Shawn Mendes

June 21
7:30 p.m.
Indie Pop, Pop, Singer-Songwriter

The acoustic drop in Shawn Mendes’ “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” was a key moment for pop this decade, demonstrating that other genres—pop-folk, arena-rock, funk retro—have assumed the distinctive structure of EDM songs. The Canadian singer-songwriter’s latest album, Shawn Mendes, blends those genres and more into a polished, eclectic mix, unified by his oleaginous voice. With Alessia Cara.
