Sporting a matching orange set and white sneakers, Rex Orange County graced the Greek Theatre as part of his “Who Cares?” tour June 5, beckoning people from all over the Bay Area to Berkeley. 

The stage’s colorful design shifted thematically as the alternative singer’s setlist moved through albums. As he began to perform some of his older songs — including the popular “Sunflower” — the background thumbs-up figurines associated with his most recent album Who Cares? transformed into flower figurines with disco-ball centers.

In between set changes, Rex performed some songs solo in front of a black curtain detailed with only a cartoon moon and sun. His piano was decorated with mirror letters spelling out “Berkeley,” which beautifully reflected the illumination of phone flashlights from the audience. The small yet intimate touch paid homage to the city of Berkeley and its love of live music and the artist. Indeed, the concert was a “10/10.”
