Opener "Atop a Cake" got everyone on their feet and up to the front of the stage, without having to be coaxed by Rankin who, despite her deadpan banter and sarcastic remarks throughout the set, appreciated the gesture. While the band slowed the pace a bit early on with "Ones Who Love You," standout album cut "Party Police" eventually got the gently-swaying onlookers clapping along during an especially enthusiastic synth breakdown. The energy carried over into "Adult Diversion" and then into obvious favourite "Archie, Marry Me," which brought the short, but sweet set to a close.
