On February 5, Brockhampton brought their high energy and frantic antics that fans have come to know and love to a sold out show at the House Of Blues. A sea of cool kids in the trendiest clothes, with “super fans” wearing blue face paint and orange jumpsuits, waited eagerly in the cold Boston Winter to forget about the upcoming week just for a few hours to boogie with “America’s Favorite Boy Band.”
Dan Bejar’s music as Destroyer is poetic, challenging, and mysterious. The band’s live performance gives life to music, it’s like finally getting the chance to see the pieces of the puzzle up close. Bejar’s performance in particular is like seeing a magician pull off a trick that leaves you amazed at the end.
Strange Passage, Mini Dresses, Wildhoney and Horse Jumper of Love brought together a mix of ambient pop songs, dreamy reverb and infectious instrumentation that made for a great night at Great Scott this past Saturday.
The Killers put on an exciting, high energy show at the TD Garden, delighting an audience that sang along to every single word.
