DREAMERS, Weathers, Morgxn Tour Boston, MA (9/30/18)
I’m back! With school, working multiple jobs, and trying to have a social life, this account has taken a hit, although that is somewhat surprising given that all my jobs are in the music industry in one way or another. Despite working at two venues, I have only attended one concert since being back in Boston, and that was DREAMERS at Brighton Music Hall on September 30th.
I’ve seen DREAMERS before as openers, but this is their first headline tour, with support from Weathers and Morgxn (and Rad Horror, but they didn’t play the Boston show). It was a small show at a small venue. I wouldn’t call it intimate, because DREAMERS didn’t do anything to make it intimate, but I’ll get to that later.
The first opener, Morgxn, really surprised me. His voice was incredible, and he kept the energy up with a stage presence bigger than the stage he was on. He was someone I made a mental note to listen to after the show.
I don’t really remember Weathers’ set, and maybe that says something. They were good, and the crowd seemed into it, but that was about it.
Finally, DREAMERS came on stage. As I said earlier, I’ve seen them as openers and I thought they were great, and I had hopes that they would be even better as headliners. I was wrong. Maybe it got into their head that everyone was there for them and so they put less effort into interacting with the crowd, but when you headline, you have more time to talk to your fans, connect with them, and, as I said, make it intimate, especially at a smaller venue. That didn’t happen at this show, and I was disappointed.
I’m not saying they’re not talented, because they are, otherwise I wouldn’t have gone to their show in the first place. I believe they just lack experience, and I hope they grow from this tour and continue to make their headlining shows better and better.
I hope to be back to posting regularly, especially with reviews. Thank you all for your patience, and I’ll talk to you soon!
