New Politics, The Wrecks, & Dreamers Tour Boston, MA (4/5/18)
If you’ve kept up with my past reviews, you should know by now that I love The Wrecks. I hadn’t seen them since July on their tour with All Time Low, and I was so excited to finally be able to see them again at Paradise Rock Club here in Boston on March 30th.
While I saw them opening for New Politics, they have just started their next tour with The Maine, and I am so sad that I cannot make it to any date. However, I completely recommend making it out to see them.
Because of my health issues recently, I had to leave soon after The Wrecks’ set, and so I sadly missed New Politics. Despite this, The Wrecks managed to play a set with the same energy and charisma that a headliner would, which is something that is so rare yet so special for an opener to accomplish. Their stage presence is incredible, and it’s pretty obvious that I love their music. They are just starting to make a name for themselves, and I am so excited to be a part of it from the beginning. I wholeheartedly believe that they will be one of the most outstanding bands in the coming years, and they are a must-see, especially at a smaller, more intimate venue before they blow up.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, they only have around 8 songs out. Total. That’s it. And yet they’re touring with some of the top names like All Time Low, The Maine, and New Politics, and they’re even playing Lollapalooza this year. That in-itself should speak to their talent.
I’m not saying this from a “fangirl” perspective. I have had very, very limited interaction with the members themselves, actually. I just genuinely believe in their music and in what they are doing in the industry currently. I went to the show alone, I stood in the back, and they managed to make me smile. All because of their music. That’s a big deal coming from me.
I’ll be seeing them June 4th in Illinois, and it is one of the shows I am most excited for. Make sure you check out this band – you won’t regret it.
