On September 26th,  I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite bands, boygenius! I had known they were coming to Boston for a while now, so I bought my ticket with my roommates. On the night of the show the excitement in me had begun brewing, and my roommates and I had gone to the venue early. We had floor seats so we ended up getting in the middle of the pit, so not a bad view at all!

At 8 p.m. the opener Palehound went on stage, and I ended up really liking them. Their set lasted about 30 minutes and they played almost 20 of their songs, including some mashups. Overall their music was really good, some of my favorites being: “ Eye on the Bat” and “My evil”.

Whenever boygenius holds a concert they usually have charities involved for specific shows. Some of the charities for my specific show were Native-land which gives information on what land the concerts being held at and how you can support the culture group that comes from it, and a ally coalition site which provides help to LGBTQ+ youth. After that, boygenius took the stage and I was so excited! They opened with one of my favorite songs, “$20” and the energy was at an all time high throughout the crowd. My roommates and I and the girls that were next to us all were screaming and having a great time there. Halfway through the set they debuted a new song from there upcoming EP called “the rest,” and they played “Afraid of the heights” which sounded amazing and I cannot wait for it to come out. Some of my other favorites from the night had to have been “Cool about It”, “ Not Strong Enough”, and “ Emily I’m Sorry”.

Overall I highly recommend getting last minute concert tickets and going to see your favorite artists, I loved my experience at the show and would do it again in a heartbeat.
