show recap + gallery; weathers on the ok, i’m sick tour in boston, ma, by emma egan
A week ago, I got the chance to see one of my favorite groups, Weathers, on the Boston stop of their tour with Badflower and Dead Poets Society and, for a lack of better words, they totally blew my socks off.
As the boys of Weathers stepped into the light, the audience launched themselves towards the stage. The boys greeted the crowd with extremely high energy, only to be met with double the enthusiasm from their ravid east coast fans. If you weren’t a fan of Weathers before their set, you undoubtedly left as one. Every song on the setlist was an absolute hit, and it was incredible to hear the crowd sing the lyrics back to them.
The last time I saw Weathers was as the opener for Dreamers fall tour in 2019, and the groups growth over the last year has been incomprehensible. Their set felt like the next evolution of Weathers, with performance and musicality amped up to 11. With a longer opening set, Weathers were able to cover a large spanse of their own catalog, including “Poser”, “Carry Us Home”, “Problems”, and “Happy Pills” as well as a cover of My Chemical Romance’s “Famous Last Words”. The set also included some of their newer work, most notably their newest single and my personal favorite, “Lonely Vampire”.
Weathers’ set demonstrated once again how much they have to give to the alternative genre. Though they’re still a younger band, they’ve more than proven their ability to make incredible music, and I can’t wait to see what’s next for them. Next time the boys hit your city, get your tickets early, because this band is about to take off in a huge way.
