▣Paradise Rock Club | Boston, MA ▣Saturday, December 21st 2019
Daughter’s tour, with Health, came to an end last Saturday night at the Paradise Rock Club with special guest Show Me The Body. The sold-out show was the perfect way to wrap up the tour, and year!
Paradise was already rocking when I arrived. Show Me The Body was putting on an intense set for their fans. The hardcore band out of New York was kicking ass and taking names. Unfortunately, I was only able to catch the end of their set, but their hard-hitting performance was explosive! I look forward to hearing more from them in the near future.
Co-headliners, Health, were next. Once again I was being treated to some new music. The rock-trio from Los Angeles was so entertaining to watch. With a rock and electronica music influence, their sound is raw and haunting. They have an edginess to them that reminds me of Nine Inch Nails. Their performance was nothing short of perfect, it definitely made me a fan of the group.
The band I came to see was closing next. Hailing out of Providence Rhode Island, the New England four-piece Daughters, is well known for their intense sets. This would be my first time seeing them live, and I was excited to see them perform. Traveling with additional members on tour, all seven members hit the stage and received a great welcome from their fans, in their second home of Boston.
The crowd erupted from the start with some intense crowd surfing and moshing. The lead singer Alexis S.F. Marshall was fierce! His stage presence was intoxicating. I watched him be carried into the crowd on multiple occasions- they couldn’t get enough of him. They played song after song without break, leaving it all on stage for their fans. They played like as if it was their last show. Blood, sweat, and tears were left on that stage, their 90-minute set was electrifying! Daughters made a huge impression on me, and I can’t wait to see them again.
Just like their tour, this show wrapped up my year of concert reviews. All three bands were amazing live. It was the perfect way to end the year, and thanks to this concert, it went off with a bang! Until next time…
