The band Waterparks headlined a sold out show on Friday at House of Blues in Boston, MA. The two openers for the show were Elliot Lee and Hunny.
First up to the stage to start the night was artist Elliot Lee. Elliott is a newer artist that had stated this was only their second tour and this night’s show was the biggest venue they had played yet. The artist gushed in between songs about being able to play a sold out show at such an impressive venue and showing her appreciation to the crowed who were giving their music a chance. The songs held their own, upbeat and poppy with a unique twist put on them. There was a slow song that got phone lights filling up the venue and other more upbeat songs that got the fans dancing and singing. Judging by this performance, Elliott will be on many more tours.
Front the moment they got on stage, their stage presence was great. The band may only be three members but Austen and Geoff made the most of the space, using both sides of the stage and their stage pieces. When they first went onstage, Austen was wearing a red winter coat with a fuzzy trim on the hood so you couldn’t even see his face unless you were front row when he was singing at the front of the stage. After the first couple of songs the vocalist took off the coach and was chatting to the crowd in between songs, even calling his mom and dad on Facetime. The band connected to their audience in between most songs and played hit after hit.
The songs they played through their set spanned from all of their discography, new and old songs and in between even. They made a few songs acoustic and even played a three song encore at the end of the night. The set was longer than some fans may have expected but the mix of songs kept everyone dancing, singing, jumping, and just enjoying themselves the whole time. Hopefully it won’t be so long until they’re back next time, Boston loves Waterparks.
