As soon as the doors opened for Badflower’s show, featuring Dead Poet Society and Weathers, The Sinclair in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was packed. Fans flocked from all over the state to see these iconic acts take over the stage with powerful vocals, dynamic stage presence and individually memorable sets that can only be described as full takeovers.
Once Weathers took the stage, the level of energy coming from the crowd intensified and the dancing seemed to be uncontrollable from all areas of the venue. The band’s non stop moving on-stage became almost contagious for attendees and whether those in the crowd knew the song or not, they were able to catch on and undeniably enjoy themselves by screaming the lyrics and jumping along with the group. If there was something important to say to your friend next to you at this show, it would have had to wait. The volume level could have immediately impacted the hearing of those in the front row, but they were loving every second of it.
Weathers’ set was simply euphoric. They were able to connect with the crowd effortlessly and after their final track concluded, fans were desperate for more. With classic rocker outfits, lead singer Cameron Boyer wearing a leather jacket and red trousers, the band visually and sonically came across as destined to be headlining a major arena tour. Their chemistry as not only bandmates, but as friends, stood out to the crowd as genuine and a whole lot of fun instead of work or something they had to do as work.
Boyer’s frontman personality and on-stage energy resonated with the crowd as impressive and rather captivating. It was difficult to take your eyes off of the performance, and especially him, because it was anything but stagnant. Microphone stands were seemingly used as props and the idea of standing still on stage would probably make members of the band sick. Weathers crave the opportunity to entertain and took advantage of every second they had in Cambridge to make a lasting impression on the crowd. The passion and persona this band gives off as a group may only be able to be described as chaotic and classic rocker energy. They knew exactly how to relate to the crowd. By being vulnerably honest about their lives and inner struggles through their lyrics, fans who were not familiar with the group were able to relate to what they were singing and truly feel the music.
From the second Weathers got on stage to the second they stepped backstage, the screams did not stop. Their performance and connection with the crowd was lively and memorable. It was the perfect combination of the “I don’t care” rocker mentality and genuine gratitude. Supporters in the crowd felt more like the group’s friends and as a result, everyone felt a part of their set. It’s often difficult for a group of rockstars to make any sort of venue feel intimate, but Weathers defied those odds and took their on-stage passion to a whole new level.
If one thing is certain, this band was the perfect opener for the incredibly talented Badflower.
