House Of Blues, Boston, MA

Last night, at the House of Blues, Andy Hull and crew lit up the stage like no other. Playing a solid set filled with highlights from their last two albums, they had the fans singing along nearly the entire time. Hull's comments indicated how truly honored and still surprised the band is to play to such a crowd. As he sings in "Deer," "Dear everybody that has paid to see my band, it's still confusing, I'll never understand". Running through a softer, yet equally beautiful rendition of "Simple Math" and the crowd sing-along "Pensacola," there was never a dull moment. Their newest album, Simple Math, is one of my favorites of the year and live it was even better. The powerful moments were made all the more epic and the softer parts became even more gentle thanks to Hull's honest, heartfelt voice. If you have the chance to see them live, take the opportunity and get ready for one of the wildest, liveliest shows you will ever see.
