There can only be one word for this concert: absolute sensational. The typical small venue that The 1975 usually performs at transformed into the renowned Madison Square Garden that so many artists dream of performing at.

Not only were the performers very energetic and the crowd fed on that energy, it felt like the 20,000 people knew each and every lyric they performed. This is very different than the typical show one might see of The 1975, due to the fact that they usually play smaller shows, it still felt intimate and personal.
Last Saturday I had the opportunity to see the Boston Calling festival in Harvard Square. The spotty clouds and somewhat warm weather made it perfect to see bands such as Oh Wonder, The xx and The 1975. Like any festival, there was a lot of walking, long lines for food, but the shows were incredible.

I intend to upload various pictures and images that I’ve taken, either regarding my love of music or photography Continue reading
