Putting on an electric show on night three in Boston, Maggie Rogers has us in a trance. Currently, on her newest tour for Surrender, we’re all in for a sweet treat as we get a mix of new and old songs on the rotating setlist. Here’s how our night went and what to expect on this crazy journey!
“Some of the best shows I’ve played”
Del Water Gap started off the night with high energy. Bringing all they had, this crew had a full room right from the start. We got to hear songs some of their popular songs like ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ and ‘Ode to a Conversation Stuck in Your Throat.’ The lead, Jaffe, had interacted with the crowd all set—it felt like night one with how much happiness they eluded. Jaffe thanked the crowd and shouted, ‘some of the best shows I’ve ever played were in Boston…thank you all”. If you are a fan of energetic hopeless romantic tunes, be sure to listen in and be sure to get early to your show to see them jam out on stage.
Be Cool, Be Cool, Be Cool
Not us still fangirling hours after our concert! Maggie Rogers brought the heat after two previous sold-out Boston shows held at Roadrunner. Dressing in a modern-day version of an outfit Rachel Green would wear, Maggie started off the night with spins and ‘Overdrive.’
Being no stranger to the Boston music scene, Maggie had recently finished her Masters over at Harvard last year while writing Surrender. Definitely, a homecoming for both her and her fans was a bittersweet feeling in the venue. This tour and these songs have been in the works ever since the pandemic and show how much love and capacity Maggie Rogers has for her craft (and even more for her audience).
Being the creative genius that she is, everything was delivered on stage perfectly. Her entire band had been visible from even the back of the venue and surrounded by white flowers. With Maggie in the center, we got to hear ‘Shatter’ and a good mix of the new acoustic ballads on Surrender, like ‘Symphony.’
The crowd was electric in response to seeing Maggie from the minute they stepped into the venue. If you are planning to go as a fan, get there early! Be prepared to enjoy the company of the Del Water Gap family and be prepared for an electrifying show. We had the best time seeing what Maggie Rogers and her crew cooked up and will keep a bookmark to revisit until the next time she’s in town!
