We rode in on the T and walked to the House of Blues. We ended up waiting on top of the Mass Pike and the line was pretty long. It stretched all the way over the Mass Pike and turned a corner of the street. That probably doesn’t mean anything to you, but it was a long line, let’s just say that. We got bored so we made you guys a boring video about waiting in line. And we waited for quite a bit. At least an hour. I heard two policemen talking about the line and how long it was and how surprised they were at the amount of fans that showed up.
They let us in the House of Blues and the guy who checked our coats was eating Red Vines and there was a jar that said “Tipping is Totally Awesome”. And then we walked through the doors inside.
It was wicked loud. Like so loud I could feel it in my chest, in my heart. In a good way. It was incredible. We all had floor seats so we walked down and it was reeealllyyy packed. But we could still see the stage fine. The first thing we saw was the drum set that had the STARKID logo on it.
She was the opening and she was flawless. All of her songs were amazing her voice was incredible and her outfit was gorgeous. She also sang this song and you can see she had the disco ball going and everything!
She joked and said “Hello, Boston: home of baked beans, the Red Sox, and Joe Walker.” It was cool that she talked to us a bit too. She said “What are you all doing in my house? House of Blues, that is.” She talked about how we were the biggest crowd (2,500 all packed into the House of Blues) and how great and surreal it was for her, being used to crowds of fifty in bars. She took a picture of us and tweeted it!!!
And when Charlene was singing “Dress and Tie” Darren just skips out on stage and sings with her and everyone in the audience literally lost it. It got so loud and so crazy. I mean, can you blame them? It was the first time anyone had seen Darren all night. Darren just said “Hey Boston” in this sweet voice.
Then about forty minutes later, the actual Starkid show started. They had a brief intro where they talked a bit and then they all came on with space helmets on. They sang “I Wanna Be” and it was so great.
Granger Danger and Joey and Lauren had a really adorable skit with “stool talk” and it was the best.
Status Quo and the guys did a really great rendition of it. It was different but really good.
Get Back Up was awesome. Lauren was so great.
Different As Can Be was sung by Joe Walker and Brian Holden because Brian Rosenthal wasn’t able to come on tour. But they did a good job. You don’t see it in this video because this was the 2pm show, but at my show Joe said something like “What bone could possibly have to pick with me?” and Brian said “A femur!”
Gettin’ Along was great with Joe and Dylan. They did a bit of the dance too :]
Boy Toy was something I didn’t expect them to sing at all, so I was really happy they did. Lauren introduced it as a song “about believing in yourself”. All of the guys’ dancing (especially Darren) in the background was priceless. Joey embraced his inner Rick Richter and danced shirtless with a stick-on mustache. You can see a bit of it in the video. There were bubbles and confetti and the disco ball was going. It was so great.
Coolest Girl was sung by Meredith and she did an amazing job. Probably even better than Bonnie. This video is the one from Toronto, there isn’t one from Boston yet.
No Way was really good too! The girls did a fantastic job! We’re usually used to the guys singing it but the girls really did well.
To Have a Home and Not Alone were Darren’s two, main, solos. He was flawless obviously. It was just really, really great to see him back with the Starkids. And you guys don’t even understand. You are always hearing some modified version of his voice, through Youtube and speakers or pre-recorded. But there is nothing like his voice live. It’s just so amazing. He was mesmerizing.
They also did Days of Summer and Back to Hogwarts at the 2pm show. And they did it as an encore last night too I think, but I left before that.
They weren’t able to do any signings or anything, I guess it was really crazy and the police were really nervous about it so they said no.
