The stage was dark blue and soft wolf howls echoed from lead singer Nick Wold's mouth as Dreamers stepped on. The 3 piece hailing from Brooklyn started off with a bang as the punk speed riffs of "Last Night On Earth" rang out and were closely followed by rhythmic pop stand out "Shooting Shadows." They were the last band up, but Wold's voice has that edgy, prolific tone that drew the bar lingerers forward to fuel the dance party that was to come.
A crowd heckler named Tom called out that he liked Wold's slicked back hair, to which he replied he did it just for us. The band was very personal with every individual in the room, with eyes focusing on each group, and stories of the girl who sold them clothes at Urban Outfitters standing in the front. The band even said that every time they're in Boston, they guest-list Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, in hopes that they lurk out of the corner.
"Cry Out For Me" and "Never Too Late to Dance" were rich with harmonies from drummer Jacob Wick, tying together the cohesive unit that Dreamers has become. The latter even provoked its name stake and there were break outs of the worm on the dance floor "Lucky Dog" got the men in the room to amp up (as the crowd was mostly female) with its speed, twists and turns, and sudden grungy stop.
"Come Down Slow" eased the crowd with its simplistic vocal intro, while "Painkiller" brought the mood back up with danceable beats.The one-two punch of new single "Drugs" and first single "Wolves" closed out the show with high energy, but not before a collective howl from the band and crowd.
Overall, Dreamers brought the fast paced, power pop beats to break us out of a rainy Monday and prepare us for their promising future.
