Movements plays their biggest headlining East Coast show to date

By Nathan Fitzgerald

Movements brought their “RUCKUS!” tour to Boston and it was their biggest East Coast headlining show they have ever played. Boston has always felt like a hometown show to Movements, and it is clear why. The band spoke of their time playing the Middle East venue in Boston back when they first began. It was their first non-hometown show where the crowd was singing along. Ever since then, Boston has been one of their favorite cities to play. Fans piled into Roadrunner, a newer venue in Boston which opened in 2022. It was a great spot to catch a show, with phenomenal sound and lighting. Movements brought a lineup of bands that all put on an incredible show.

Opening up the gig was Paerish, a four piece alternative rock band from France. Known for songs like “Still There” and “Sequoia,” they got the crowd moving.

Next up was Webbed Wing, a rock band from Philadelphia, PA. Playing both newer jams like “Further” and older tracks, the band revved up the crowd and elevated the energy in the venue.

Tigers Jaw followed, an American rock band from Scranton, PA that formed in 2005. After all these years they still come with the same energy and continue to put out solid records for fans to enjoy. They transitioned seamlessly through both older tracks from their self titled album and newer songs from their latest album “I Won’t Care How You Remember Me.”

Finally the time had come for Movements, the post-hardcore powerhouse from Orange County, California. Formed in 2015, they hit the ground running after signing with Fearless Records, and the rest is history. The setlist started off strong with jams from their newest record “RUCKUS!” The crowd went crazy as the band started with “Lead Pipe,” and transitioned to their older material from the “Feel Something” record. When they started playing “Colorblind,” there wasn’t one fan in the venue not singing along. Between songs the band interacted with the crowd and offered an opportunity to win a lifetime spot on the guest list for any show in the fans’ city via a raffle. They transitioned into newer songs such as “I Hope You Choke” from the new album, and ended the set with their hit single “Daylily.” Movements left everything they had on the stage and promised to be back soon. I think I speak for all of the fans at the show when I say I can’t wait for them to return.
