The Wonder Years swing through Worcester in support of their new record (Show Review)


By Nathan Fitzgerald

The Wonder Years came through Worcester, MA with Fireworks and Macseal to promote their new record The Hum Goes on Forever this past Saturday, October 15th, 2022.

Macseal, hailing from Farmingdale, NY, started the show strong. Playing songs like “Next to You” and “Cats,” this rock band got the crowd pumped up.

Following Macseal was Fireworks, a punk rock band from Metro Detroit, Michigan. You could immediately tell how much of an impact this band has had on its fans from the way the crowd knew every word to every song. Mosh pits and crowd surfing commenced as the band jammed through classics like “Arrows” and “Run, Brother, Run.” The energy in the venue was electric.

The wait was finally over. The Wonder Years entered the stage and started their setlist with “Low Tide,” a new song that is already a fan favorite. Playing songs from their new album and plenty of fan favorites, the Wonder Years went through years of hits and intertwined new jams with older classics. The crowd went wild for every song, especially during “Cardinals” and “I Don’t Like Who I Was Then.” The Wonder Years played some slower songs too like “Flowers Where Your Face Should Be” asking the crowd to take out their lighters and cellphone flashlights to light up the venue. The Philadelphia based pop-punk band wrapped up the gig with “Came Out Swinging” and everyone in the venue went crazy.

Every band put on an incredible show and I cannot wait for them to come back around to New England again.
