This past Thursday, at The House of Blues Boston, Savoy brought their “Get Lazer’d” tour and lived up to their tours name. When we first got to the HOBB we were expecting the show to start right at 7pm like it was supposed to. Unfortunately, for some reason, the opening performer did not start their set until 8:30 so there was a lot of waiting time. As I waited for the show to start I noticed the sound tech and lighting tech get into the booth, so I knew something was about to happen soon.
And I was right! The opening DJ “Low Bounce” came out and started hitting the decks hard. His variety of genres he played was a bit overwhelming and ranged from dubstep to House music. I found this a bit odd since you don’t see artists to often jump from one extreme to another. His set lasted for almost 2 hours which also surprised me because I had figured there was going to be more than one performer before Savoy. After about 1.5 hours, the crowd started to get a little bored and just wanted to see Savoy. Overall though, “Low Bounce” was able to put on a pretty decent set to start off the night.
After another 30 minutes of waiting, Savoy finally hit the stage. The moment we were all waiting for had finally arrived. As most performers who use a lot of lasers in their performances, you don’t see the lasers kick in until midway through the first song or into the second song. The crowd was loving the opening song of Savoy, but once the lasers kicked on the crowd screamed louder than they have all night. With having a live drummer and lasers on stage, their performance was amazing and I wouldn’t have expected anything less. This is one of the best “live” EDM performances I have ever seen, mostly due to the fact that I have only seen a “live” band with Pretty lights during his Analog Future Tour.
The verdict? Savoy is a must see when it comes to electronic music performances.
