Capitalizing on every day on the road Set It Off and Palisades broke off from their supporting roles on One Ok Rock’s Ambitions North American Tour for a short run of headlining dates through the northeast.
Surprisingly Brighton Music Hall was filled out and ready to go by the time Palisades hit the stage, taking no time at all to get the crowd moving. Their setlist was drawn exclusively of tracks from their 2017 self-titled release, save a cover of X Ambassadors “Unsteady” to really seal the approval of the crowd before ending their set with their latest bangin’ single “Let Down”. Half way through their set, frontman Louis Miceli had the house lights brought down and the crowd light up the room as he dedicated their song “Dark” to Chester Bennington. Despite being fresh off a lineup change, Palisades have obviously honed in on their sound and proven their direction is forward.

The boys in Set It Off took a vastly different approach to their setlist; while still heavily supporting 2016’s Upside Down they managed to pull from their previous two full lengths as well over the course of their fifteen song set. Leveraging every inch of available stage Guitarists Zach DeWall and Boston local Dan Clermont frequently traded sides of the stage throughout the set to evenly engage the crowd, while frontman Cody Carson couldn’t resist from continually performing from on top of the first few rows of concert goers, meanwhile Maxx Danziger sits back on the throne and effortlessly rips through their set often making faces at everyone who makes eye contact with him. Set It Off had no problem stretching their supporting set into a full on headliner performance. Pushing out banger after banger and keeping the crowd with their hands in the air an hour into your set is no easy task but Set It Off made it look easy. In no time at all it seemed they were already walking off stage despite having burned through a dozen songs. To kick off their encore singer Cody Carson accompanied by Dan on acoustic guitar, quickly returned to the stage to revisit their 2012 release Cinematics with “Swan Song”, then revisiting that album again as Maxx and Dan retook the stage for “Dream Catcher”
