The stacked pop-punk lineup for Set It Off’s “Welcome to Elsewhere” tour also included longtime fan favorites As It Is and the female-fronted Australian band Stand Atlantic.
The night opened with As It Is bursting onto the stage performing an enthusiastic set, including their catchy hits “Dial Tones” and “IDGAF”.
Stand Atlantic was a whirlwind of energy. I had seen them live a few years back but their energy tonight was next-level. Vocalist Bonnie wore a shirt that said, “Fuck you Stand Atlantic”She addressed the audience, “I have a question for you, do you have a ‘Deathwish’?” as they launched into their most recent single. They also played one of their biggest hits, “Hate Me (Sometimes)”. They closed out the set with “molotov [OK]” as the audience roared.
Set It Off took the stage surrounded by an eclectic stage setup of “Elsewhere”, complete with mannequins with camera heads, skeletons, and neon plants. The band was decked out as well, complete with face paint. Vocalist Cody Carson’s outfit was straight out of the 80’s/90’s with a neon windbreaker and painted text and graphics on his jeans. The trio opened with “Skeleton” and then burst right into their new single, “Projector”. The crowd sang along with every song and jumped around as much as the band themselves. Their explosive set was truly the highlight of the evening and a night that fans won’t soon forget. Pun intended, they truly Set It Off. Keep an eye out for the band’s latest album, “Elsewhere”, due out March 11th!
