|If you have the random desire to travel to Massachusetts, you need to stop at the Newbury Comics in Norwood. I've seen one other in-store show there (Therefore I Am) and the store and show were both unbelievable. |
I honestly had never really heard Set Your Goals' music before, so I came more for the sake of draining my wallet on music. I ended up buying their new album and really digging their set. They opened with the title track, and the songs I can remember the titles of were "Echoes", "Like You to Me", "Gaia Bleeds", and the album closer, "Our Ethos". The crowd was unbelievably enthusiastic for an instore, which, because there's a ton of merchandise everything that could get easily broken, usually means not a lot of movement. There were the set of ridiculous fans that knew every song by heart and kept trying to run into bookshelves and guards, but I loved the fans making the show just a little more lively and jumping at the band and singing the songs. Therefore I Am, even though they're super-local and get a ton of respect around here, didn't even get this kind of enthusiam. Even though I'm reading a ton of hate on this new album, I'm definitely enjoying it. I hear a lot of New Found Glory and Movielife influence in this and just that good, "old school" pop-punk sound that New Found Glory couldn't recreate on their new album. Absolutely recommend this album and band; I'm probably extremely late on the bandwagon, but they're definitely going to get huge off at least one single from this album.
