Soccer Mommy made their way to a nearly sold out House of Blues Boston on a cold November night in support of their new critically acclaimed album Sometimes, Forever. Sophie Allison a.k.a the genius behind Soccer Mommy is arguably one of the best songwriters in the scene and it is very apparent on the new album. The title Sometimes, Forever refers to the idea that both good and bad feelings are cyclical. “Sorrow and emptiness will pass, but they will always come back around — as will joy,” Sophie says. “At some point you’re forced to say, I’ll just have to take both.” It’s one of her most beautifully heart wrenching albums yet, full of all the emotions and vulnerability. Soccer Mommy have come a long way since their debut album Clean, and are only getting better with each new release. Fans were eager to hear songs from Sometimes, Forever live as well as some classics from older releases. Fear not if you weren’t at the show we have a lowdown of what happened at the Boston date.
Fans packed the venue early eagerly awaiting Soccer Mommy to take the stage. For some its been a minute since they have seen Soccer Mommy so it was even that much more exciting. To get the night started off, Lightning Bug would really wow the crowd with their soothing vocals and soft sounds. Everyone was swaying along in tune. 9:15 rolled around and it was time for Soccer Mommy to grace the stage. The notes of “Bones” started to play and the crowd cheered ever so loudly. The night included a great mixture of songs from all of her projects including hit songs like “Circle The Drain”, “Shotgun”, “Still Clean”, and “Your Dog”. Sophie took a moment to show her appreciation for the Boston crowd and for always showing their support over the years, claiming it’s one of her favorite places to play every time. Soccer Mommy knows how to put on a spectacular show each time they go on tour. Going to a Soccer Mommy show you are sure to have the best time, while also shedding some tears here and there as many people seemed to be doing during some songs. There’s so much emotion in a Soccer Mommy show sometimes you just have to let it all out, and Sophie’s soft smooth vocals will do that to you sometimes.
