Boyish, PC: Ann StorlieBrooklyn-based and self-described “indie queer duo” Boyish brought glam rock to the stage as they opened with “Superstar,” “Is This a Breakdown Baby?” and “You Wanna Hurt Me.” Comprised of singer-songwriter India Shore and guitarist Claire Altendahl, the two commanded the stage in a way that was both intimate and compelling during “I Think I Hate It Here” and “Congratulations” from their 2022 EP My Friend Mica before closing with “FUCK YOU HEATHER” from 2020’s Garden Spider.

The Beaches – consisting of lead vocalist/bassist Jordan Miller, her sister, guitarist Kylie Miller, keyboardist/guitarist Leandra Earl; and drummer Eliza Enman-McDaniel have had great success since the release of their sophomore LP Blame My Ex released in Fall 2023. The album expands on the bands upbeat music and lyrics to reveal a vulnerable side without losing the energy and danceability they are known for.

The bands hour-long set was largely comprised of tracks from the new album including “Cigarette,” “Shower Beer,” “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Paranoid,” “Everything Is Boring,” and the viral song of the summer “Blame Brett.” The four piece also touched on their debut album Late Show with “T-Shirt” and “Back of My Heart” as well as “Grow Up Tomorrow” and “My People” from their 2022 End of Summer EP. Fans never stopped dancing as the band’s intoxicating energy flowed throughout their entire set before ending the show with an encore of “Kismet” from Blame My Ex.
