It’s a typical Monday night, but there’s nothing typical about Atlas Genius’ performance at the House of Blues. Having their performance sandwiched between Night Riots’ preceding set, with Andrew McMahon to follow, the Australian rock band added to the energy of an excited, sold-out crowd.
Kicking off the night with songs from their latest record, “Inanimate Objects,” and following with fan favorites along the likes of “If So,” “Molecules,” and Trojans,” Atlas Genius got everyone on their feet and singing along. Donning a blue electric guitar and having blue stage lights to match, lead singer Keith Jeffery created quite the commotion and even jumped down from the stage at one point of their performance.
Every concert-goer was either holding a drink and singing along, or recording the set through their phones. It could just be the bright lights and crystal clear guitar parts, but it was obvious that Atlas Genius had the crowd captivated.
