This past Saturday, the 4th annual Glowsticks In The Moshpit show was hosted at The Met. The evening’s bill included performances from Barbarian, Eyes on Satellites and It Lives, It Breathes among others. Spoiler: there was a moshpit and there were glowsticks in it.
As people continued to pile into the venue throughout the evening, Barbarian undoubtedly got the crowd warmed up and moving as they filmed a new music video. With a warm welcome from the audience, Eyes on Satellites emerged from a winter hibernation and delivered a phenomenal set. The number of times that I’ve listened to their EP Explorations is too high to count, but this past weekend marked my first time (finally) being able to catch them live. Their performance did not disappoint.
The band’s energy on stage was tremendous and if you looked away for a moment you might have easily missed something — such as Daniel Matthew’s bass catapulting around his body. Though shorter than many wished, the set included familiar tracks such as Dollhouse and Icarus II. To top it off, the crowd got to hear a brand new song thrown into the mix, Greenvale.
For those that may not be familiar with them, Eyes on Satellites is a 5-piece melodic post-hardcore band from Lowell, MA. Though they have only been together for a few years, they are not new to the scene and their eclectic backgrounds come together well to create a unique sound. The band’s impeccable stage presence coupled with their new song made it apparent that Eyes on Satellites is continuing to grow and push themselves musically. Being only a short way into the year, it will be exciting to see what Eyes on Satellites has in store for us in 2017.
And if you missed moshing at The Met, you can catch them next in Revere, MA on March 31st (Facebook event here) — I know I’ll be there.
