Nothing’s better than going to a concert at The Irenic, and enjoying some gnarly tunes from Morgxn, Weathers, and DREAMERS.
DREAMERS are an American rock trio consisting of band members Nick Wold, Jacob Wick, and Marc Nelson, and they just debuted their first headlining tour in San Diego at The Irenic with the Weathers and Morgxn by their side.
Morgxn, an alternative singer/songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee, kicked off the set. Morgxn ran onto stage full of energy and enthusiasm and had the crowd moving from the very moment he stepped on stage. Throughout his performance, Morgxn sang a number of songs from his debut album “Vital,” which was released this May. Some of the highlights he performed included, “Alone/Forever,” “Vital,” “Harpoon (how does it feel),” and “Bruised“. During his performance Morgxn shared some insight into some of the meanings behind his songs. At one point during his performance, he even took the time to describe our society norms of beauty, and express that since there’s no standard of what beauty should be, we’re all beautiful. While listening to Morgxn’s wide vocal range and witnessing the energy he brought with him on stage, you couldn’t help but want to jump around and dance with him. There was a time Morgxn even came off stage into the middle of the crowd and sang a song within arm’s reach of the audience.
The next performers to come onto stage was Weathers. Weathers are an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band consists of drummer Cole Carson, bassist Brennen Bates, guitarist Cameron Olsen, and vocalist Cameron Boyer. Giving off a rock persona, the Weathers brought on stage a fun filled performance full of upbeat lively songs that made you want to rock your head back and forth to the beat. While the Weathers were on stage, you couldn’t seem to get enough of them, as they played with high energy beats and guitar solos you just had to dance along to. The group played music from their most recent album “Kids in the Night,” released in June of this year. Additionally, they played some of their other hits such as, “1983,” “I’m Not Ok,” “Poser,” “Happy Pills“. Overall, Weathers made you want to get up, dance, and enjoy the good vibes of their music.
After two great performances by Morgxn and Weathers, the venue dimmed the lights and the stage became engulfed in fog. Suddenly, a huge sign in the back lit up, spelling out, “DREAMERS.” After an ominous monologue, DREAMERS finally appeared on stage. They started their set with a song called “SCREWS,” a single off their latest EP, “Fly.” You could tell that there was definitely a connection between the audience and the band with every song the DREAMERS played. The band looked very comfortable on stage and made sure that the audience was having a great time too. At one point, the audience even sang, “Happy Birthday,” to lead vocalist Nick Wold. With a wide variety of songs, DREAMERS never failed to make you feel something throughout their set. From playing a slow tempo-ed, relaxed song for all the couples in the audience, to getting the whole crowd to mosh in another song, they had something for just about everyone. Fortunately, the band went through across their whole discography, including their hilariously titled debut album, “This Album Does Not Exist.” After laying out an amazing performance, the band left the stage only to be called back by the audience chanting “Encore!” The band eventually led out the show with two more songs from their debut album before it all came to an end.
Signifying a great start to the beginning of their tour, it’s crazy to imagine where all these great artists will go in their careers.
