Walking down the stairs into Underground Arts, the sounds of the opening act Speedy Ortiz hit me before I even get my hand stamped. A diverse crowd had gathered to enjoy the noise pop group led by Sadie Dupuis, who performed with a flower in her hair.

After a break, the members of the hip-hop collective Doomtree began to pile onto the stage. It became clear that they were performing both individually and as a unified front. Like acts in a play, each told a different narrative that contributed and eventually formed the final product.

With Paper Tiger and Lazerbeak providing the musical foundation, the rest of the members demonstratively performed tracks from their third album, All Hands, which dropped January of this year.

Each member impetuously shot smiles at one another throughout the show, giving you the feeling that they were enjoying themselves as much as the audience was. For their last song, they injected themselves into the crowd bellowing the lyrics to P.O.S.’s “Get Down.”

After their set, the Minneapolis natives took time to interact with fans before packing up to continue their tour that will make stops in New England, along the West Coast and eventually Australia and the UK.
