Maggie Lindemann isn’t just a “pretty girl” and she is continuing to prove and celebrate that on her Sucker Punch headlining tour, which crashed Boston on April 4.
Following a vivacious alt/indie set from Kailee Morgue, the sold-out crowd was ready to mosh to Maggie’s pop-punk discography.
The tone for the 19 song set was established with an audio excerpt from the 2011 film Sucker Punch. “..But don’t let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon…” Sweet Pea’s voice echoed through the rafters.
With a flash of strobes, Maggie jumped at the mic to begin.
“I can say I made it to Harvard,” she teased from the Cambridge, Massachusetts stage.
The set, which kicked off with “take me nowhere,” pulled from her debut album Sucker Punch, as well as her EP Paranoia. The captivated audience sang along to “she knows it,” waved their arms to “you’re not special,” and moshed to everything else.
“Did I see a mosh pit?,” she asked the crowd before awarding them with “that’s the best fucking mosh pit I’ve ever seen. I love it!”
Maggie continued to interact with the crowd through cellphone selfies, kneeling at the edge of the stage, and getting vulnerable while singing from the drum platform.
Before her encore, Maggie played another excerpt from Sweet Pea’s powerful Sucker Punch monologue, “you have all the weapons you need… Now fight!”
It’s taken seven years for Maggie to fight for and unleash her authentic self. This sound and tour solidifies that she has won the battle and is paving the way for others to do the same.
