Superorganism brought the party to Port City Music Hall as their “World Wide Trip Cont…” tour neared its end. Starting at Coachella and ending in Boston, the group had been on the road for the better part of a month. With support from Simpson, both artists owned the stage and captivated the crowd.

Simpson, a hip-hop/indie artist hailing from Richmond, Virginia opened for Superorganism on their “World Wide Trip Cont...” tour.

Heading on stage with her DJ and a MacBook, her catchy rhymes and bubbly beats had you bobbing and swaying for her whole set.

Playing her new hit single “Switch Lanes” twice, she had the entire crowd moving side to side during the chorus.

Once Simpson left the stage, the lights dimmed and seven figures in sequin cloaks emerged from stage left. Strobe lights were going constantly as glitter-covered Superorganism opened with “SPRORGNSM.”

Projected images washed over the entire band as they continued through their set. The back up singers Ruby, B, and Soul were dancing in sync and playing tambourines with more energy and excitement than I'd ever experienced. I looked at my watch and couldn't believe they had been playing for an hour, it just flew by.

Their set came to a close with “Something for Your M.I.N.D.” They require apples for this song as there's a 'crunch' that they replicate, however they only had a few oranges, a peach, and two limes. The vocalist, Orono, and back-up singer, B, got stuck with the two limes. One bite in, and they both spit them out but didn't miss a beat!
