“Happy. Sucks Live!” Show Review

In the fall of 2020, Happy. released their sophomore full-length album, titled “Imposter Syndrome.” Many bands have been performing virtual shows during the pandemic, and Happy. jumped on that bandwagon to do a virtual show of their own in support of this new record.

They opened their set with one of their newest tracks, “Dullboy,” an upbeat, carefree track that highlights life on the road, followed by “Hooky,” a more midtempo song that talks about the struggle of trying to maintain a balance between work and home life. 

The band’s set quickly reached its midpoint, and they decided to throw in an older track, “Don’t Overdose And Drive,” a fan favorite from the band’s debut LP, “Cult Classic” that’s quickly become one of their most popular songs. After this, they slowed things down a little bit and played the closing track from “Imposter Syndrome,” “Black Picket Fence.” The song is primarily acoustic, and will certainly have fans waving their cell phone lights in the air when the band performs this in front of an in-person audience one day. 

Before we all knew it, the set reached its conclusion, and the band closed out the show with another song of theirs that’s gained quite a bit of popularity lately – “Liarliar.” The energy and raw emotion found throughout the song grab my attention with every listen, and it’ll undoubtedly be one of the best songs of theirs to hear live.

The title of this show is ironic, because Happy. definitely does not suck live. The band put on a performance that captivated me throughout (and I think the rest of the virtual audience would agree with me on that), and I’m happy (pun definitely intended) that I finally got to see this band live for the first time.
