The band that first started at Tufts University returned to their hometown March 31, touring on their new EP “To Dream.” A foil of their 2017 EP “Too Much,” the duo played on the legendary House of Blues stage.

 

“We told you Timeflies were born down the street,” said Cal Shapiro, the lead singer of the group. “It’s been our dream to come to this stage at the House of Blues and now that we are here, here is a promise: We are always gunna be the same band.”

 

Half-way through the show, Shapiro and his counterpart Rob Resnick (Rez) freestyle rapped a tribute to Boston, including the words “Fenway,” “Darty Season,” and “Dilly Dilly,” to name a few. As the words flashed across the screen, the crowd exploded into applause and love for both the city and the band.

 

Opening for Timeflies was the band Baby Raptors, led by the ski-suited Tora Fisher (pictured.) Smiling through her entire act, her pink hair was not the only thing lighting up the stage.

 

The second opener was rapper Bryce Vine, who stole the show and the hearts of many in the crowd. Vine’s smooth vocals and fast-but-not-too-fast rapping were a perfect compliment to the pop that bookended his set.
