As the temperature decreases in Boston and the fall foliage fades further along Bay State Road, students are finding comfort in the plethora of musical artists visiting the city. One small artist who revisited Boston recently was Sophia Allison, better known by her stage name, Soccer Mommy.
Allison, 25, started her journey as “Soccer Mommy” back in 2018 when she released her debut album, Clean. Since then, she has released two more critically acclaimed albums and has toured all over the world. Currently, Allison is on tour with her band celebrating the release of her third studio album, Sometimes Forever. It’s a retrospective, alternative-rock record contemplating flaws within failed, past relationships and investigating how to mend those mistakes into something fulfilling.
On November 6th, 2022, Matt Lutkins, Boston University News Service concert photographer, made his way over to the House of Blues in Fenway to photograph Soccer Mommy. The concert radiated warmth during these frigid, desolate, post-Daylight Savings days; Soccer Mommy shredded on her bass, rocked the House of Blues’ foundation, and led the crowd in some head-nodding, cathartic chants.
Check out these scenes from the Soccer Mommy show.
