Hundredth, No Bragging Rights, and Vanna at Red Room
One of the biggest tours of the year hit Seattle on Wednesday; well sort of. Due to the loss of electricity for countless hours, the Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain, Vanna, Hundredth and No Bragging Rights show was put on hold while the problem was seeking a solution. Sadly, the power didn’t come back on within the designated time frame for the show to go on and was cancelled. Some of the bands (Vanna, Hundredth & No Bragging Rights) took this time to sell some merch to the anxious show-goers. All hope was lost, until a go-ahead call from Tacoma’s own Redroom stated that the show could be moved there. Both bands and fans hustled to gather themselves and hustled to their vehicles to make this journey.
If you’ve been to The Redroom, you know all about the size of the venue and the lack of a stage. Some saw this as a problem, but the bands saw this as a rare chance at a floor show. The touring package of Vanna, Hundredth and No Bragging Rights joined a show at the venue that was already in progress, while the intro was very chaotic, things slowly started working out and bands were assigned set times. I for one haven’t ever been to The Redroom, so this was a new experience for me and boy was it an experience. I kept hearing through the massive crowd that this could possibly be the biggest show the venue has seen. After two bands from the prior show played, Hundredth took their turn and didn’t disappoint. Whether you were standing in the back trying to avoid being hit or tossing yourself across the venue, you could tell the crowd was into every second. No Bragging Rights was up next and have incredibly apparent love for the Seattle/Tacoma music scene as it showed through every second of their energetic set; massive pile ons and sing-a-longs, were displayed throughout.
Vanna closed out the night (for the tour package) and didn’t letdown one of their favorite cities to tour. Being as it was a floor show, vocalist Davey Muise had free reign of the floor and used every square inch of the venue while performing. After their set, I can clearly say they made some new fans in Seattle/Tacoma. It made me proud to see a music scene so strong come together to make this almost “no show” turn into something bigger than it already was.
