A loud and intimate evening with Vendetta Red

Last Thursday, Jet City Stream had Seattle band Vendetta Red perform on the air live from Robert Lang Studios in Shoreline.

“This is our fourth Jet City Stream session and it will for sure be the loudest,” said host Marco Collins. He was right.

There were probably no more than 30 people in attendance, but that was enough to pack the studio, and it got loud in a hurry. The crowd went crazy when Vendetta Red entered the room to start the performance.

While the band performed their song “Shatterday,” one fan grabbed the microphone in the middle of the song to sing the chorus, and he actually sounded pretty good.

Vendetta Red was set to play four songs and do an interview with Marco. It turned into something like eight songs and two interviews, but nobody complained about the change in plans.

The interview portion was extremely personal while Marco asked VR frontman Zach Davidson about the band’s struggle to deal with the hype and expectations surrounding the band in the early to mid-2000s. “I saw bands succeeding that I considered inferior … I kept telling myself, ‘People are going to get it,’ ” said Davidson.

They played their new song “Close To Me” and classics like “Shatterday.” They even played covers of Nirvana’s “Territorial Pissings” and Soundgarden’s “Rusty Cage.”

See the video for “Shatterday” below and keep an eye out for the new Vendetta Red record, “Scripture,” probably sometime later this year. More info on that soon.
