So I may be a little biased, I do go to school in Columbus, Ohio, but Red Wanting Blue, Columbus natives, should be on the top of your to do list this weekend. The band’s name is frequently plastered across my campus sidewalks in chalk advertisements, but now the popular mid-west rock band will be bringing their act south this Thursday.
But Red Wanting Blue hasn’t just impressed their devoted fan base, they have appeared on the David Letterman show, made Billboard’s Top 10 on the “Heatseekers” chart, and worked with Grammy nominated producer, Jamie Candiloro. Oh, did I also mention they played on VH1’s morning show, “Big Morning Buzz Live”? Clearly these guys are something to be seen.
Their ninth album, From the Vanishing Point, released this January was also their second album under a label name.
The indie-rock band has sold out venues across the nation, even ones usually held for bigger names, and received resounding applause after their Letterman performance, something usually reserved only for huge acts such as U2. Stats like that only point to the fact that Red Wanting Blue is anything but small.
Scott Terry’s deep vocals sound a lot like Brett Scallions from Fuel, and even more he is known to be a tough name to follow concerning live performances. With nine albums and over 2000 shows under their belt, Red Wanting Blue has enough experience to wow crowds this weekend.
Check out Red Wanting Blue at the Vinyl this Thursday. This show is 18 and older, and doors open at 7:30 p.m. while the show begins at 8:30 p.m.
