Columbia City Theatre; Seattle, WA
Written by Kristen Schell
Sex appeal, drums that give you chills, and crisp vocals. Night Argent live is an entirely different experience than say… listening to their EP via Spotify, with a bottle of wine and two cats, which is what I did before going to their show at Columbia Theater in Seattle, WA.
Not only does the band have a clean performance, Night Argent also handled their sound check perfectly – and, I must admit, it is flawless. No mic-squeaks or pitchy vocals, they are basically perfection.
The first song of their set was amazing, all thanks to their heartthrob drummer, Zac Burrell. Drums pounding, full of emotion, yet equally steady and confident. It immediately drew doting fans to the front. The set included the cleanest vocals and guitar riffs I’ve heard in a while and it’s safe to say Night Argent has their stage performance down to a T!
The highlight of the night was when Night Argent circled around the drums at center stage. BOOM BOOM, I immediately find myself inching to the front of the stage. All of the band members begin beating the drums and explode out right into their hit “Widowmaker,” off their self-titled EP!
Talk about a show that ends with every fan pressed up against the stage, props to Night Argent! While frontman Chase Manhattan was a bit jumpy (not in a bad way – just hard to get a good IG pic in all honesty), I loved the overall vibe of the show! I highly recommend you check out their latest EP, Night Argent available on Spotify here. I also suggest you look out for their tour dates… or at least hang a band photo on the wall because these guys are hot, in every sense of the word!
