I finally got to catch a live ZED show at Victory Lounge in Seattle on July 20th, and they did not disappoint! Had a great time hanging with the guys, and actually caught myself playing ‘air drums’ during The River. The venue was small, but the band was well received by those who stayed late enough to catch the show (there were 2 supporting acts, Trashcan Wizard and Greenriver Thrillers).

The true test of any band is the ability to deliver in a live setting – and I am here to tell you that ZED is the real deal! I can’t wait until the next time they’re in town. If you get a chance to see ZED perform live, don’t miss it!

It doesn’t need to be a lengthy essay or literary achievement, just a few words that tells readers how much you like the record, and that it rocks.
