The night began with all of us “certified MVMT junkies” relaxing like royalty in the downstairs bar and lounge area of The Attic in downtown Ybor City in Tampa, FL. The Attic is a perfect name for this venue. Lit darkly and featuring large visible silver pipes through the brick structure, chandeliers are hung above the stage to give the setting a touch of class. Side note – they have the best beer selection.
A large group of us were out in full force to make the two-night event a complete sell-out and total success. As we went our separate ways before the show began and the openers Signal Fire started to hit the stage, The Movement members strolled to greet our familiar faces, showing that they are always making the time to speak to their devoted fans.
Opening for The Movement, Signal Fire (who have been on my radar for quite some time) delivered a great set and put us all in the right mind set. I was ecstatic to see them in such an intimate setting. The Signal Fire guys chilled with us after their set as we prepared for the main attraction. Then it happened. The Movement’s classic hit “Siren” started and this second floor small loft began shaking like a turbulent plane. Next up was one of my favorites, “Rescue”. As if it wasn’t already raging enough, midway through their set they dropped their latest release, a single called “Cool Me Down”. Between Josh’s “One of a Kind” voice, Gary’s clean and precise banging, Ross’s surgeon like attention to detail or Jay’s slick and thick bass lines, this band never disappoints and they bring it every single time. Needless to say we were left with our “jaws on the floor like a shark elevator”. That’s just The Movement Vibe. Catch the guys in a city near you on their spring tour!
