Third Eye Blind bring stunning performance to Indy\’s Egyptian Room

After taking some time away from the spotlight, Third Eye Blind has returned to the stage with force. Their time away has taken nothing away from their performance and their ability to capture our attention as they’ve embarked on a U.S. tour for The House of Blues’ 20th anniversary. In Indianapolis, opening band, Hydra Melody, brought a spectacular and enthusiastic start to the show. Their music had a smooth yet powerful feel to it and the passion they had showed through in their performance. Originating in San Antonio, Texas, this five member band has a striking, unique and upbeat alternative rock sound. Look for them to catch fire soon as they have everything it takes.

[lg_slideshow folder=\”2013/HOB 20th Anniversary feat. Third Eye Blind/Third Eye Blind/\”] The stage was set with intricate lighting, fog machines and strobes. They opened with one of their older hits, “Graduate”, which was a great lead in to their nearly hour long set. During their set, they played three songs set to premiere on their upcoming 2014 album. Finishing up their set with their biggest hit, “Semi Charmed Life”, was a good call as it definitely finished the show on a high note. They gave an excellent performance, and were well worth seeing. -Natasha Nicewanger
