Electric Eye: Make-Outs Abound at Hundred Waters

It got steamy at the Tractor Tavern.

Hundred Waters is for lovers, or at least that’s what all the couples making out in the crowd at the show last Wednesday tells me. It makes sense for Hundred Waters’ glistening, dream-like dance tracks—more suited for a make out sesh than shaking it. Austin Santiago, Do206’s new GM, put together a stellar lineup, with locals Youryoungbody warming the crowd as the opening act and LA-based Phantoms as second headliners. The Red Bull sponsored event brought out some of the Seattle music scene’s royalty, with Hollis Wong-Wear (The Flavr Blue, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) and her boyfriend Jeff Lawrence (dj100proof), Reed Juenger and Tom Eddy of Beat Connection and Cuff Lynx all in attendance.
