TVD Live Shots: Converge, Cloud Nothings, Djunah at House of Vans, 8/24

The masses came out for the final show of the Vans House Parties at House of Vans this summer, curated by heavy hitters Converge. With the line to get in wrapping around the block, it was easy to recognize that this summer concert series was going to end with a bang.

Djunah was the first to hit the stage, a two-piece rock band hailing from Chicago. The crowd was watching intently, bopping their heads along with the melodies. It was pretty chill during this set, the crowd presumably saving up all their energy for the headliner. This didn’t stop Djunah from delivering an action packed set that felt like the stage was filled with multiple musicians. Their debut album is due to be released in November.

Cloud Nothings, the genre bending rock band from Ohio, came up next. Switching between slower indie rock songs, to amped up punk songs, the crowd bounced along rhythmically. Even the concertgoers sitting on the skate ramps were bopping along to the music. They were successful in getting the crowd ready for Converge.

As soon as the first note hit, the crowd for Converge was insane. There was an instant mosh pit, people were crowd surfing onto the stage, and hardly any phones were in sight. Even during their slower songs, the energy in the whole building did not turn down in the slightest. Water bottles were being flung in the air to combat the humidity the smashing bodies were producing.

Playing a selection of hits from their over 25-year-old discography, they proved why they were the correct choice to close out this concert series. With fans screaming lyrics along with front man Jacob Bannon, there was no time for rest during this show stopping closer.
