We had a Heatwave!

Last weekend was Tropical Heatwave, WMNF's annual festival where you can hear dozens of bands and dance a lot.
My absolute favorite this year was Amanda Shaw and the Cute Boys -- here's a tiny taste.

We saw a bunch of other bands -- these guys are The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn and they normally play in the subway. They were fun but played too much of the music my grandmother used to sing for my taste.



And here's Graham Parker. He was great though I'm not a fan of the Cuban Club Cantina as a venue.



When we tired of the crowds we walked down to 7th Avenue in Ybor City and had some crepes for dessert.


A good night in Tampa.
