Tantric at Newby's Memphis 06/19/08

I finally figured out what Myspace is for. Its for being able to find an impromptu bulletin about a band playing in town. I logged into Myspace on Thursday morning and found a bulletin posted by Newby's Memphis about  a band playing that night.

I was unprepared to snap shots of the action but when you're that close to the band.... my cell phone did a decent enough job.

Hugo decided some "Journey" was appropriate for the evening. At one point I remember him saying he was going to do shots and sing Journey the rest of the night. Luckily for the crowd he went back to Tantric tunes after just one song.

At the end of the show Hugo decided what the hell and got the entire crowd on stage with the band while they played "Breakdown". A few of us stayed on the ground level but only because we were rapidly snapping shots of this rare event as it was unfolding.

It was definitely one of the best audience experiences that I have ever seen at a show in town. Thanks Myspace; I got some random excitement for once during the week.
