8-19-12 Minglewood Show Recap

This past Sunday, the weather was absolutely beautiful. We normally schedule our dead-of-summer show indoors because of the heat-- who would've expected temps in the 80s in August in Memphis?

Didn't matter. We still got our rock and our romp on, and it was awesome.

Our long-time sponsor, Whole Foods, stepped it up a notch by providing a staffed spread of free, fresh and healthy goodness:

YoLo graciously provided free frozen yogurt in the parking lot from their swank Airstream:

First up was Darien Clea. You ever walk up to a live act and you're mesmerized by the voice you're hearing? It happened at this show. What a beautiful sound! I hear she's working on a new record-can't wait to hear more from this woman.

Next up was the trance/electronic emo sound of Fast Planet. These guys were fun to watch, and the aural landscapes were hypnotic.

This dude loved it all so much he wanted us all to see his belly:

As an intermission, we had a cool puppet show by Muley the Mule:

This guy was very entertained:

Last up was Tiger High. One of the best bands in Memphis right now. Amazingly catchy, intelligent power pop, played with ferocity. The Vest brothers have rocked RnR before with other projects, but it was so good to finally hear Tiger High at a RnR!

Thanks to the folks at Minglewood Hall for hosting us again. Thanks as always to our two longest sponsors, Central BBQ and Whole Foods. They really make our shows better. And special thanks to the Mike Curb Institute for sponsoring this show. All of these folks help us keep RnR as the best afternoon of entertainment you can get in town for $5.

Also thanks to our volunteers who help us pull all off. You guys rule!

Next show is September 29th at the Mid-South Corn Maze-- always a great venue for us.  Seeya then!
