Tropical Heatwave – Tampa – May 14th, 2011

by Nicole Lee

Tropical Heatwave – Tampa – May 14th, 2011 Welcome to Saturday night in Ybor City, Florida, home to WMNF’s Tropical Heatwave. A night of live music, drinks, dancing and pretty much the most fun a warm May evening has to offer. The list of bands scattered throughout the city was extensive but our list included Sleep Vikings (from Tampa!!), Hymn For Her, Those Darlins’, Cracker, Peelander-Z and Bright Light Social Hour.

We were hoping to see Kaleigh Baker, but she cancelled last second due to food poisoning. Overall it was one of the best “shows” I’ve seen. The diverse crowd, the beer, drink specials, corner-of-the-street-vendor-nomz and amazing music keeps WMNF putting this show on year after year after year- and I hope they never stop.

Notes: All photos were taken with my iPhone4. While I love taking high quality dSLR photos with Dante (my camera), when I’m rocking out and drinking that much I can’t afford to have that much equipment on my person. Either way, hope you enjoy. :)
