Strange Design @ Crowbar, Tampa, FL

Say what you will about cover and tribute bands, but this show was well worth the $7 cover charge. They were remarkably tight and even busted out the trampolines and vacuum - good cheese. Strawberry Shortcake drove down from Ocala and made it an even bigger ginger party with her and Broseph in the mix. Perhaps the most interesting part of the night was the drive home. We caught a ride with some friends - one of which had picked up two girls from the bar and was giving them a ride home. I don't think they were phishheads - they were young twenty something budding hipsters, but the clean, grad school type. One was black, not Barack Obama burnt siena either, darkness. She proceeded to tell us - while crammed into the back of a Pathfinder sandwiched between her white friend and two white guys - that she "really likes the vanilla," but most recently "had been tasting the cinnamon." I wish I had gotten a pic of her, but it's probably best I didn't.
