Ahhh … the last weekend of summer

A long week at the office turned ugly and our Friday night turned into a late-night office party (if one could call it that). Krishen, Jeff, and I stayed until 12:30am working on numerous issues that evolved over the week. It was not all work though – we took breaks playing “Name that artist” … I never was good at that game, but I managed to get Jeff back with some great Canadian artists.
Saturday we were back at it again, with breakfast and lunch provided, we worked a sixth 9+ hour day this week. But I think we managed to get things ready for Tuesday … now the weekend was finally here. So, with my cousin’s taking Melissa out for a ‘girls night out’ … I headed out with the boys.
Ybor city is just south of Tampa and known for their club scene. We went to Santoro’s Amphitheater to see UK Breakbeat DJ/Producer group Hybrid (more here). The club was like nothing I have been too back home. More lights, more lazers, and more people. The 3 floor dance club could house 1000 people (girls 18+ and guys 21+). They had several shows over the evening featuring a local dance group and a fire-breather called “The Human Volcano”. The music was loud, the drinks expensive, and the rotating dancing was hopping. Hybrid finally made it on stage by around 1:30am and put on an incredible 2 hour hour show. By 3:30am we were shown the door and directed down the street by cops on horses … by 4:30 I was home in bed with only slight hearing problems.
For those interested, Krishen pointed out that you can listen to Hybrids’ Saturday night set here.
