Up close and personal w/ Mikel from TATE
Last week I decided to pull myself off of the couch and go downtown with the girls to see a show at HOB. The Airborne Toxic Event (TATE) was headlining. I wasn't too familiar with the band. I only knew the song that is overplayed on 92.3, "Sometime Around Midnight."
Arrived at HOB and all I can say is WOW. Airborne was amazing. Their music is so raw, so honest. I couldn't get enough of it.
After the show we went for Margarita's at Zocalo. While we were sitting on the patio getting sloppy, we see Mikel and Steven from the band, walking down fourth street. We invited them over to join us for drinks. Learned from Mikel that "Sometime Around Midnight" is about a girl from Cleveland who broke Mikel's heart. Cleveland rocks, yo!
Next, we ventured over to Flannery's and met up with the rest of the band. Beers, beers and more beers. I think there were some shots thrown in there also. Kind of a blur, but here are a few pictures from the night.
Love the drummer's crazy mustache. He was a trip. If you aren't familiar with TATE, I highly recommend getting some of their music.
