I am highly biased here, but last nights TAMMIES ceremony was, IMHO, fantastic.
Ryanhood had most of the girls (and some of the guys) swooning with their fantastic acoustic rock, and Tucson Music Hall of Famer Ernie Menehune—age 84—put on a fantastic show. He's one of my new heroes. But my fave moment of the night was toward the end, when a quasi-mosh put (thankfully sans actual moshing) gathered, 25 strong, heads bobbing, in front of the Rialto stage to honor Mostly Bears.
After that, Sean the Web Dude and Monica the All-Star Left Fielder headed to Congress' TAMMIES afterparty, where we danced (including a twirl with the ever-fabulous Linda Ray) to the Wyatts and Tom Walbank.
One too many martinis and a stop at Grill later, I was home, at 1:45 a.m. On a work night.
I am too old for this crap.
Nonetheless, the evening was a blast. If you have any TAMMIES thoughts or pics or whatever to share, comment or drop me a line.
