There is a new band in town . . . REPEAT . . . There Is A New Band In Town (okay, picture a guy on a megaphone right now saying this) . . . and they are not messing around! I have always dreamt about music like this. Never in my wildest imagination did I ever think this would come true. This band is just too cool.
Eletro Mehteran played tonight, for their second time ever. This well rehearsed, complicated, energy driven, off the wall, brilliant piece of arrangement of music was something to not only listen too, but to see. As advertised by the Tonic Room where they played this evening, EM is a "Balkan-Influenced Progressive Stylings of Epic Proportion". If you think that is a mouth full, the band surpasses that.
Here are the members of the band as headlined on their Facebook "About" page . . .
Now, this was pretty cool. I am an engineer by trade, both service and manufacturing. As an industrial engineer (have other degrees too) specializing in Quality, I jumped up and down with joy when the band handed out a survey. Too cool, like Doctor Who bow ties and fezzes.
Okay, I started and ended with the headline band, Electro Mehteran. I had to. It was just that good. Here are some photos of the neighborhood surrounding The Tonic Room, of my friends, and of the Tonic Room. I hope you enjoy these too . . .
