Tampa's fondness for its guava trees gave birth to this festival that is celebrated just before Halloween each year. An all-day event, it focuses on mythical Mama Guava who is out to take the "bore" out of Ybor City with this wild street party. The celebration salutes children's costumes during the day, then after dark, costumed revelers keep the party going well into the wee hours. A highlight of the night is the early-evening Mama Guava Stumble Parade. Admission: Family Funfest USD5, Night Of Costumed Revelry USD15.
I knew I was in for something special with the great lineup
from 98rock's Ronnie Michaels at the wheel,but I had no idea it would be so good.
10 sec Drop warmed up posin as the hired hands.
Sinder flipped the switch,and
the place went nuts,all 20 of us!It was almost a private show in an alley.
Well now,I expected the Performers to be bummed and the mood to be a lil layed back,but instead they Gave it
All and never looked back.
We Roared with delight.
After layin down a blistering
set,the mood swung around to full on,as 10 sec Drop was not to be undone by the local talent.
The gauntlet was picked up and the tension hung in the air,as we clung to the rail like giddy schoolgirls on their way to the Fair.
10 sec drop cooked it down holding nothing back,the 3 dollar show was far more than payed for!!!!
A slow grin now slides across my ugly mug as I tick off the remaining bands in my head I audibly giggle.
10 years was up next,and the crowd started to grow as the air became charged with the
smell of power.
They reminded me quite a bit of early Tool.Very good, dont think they were any better than the prior performances though.

Finally maybe I can get out of this Mosh Pit that keeps erupting around me,but no
SES isnt backing up either!
Now the "alley"is full front to back and Im just about exhausted.
All I can say is wow.
Saliva Ive seen before
didnt stay I wore my shoes out
I licked my wounds and parted with a full belly of precious metals.
This was the most enjoyable show Ive been to since the Black-Sabbath reunion.
