In one of his only significant outings of recent note, Rob made the 2-hour drive up to Memphis on October 17 to see one of his favorite instrumental-jam-jazz-funk bands, Garaj Mahal.
The show went down on Tuesday, October 17, at Hi-Tone. Located nowhere near the famous Beale Street part of town, Hi-Tone looks like a random dive-bar from the outside.Inside it's a relatively small room (capacity around 250-300) with sort of a dive-bar feel, but a nice stage, decent acoustics and a surprisingly good selection of imports and microbrews.
Unfortunately, the show was on a weeknight (Tuesday), so Carley couldn't make it because our babysitter was unavailable. And since Rob had to work at the high school the next morning and didn't get home until after 2:30am, he was feeling pretty out-of-it for a few days. Rob says: "For some reason I don't feel as young as I used to!"
