With great excitement, Bungalow Entertainment presents Stop Making Sense: A Tribute to Talking Heads. This show, at The Crowbar in Ybor City on Saturday, October 13th, will feature Row Jomah joined by artists and musicians from a few bands in the local area. Also included in this Halloween-ish affair will be Future Vintage Band, Reality Asylum, DJ SugarBear, and Blassafrass. Make your plans now for one of the most innovative, out of the box ’80s Halloween theme parties in town — costumes, ’80s music, ghoulish fun, and a Crowbar jam-packed with some of Tampa’s very best musical family!

Row Jomah is a madcap consisting of musicians from Clearwater with two studio albums and a live release to their credit. Row Jomah are: Dylan Chee-A-Tow, drums, percussion; Austin Llewellyn, keyboards, piano; Joe Roma, vocals, acoustic guitar; and Melbourne Walsh, electric guitar.

For years, several Talking Heads songs have made their way into Row Jomah setlists. Last March, at Dunedin Brewery Spring Beer Jam, the band first presented “Stop Making Sense.” It was an outstanding success; the band was augmented with three excellent musicians: Miss Robyn Alleman (Holey Miss Holey), vocals; Dave Gerulat (Shoeless Soul), vocals, percussion; and Vinny Svoboda (Displace), bass. They repeated the set recently at WMNF’s US Festival tribute and look forward to this round three of great ’80s vibes and music.

Future Vintage are a full-on dance party disguised as a jamtronic trio. The St. Petersburg band serves up a delicious blend of electronica, disco, funk, rock and more, full of great original material and well-chosen covers. Future Vintage are: Matt Giancola, keyboards, guitar, vocals; Trevor McDannel, bass, synth bass; and Eric Layana, drums, electronic drum pad.

Reality Asylum will send your brain back to the ’80s as well. Think Devo, The Flying Lizards and lots of punkish new wave, and you’ve got Reality Ayslum. Their synth-punk has electrified crowds all over the area. Reality Asylum are: Lauren Elizabeth, vocals; Seth Gilbert, drums; and Ricky Seebach, analog synths, digital hardware.

Andrew M. Blass, a.k.a “Blassafrass,” is a Tampa native “bass maker,” vinyl turntableist, selector, and post-processor producer [collector + practice (dedication * sacrifice) = selector]. Blass is one half of the local vinyl duo the Savage Scratch Kids and is an outspoken proponent of open minds, free love, and the low-end.

DJ SugarBear will also be in the house (or out in the beer garden), spinning “a blend of new wave/no wave electronic darkness for you to get wild to.”

Grab your tickets early, and get those costumes ready. It’s party time! Doors open at 9 pm. Ticketsare $10 in advance, $15 dos.
