Synrgy - The Sail Inn - 1/17/14

Oregon-based reggae five-piece Synrgy played Tempe's Sail Inn on Friday night, along with locals Kush County and Vegas-based Lady Reiko and the Sin City Prophets. The entire show was played on the Sail Inn's indoor stage, which generally would be a bad thing. (Even jovial Synrgy fron man Brian Zach called having to play indoors "a bummer" in the days leading up to the show.)

But with island music coming from all directions, all problems of venue were easily forgotten as the crowd swayed to the chill tones of the three acts. With the tie-dye apparel tent set up in the corner, Tempe Town Lake in sight, and a bar area that rapidly became as humid as an island night, the show almost began to feel like it was part of a tropical vacation.
