Electra Barakos, frontwoman of Electra, came on stage pumped up and ready to dance. The House of Blues was full of a people ranging in age but everyone was having a great time. It was easy to tell just as the projector screen rose to reveal the band that they were met by some die hard fans. The entire front row was singing along to every song and many were rocking their very own Electra merchandise. Electra never stopped moving, jumping up and down she was full of energy and was feeding off the energy of the crowd.
A few songs in Electra made the executive decision, not to anyone’s disapproval, that everyone needed to start dancing. To help with this she began tossing out her very own Electra tambourines to members of the crowd. After taking the chance to jump off the stage and onto the barricade to get even closer to her adoring fans, Electra made a huge announcement that she was going back home to Greece to be a part of The Voice over there. The crowd wished her good luck on her adventures before she introduced her brother Andy Barakuda to play a brand new song. Everyone in the crowd had a great time and was happy to be there, it was evident that people really were there to enjoy the music. While there was plenty of jumping around and dancing there was no pushing or shoving that you so often find at pop rock shows like this. No one wanted to pull any attention away from the main act on stage and with the way Electra filled up the room they wouldn’t have been able to even if they tried.

The Honda Civic Tour stopped in Minneapolis on Halloween. We covered the show and saw "Peter pan, tinker bell and the lost boys" along with "the gothli's" and "villains". Every band member of the three bands that performed dressed up and even some of the crowd did! The costumes made the show a bit more lively, since you were watching all of these characters sings some of your favorite songs!
Check out some pictures we got.
