Saturday night during Tampa Am weekend is always the night for the huge party/ show. This year’s party was extra big considering it was the 20-Year Anniversary Party.When the evening starts off with antics from the “Senator”…things are bound to get epic. Cuates, The Shrine, Killer Mike and Souls of Mischief all provided killer sounds and entertainment all night long, while the staff at CZAR kept the drinks flowing. – Nicks

Keith Morris is a punk rock legend, and needs no introduction. Keith’s latest band OFF! played the State Theatre in St. Pete last weekend, and our friend Zac Tomlinson was there to snap some sick photos! Feral Babies, Cerebral Ballzy, & Retox opened and Keith also did a little “Meet & Greet” at Daddy Kool Records before the show. Check out the video below for Crawl off of OFF!’s First Four EP’s featuring 2010 Thrasher Magazine “Skater of the Year”, Leo Romero. Skateboarding and Punk Rock…like Ebony & Ivory.

If you find yourself in Austin, Texas for SXSW in March, you should be slapped if you miss this:
Tonight is BAAMO’s “One For The Road”, which is the send-off party for Tampa Bay bands headed to the SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas in March. Confirmed bands for “One For The Road” are: The Beauvilles; Have Gun, Will Travel; The Human Condition; Poetry ‘n Lotion; Rebekah Pulley & The Reluctant Prophets; Ronny Elliott. Saturday, February 26th, 7 pm @ Dave’s Aqua Lounge. 100% of your suggested $10 donation goes to the bands to cover their travel expenses to and from Austin. Support local music!
Working-Class Hero Tim Barry is playing with two of Gainesville, Florida’s finest, Greenland Is Melting and Grabass Charlestons, tonight at The Orpheum in Ybor. I hope they have plenty of cold tall boys and warm whiskey on hand. Doors are at 8 pm and you can purchase your tickets right here.
Flogging Molly is playing at The Ritz Ybor tonight and after the show, The Bricks is hosting the Flogging Molly “Unofficial” After Party. Matt Hensley, Flogging Molly’s accordion player, also happens to be one of the most influential street skateboarders of all time…which gives me an idea for this week’s “Time Capsule Thursdays”.
20 Bands, 2 Nights, 2 Venues! This Friday and Saturday, February 4th and 5th, at Fubar Downtown and The Local 662. This is an incredible opportunity to come out and experience some of the amazing local music we have here in the Tampa Bay area. All of this is only $7, that’s right, $7 for both nights and both venues! Unless you are under 21, then it’s $10. Take a look at the lineups and times here.
Get on over to The Local 662 in downtown St. Petersburg tonight for some local punk rock and ska. Tampa’s Shakemode, St. Pete’s O.G. ska band Rude Squad, and Marco Island’s Sheffield Crew are going to put on one hell of a party for you. 21 and over is $6.00 and under 21 is $9.00.
Friday night at New World Brewery, Matt Butcher and The Revolvers come in from Orlando to play a show. Clearwater’s Al Torchia and The Tattered Saints and Atlanta’s Young Goodman Brown get the show started. The show is 21 & up and tickets are $7 and are available at the door.
Tomorrow night, Chi-Town’s own Joan of Arc (Tim Kinsella, ex. Cap N’ Jazz) and Pillars & Tounges hookup with Tampa’s Zillionaire for a Thursday night show at New World Brewery. Tickets are available at Daddy Kool Records, Mojo Books & Music, www.ticketweb.com, or at New World Brewery. Tim Kinsella will also be doing a solo acoustic set at Mojo Books & Music in Tampa at about 5 pm.
Get on over to Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe tonight for Woody Pines! I saw these guys the last time they played Ella’s and they were fantastic! Woody Pines is out of Ashville, North Carolina, although frontman, Woody, spent some time totally immersed in the music scene in New Orleans. When Woody Pines is puttin’ down that viper jazz, swinging ragtime, and country blues sound, you can feel not just the music, but the culture as well. So, slide on over to the bar, get yourself a shot of whiskey and slip back into a simpler time in American life. Oh, and the show is FREE! Check all of the details here.
Well, apparently tonight is the night for live music in Tampa Bay! Have Gun Will Travel, Will Quinlan and The Diviners, Whiskey Gentry, and Pete Stein of Truckstop Coffee are playing at the New World Brewery. This is a serious lineup of local hard-hitters right here! Tickets are available at the door for $8! Best damn 8 dollars you will ever spend!
