Tampa Bay’s live music calendar is still recovering from an ongoing pandemic that’s crippled the livelihoods of touring musicians and independent venue owners who used to host them night in and night out. Locals are carrying the scene as it tries to revive itself, but live music needs your help. Sign up to #SaveOurStages, stay home if you’re feeling sick, wear your mask, and get vaccinated if you’re able. Follow the rules wherever you go.
