Pinellas County Property Appraiser Mike Twitty's band is playing Ferg’s big ‘Spring Break of Rock’ concert on Friday

Everclear and Fastball are on the bill, too, but we all know who the real star is.

The ‘90s are back at Ferg’s when radio rock hero Everclear headlines this gig armed with a suitcase of hits, but none as catchy as the 1995 song “Santa Monica.” Sharing the bill is Vinnie Dombroski, lead singer of the band Sponge, who’s a little harder than the rest of the lineup as evidenced by his gravelly vocals on the Detroit band’s hit song “Plowed.” The song makes me want to lace up some Doc Martens and stomp a television that’s playing “Party of Five.”

Opening the show—which also includes “The Way” band Fastball—is Pinellas County Property Appraiser Mike Twitty’s folk rock band, Folk University. The quartet has Twitty (pictured, above left) playing original songs and covers—mainly, ‘60s and ‘70s stuff—alongside his sons and their high school friend. The all-ages show has a bunch of COVID-19 protocols in place including social distancing, hand sanitizing stations and mask requirements.

Spring Break of Rock: Everclear w/Fastball/Vinnie Dombroski/Folk University. Friday, April 2, 6 p.m. $19 & up. Ferg’s Sports Bar, St. Petersburg. ticketweb.com
