Off With Their Heads has been singing pop-punk anthems about hope and loss with Tampa Bay fans for what feels like forever, and on this 20th anniversary tour the Minneapolis band takes it back to the roots with a sweaty set at a Seminole DIY show haven that’s a tattoo shop by day.

The insane icing on the cake for this one, however, is a revival of Americana songwriter Shae Krispinsky’s Purr Purr Purr cat rap project, plus a “storytellers set” with Prince Midnight, who’s better known as the metal guy who made a guitar out of his uncle’s skeleton.

Tickets to see Off With Their Heads at Lucky You Tattoo in St. Petersburg on Wednesday, Jan. 25 are still available for $15.
