It’s been five years since the Dead Kennedys played a Tampa Bay gig, but it’s finally headed back this weekend for a Saturday show at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg.

Back then, we weren’t as aware of just how close to home “Nazi Punks Fuck Off!” would end up hitting, and while original lead singer Jello Biafra won’t be present to howl out the punkery of four studio albums, other members will.

Joining in are horror punk band Nekromantix and New Jersey punk trio The Venomous Pinks.
