If you’re still bummed that you missed Alice Cooper’s annual performance in Tampa Bay this month, you have a chance to catch the most prominent member of his current backing band.

Hurricane Nita Strauss—the band’s shredder—recently broke the glass ceiling of being the first female artist to have a no. 1 hit on the Mediabase Active Rock Chart. You’ll get to hear her live when the 35-year-old and her band tear down Tampa’s Brass Mug on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Doors are at 7 p.m. and admissions starts at $22. The Brass Mug is located at 1450 Skipper Rd. in Tampa.

Supporting them will be Atlanta-based rock duo Like Machines, and local support from rock groups Level the Planet and Kamenar.

UPDATED02/22/22 5:45 a.m. The show is on Wednesday, Feb. 23.
