Five Eight—an indie-rock favorite—last played across the bridge at The Bends in St. Petersburg. Going since the late-’80s, the four-piece was the subject of a 2020 documentary “Weirdo: The Story of Five Eight” (see a companion doc below).
Pohgoh drummer and New Granada head Keith Ulrey even canceled his label’s annual Xmas night show as everything—well, in Florida at least—was starting to open back up. Ulrey joins his wife vocalist Susie Ulrey in the lineup along with Matt Slate and Brian Roberts, who’ve been playing on and off since ‘94.
The show is limited-capacity so advanced tickets to see Five Eight and Pohgoh at Crowbar in Ybor City, Florida on Friday, Aug. 6—on sale now for $18 with no fees—are probably a good idea. Masks are recommended.
