Downtown Tampa’s free monthly concert series comes into the new year swinging on Thursday, Jan. 5 when it lands back at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.

Powerhouse Americana-blues and pop songwriter Ashley Smith headlines along with her band The Random Occurrence (collectively known as “Astro”). Broward-based songwriter Josh Gluck (his “To The Light” single would play well for the blues lovers at Skipper’s Smokehouse) rocks the middle of the lineup anchored by Tampa beat fanatic and hip-hop scene mainstay Slopfunkdust.

There's no cover for the free, pet and family-friendly monthly, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m.
