Tampa’s most lovable singer-songwriter is back at New World for the first time in, well, we really can’t remember because who knows what year it is anyways. But no matter what year it is, Mitchell’s twangy comical storytelling rock and roll is the medicine for what ails us. Personal favorite “Satan Moved to Nashville” describes Lucifer leaving Hollywood and taking country music under his evil sellout wings.

It’s Mitchell’s first gig since the pandemic and his first one at the new New World in Sulphur Springs. Two sets will be filled with “...pretty much the classics and a few newer songs and maybe, just maybe, one brand new song if I'm feeling up to it,” Mitchell told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay.

New World is at 25% capacity and you can’t just go up to the bar to order a drink, sitting anywhere you please. Get there early, grab a table, and enjoy yourself with a free Sunday show.

Crash Mitchell. Sunday, April 25, 5:30 p.m. Free. New World Brewery, Tampa.
