Last summer, Brooklyn alternative group Bad Luck released Summer Of Pain, an album with themes similar to Pet Sounds, which the group is ready to share with Tampa fans next week.

According to the band, the record is “a bridge between childhood ambition and adult realism by exploring the underlying tension of romanticism in our modern world.” You know, heartache, setbacks, but also some of the good moments.

Bad Luck played Crowbar literally weeks before the world went into lockdown mode, and one pandemic later, fans will reconvene in the same location with a lot less fear and a lot more new music to celebrate.  Opening for Bad Luck are punk groups Dollar Signs and Taking Meds.
