Sorry Barb
Good lord, Tampa band Sorry Barb’s April single “Catholic Schmatholic” is a hilarious skewering of tithing that will bite you in the ass (you know, just like that priest the Vatican tried to cover up).

The song will also leave you dancing in folk-pop euphoria, which bodes well for anyone at The Bricks in Ybor City on Saturday, May 14 when the band plays a free show for Emo Night Tampa, which has been increasingly active this year as it emerges from the pandemic.
Blonde Gentlemen and Spirit and the Cosmic Hart play support.
