Cleveland band And Then Came Human is a little bit Ween, a little bit Flight of the Conchords, a little bit “Lost in Space.” That’s how I’d describe it, anyway.

Friends Mike Sopko and Ryan Scott—who play close to 200 shows a year—describe their band as an “indie/ jazz-rock/ funk/experimental duo adept at rearranging and reinterpreting a wide variety of popular music, performed in DJ-like fashion with seamless improvised transitions between songs.”

New World Brewery—which is hosting an album release show for Jordan Esker & the Hundred Percent in its music hall—has relaxed it’s COVID-19 protocols a little, and that means masks aren’t required for this no cover outdoor show. Though, if you haven’t gotten vaxxed, it’s still best if you wear one in general. Hold on, why haven’t you gotten vaxxed yet?

And Then Came Humans. Friday, June 11, 7:30 p.m. No cover. New World Brewery, Tampa.
