Concert review: Jukebox the Ghost at Crowbar, Ybor City (with photos)

They played a lot of new material and plenty of crowd favorites, but they also threw in some ridiculously cool covers. After marveling at how the weather is so much warmer here than it is back home, they helped us get into the holiday spirit with a cover of "What's This?" from The Nightmare Before Christmas. And, as has become a tradition, they wrapped up the show by inviting all the members of the two openers, Meligrove Band and Dynamite Walls, up to the stage for a tambourine-filled cover of The Cure's "Head on the Door."
