DEA & Saint album release, Nude Tayne, DJ Nu-Mark top the Sunday live music lineup for Tampa Bay

Fight off the work week with one last show.


✔️= Critic's Pick 

✔️ DEA & Saint T R A P D O O M album launch w/Unicorn Tears Sound System/Wally Clark/Banyans/Mouth Council There’s no way CL could fit the substance from our chat with DEA & Saint onto the print page, but the St. Pete-based hip-hop and rock duo is staging an ambitious album launch show. Jason Feder’s Unicorn Tears Sound System powers the night, and Mouth Council’s Billy Mays III plays emcee before DEA & Saint play the entirety of T R A P D O O M alongside some of the album’s guests. Check out more from our talk here. (The Movement Sanctuary, St. Petersburg) INFO

St. Petersburg duo DEA & Saint talk origins, community, and more before T R A P D O O M launch party

✔️ Id M Theft Able w/Formaldehydra/Think No Think/Blestian/Vallam/Whitey Alabastard There are a couple of Bay area bands headed for Miami’s Psych Fest (see Nude Tayne and Jitters, which are also playing local shows this week), and this “first unofficial official” Psych Fest pre-show going down in the weirdly charming town of Safety Harbor finds a West Coast Psych Fest act (Portland noise-poet Id M Theft Able) joining Lone Star State rock trio Think No Think and a trio of experimental bands inside the quirky SHAMc building. It doesn’t get much weirder on a Sunday night. (Safety Harbor Art and Music Center, Safety Harbor) INFO

Celebration of Life for Ryo Iwabuchi w/Damon Fowler Band Ryo Iwabuchi wasn’t just the mastermind behind slept-on Bay area eatery Kaisen Sushi, but also a father survived by his wife Carolyn Wildman-Iwabuchi and daughter Misa Iwabuchi. This show headlined by Bay area blues giant Damon Fowler is a celebration of life where friends and family have come together to remember a friend and organize a raffle and concert so that Carolyn and Misa can get back on their feet.

Elizabeth A. Baker is ready to challenge listeners on new album, Quadrivium

✔️ Nude Tayne w/Reality Asylum Nude Tayne has been popping up in our periphery lately thanks to composer Nathan Anthony Corder — who played a hand in a new album by St. Pete’s Elizabeth A. Baker — and Career, a band CL profiled in February, which occasionally has Nude Tayne drummer Leo Suarez in its lineup. The Tayne, however, is kicking the can around mighty hard for a summer tour that starts at Miami’s Psych Fest on Saturday, wiggles up through the state of Florida and into Atlanta before wrapping in Tallahassee next Thursday. This Bay area show at Seminole Heights' storied record shop Microgroove finds the group supporting Everyday Business, a brand new, seven-track album of weirdo rock and pop that finds Suarez, Corder, and vocalist Laith Abdel tumbling over just under 20 minutes of splendorous off-time grooves and noise. We’re also excited to see how nerve-wracking it gets when Lauren from local CL favorite Reality Asylum starts to slam around the shop. (Microgroove, Tampa) INFO

Career gets "Structures" to tape, and finally turns in its gripping debut full-length

✔️ Crown and Quill Social Club w/Adam Ness Detroit-originating vocalist and songwriter Adam Ness is the musical element of Crown and Quill’s Sunday night social, where actor Jayson Aaron will speak and organizers will screen Janelle Monae’s Dirty Computer documentary. Ness, who now calls Chicago home, has his roots in gospel, but a 2014 album (#HighPlaces) finds him dipping into R&B, soul, rock and jazz as well. “There’s no feeling like gospel music so I definitely try to bring the spirit in every song,” Ness once said. “The spirit can be translated as funk or soul or just outright nastiness.” (CAVU, Tampa) INFO

Sweet Sounds Of Jamaica w/The Ambassadors/El Periodico Soundsystem You’ve got to hand it to the organizers of the newish Sweet Sounds of Jamaica. The concert series keeps its robust programming rolling with this one featuring Orlando’s El Periodico Soundsystem, which is a collective of Puerto Rican DJs who play underground music — especially punk, ska, rocksteady, reggae, traditional salsa, northern soul, or oi! — all in the hopes of continuing to repair the bridge that divides punk and ska scenes. (Fubar, St. Petersburg) INFO

✔️ Ol’ Dirty Sundays w/DJ Nu-Mark Ol’ Dirty Sundays’ DJ Fader says he likes to go “30 for 30” with fellow ODS resident DJ Casper (that’s alternating 30-minute sets), but we’re willing to bet that he also gets inspired when visitors like Los Angeles DJ Nu-Mark (Jurassic 5) come to rock the ones and twos during Ybor City’s best, no-cover, no-dress-code weekend-wrapping hip-hop, funk, reggae and soul dance party. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
