Denzel Curry’s Tampa show at Orpheum in Ybor City should not be slept on

The Carol City rapper is a highlight of 2018’s hip-hop calendar.


There’s plenty of hip-hop on the fall concert calendar, but Denzel Curry is far better than all the other lil Soundcloud rappers out there. The Florida native’s 2018 album, TA13OO, will likely land on a lot of year-end best-of lists, and this could be the last time you see the 23-year-old in a room this small again.

Denzel Curry. Mon. Oct. 15, 7 p.m. $25-$50. Orpheum, Ybor City.
