Miami Music Week residuals are finding their way to Tampa Bay on Friday, April 5, and Detroit scene staple Rick Wade (aka Big Daddy Rick, Dr. Low-Tech) is bringing his no-frills approach to house music to a St. Petersburg warehouse show at Morph that gets started early (a trio of DJs will play open-air sets starting at 6 p.m.) before Wade and Back Door Records’ Dsum run the party until 4 a.m.. You'll want to buy tickets for this one via residentadvisor.net.
While the Bootz N Catz crew is staging a Sunday, April 7 anniversary party, the only thing that might suck about it is that attendance there means you’re most likely going to miss a Shephard's Clearwater Beach set from Guatemalan-born dance music star Carnage, who is coming off of a mental health-related four-month hiatus from touring. GRAVEDGR, an unknown producer who may be Datsik or DrewFilament depending on which online threads you lurk, opens the show. Tickets are available via eventbrite.com.
