Drag The River’s Jon Snodgrass makes his Tampa Hooch and Hive debut

Jason Guy Smiley opens the show.


Tampa has always been good to Jon Snodgrass (listen to Drag The River, Scorpios and Armchair Martian if you’re among the uninitiated). The goofy, veteran Americana songsmith was a regular at New World Brewery, but he feels like he’s kinda-sorted starting all over again since the beloved Ybor City venue is currently unavailable as it re-locates to Sulphur Springs.

On Wednesday he arrives at a spot that’s new to him (Hooch and Hive, which is quickly becoming an essential spot for small shows), still supporting a 2016 7-inch, “1-2-3-4/Perfect Match,” and while Snodgrass is an old friend, we’re excited to see if he also plays anything from Scorpios’ 2017 album, Scorpios Too.

Gainesville’s pineapple-punk king, Jason Guy Smiley, opens this essential Wednesday-night gig.
