It’s a monumental achievement to make it 10 years in anything, let alone the restaurant business, and while this two-day party celebrates Ella’s, it also feels like a straight up reunion of some of the best and still beloved bands that’ve grown up alongside the Seminole Heights eatery. The highlight is obviously a reunion from rabble rousing, harmonica-driven, sweaty rock and roll band Nervous Turkey (playing Sunday), but Saturday’s lineup is a veritable Tampa Bay Americana, rock and soul superbill. This party is free to attend, and proceeds from the bar sales will partially benefit Urban Art Attack.

Ella’s 10-year anniversary w/Nervous Turkey/Burke Bros/Will Quinlan & the Holy Slow Train/Poetry N Lotion/The Woolly Bushmen/Little Sheeba & the Shamans/Jim Morey Band/Acho Brother/The Holy Terror/The Hummingbirds. Sat.-Sun. Sept. 7-Sept. 8, No cover. Ella's Americana Folk Art Café, Tampa. Brokenmoldentertainment.com.
