It’s been 20 years since Far released its second major-label LP (Water & Solutions), but the Northern California post-hardcore band’s frontman Jonah Matranga is on the road and playing the effort — which saw Far carving out its own place in a then-crowded alternative-metal space — in full. Orlando post-pop group The Pauses opens this record-shop gig alongside Tampa punk band Awkward Age, and there are only 60 spots available, so buy your ticket in advance.
Jonah Matranga w/The Pauses/Awkward Age. Fri. Aug. 17, 7 p.m. $15. 4906 N Florida Ave. Microgroove, Tampa. ticketfly.com.
