Hooch and Hive welcomes Tampa indie-pop expat Parrotfish home from Nashville for an already sold-out show, and it’s not the first time the West River venue has played fish tank. The quartet played there in 2019 seemingly years before 2020 happened. St. Petersburg’s The Drain Outs open the Safe and Sound show, which kicks off a weekend of Hooch gigs including one from husky-voiced punk songwriters Jeff Brawer and Buck Sands joined, in part, by cellist Melissa Grady on Saturday.

And if you happen to want to venture out to Hooch later in the week, try Wednesday’s when DJ Cub brings his new weekly, “The Buzz” to the spot and plays new wave, synth pop and post punk (think New Order, Joy Division and Talk Talk) all while the venue offers good vegan food specials, too. More information on all the shows is available via Hooch and Hive’s Facebook page.
