Once Miami band House of I now calls Tampa home and that means we get to see its ‘90s-reminiscent indie-rock on a regular basis. Check out the four-piece’s new video “Shame” to hear Dinosaur Jr.-like riffs but with a much bigger vocal range than J Mascis (no hate mail, I love the gray-haired singer).
This gig is the first for alt-rockers Viewers Like You since pre-pandemic, with Tyler Coy, aka Panda Paws, filling in for bassist Mark Slevak then switching to keys when Slevak returns from new dad duty. “Loud, gay, harp music”—now with guitars—from His Hem rounds out the bill at this the free West River concert. Masks are recommended, don’t let the delta get you.
House of I/Viewers Like You/His Hem. Friday, Aug. 27, 8 p.m. Free. Hooch and Hive, Tampa. INFO
