We don't normally work show announcements into our daily posting, but this morning Jannus Live scored a couple that we're really stoked on.

The first one happens in the spring when Dashboard Confessional returns to Tampa Bay with Philly-based punk-rock lovers Beach Slang in tow for a show at Jannus Live on March 24. D/C last played the area in February (read our review here), and we just caught up with Beach Slang in October for Big Pre-Fest in Little Ybor. Get details on that show here. And if you missed it, Dashboard is releasing a new LP in February — listen to "We Fight" via YouTube.

The other big Jannus announce finds high energy UK rock and roll monsters Royal Blood playing the courtyard on June 12 in support of its amped-up 2017 album How Did We Get So Dark? See pics of the band playing ACL here. More info on the show here. Listen to that record below.
