Tampa post-punkers will rejoice at yet another revival show when Chameleons Vox (The Chameleons frontman Mark Burgess playing under a tweaked name) headlines a stacked lineup on November 5 at Crowbar. Theatre of Hate is on the bill as well as former Gene Loves Jezebel frontman Jay Aston. Aston is said to be playing only solo stuff, but let’s pray to the ghost of Monday nights at the Castle that he treats the crowd to “Desire.”

The Jezebel songs might cause a sour note for Aston because he and his twin brother/Gene Loves Jezebel co-founder Michael Aston have been in a pretty sticky legal battle. Michael gets to tour with the official band name while Jay has to clarify it’s his outfit, therefore, using “Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel.”

DJ Nemesis spins the dark stuff before, after and in-between bands. Tampa’s Hi-Beam opens the show

Chameleons Vox w/Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel/Hi-Beam/DJ Nemesis. Tues. Nov. 5, 7 p.m. $20-$25. Crowbar, Ybor City. eventbrite.com.
