Keys N Krates, Hot Water Music among Tampa Bay's Sunday live music options

It's like a warm-up for next weekend.


✔️ = Critic's Pick

Keys N Krates Cura, the new album from Canadian livetronic outfit Keys N Krates, was released in February and road-tested over Spring Break, so expect the set to be heated when the Dim Mak signees bring the nine-track LP to Clearwater Beach. “We wanted the framework and constrictions of this vibe to allow us to float between being able to make slowed-down disco records, trippy, weird, folky rap records, quirky instrumental ‘trap’ records, boom-bap sounding records, and even soundtrack records,” the boys recently said, “and have that all make sense together.” (Shephard’s Beach Resort, Clearwater Beach) INFO

✔️ Ronnie Dee and the Superstars Video Release w/Joey Dee/Mike MacArthur/Infinite Skillz Bay area rock supergroup Ronnie Dee and the Superstars invites fans to check out the premiere of a new video, ““Ballad of the Bad Seed.” This eclectic bill also includes a performance from St. Pete emcee Infinite Skills, plus acoustic sets from Ken Logan and Joe Sanders of Cult Status.

Chuck Ragan on the angst, loss and camaraderie he's bringing to Florida

Hot Water Music w/Dikembe/Expert Timing Legendary Gainesville punks come to Ybor City for one of just two announced U.S. tour dates. Gainesville punk group Dikembe supports along with Orlando pop-punk group Expert Timing. Read our interview with Hot Water Music's Chuck Raganhere. (Orpheum, Ybor City) INFO

✔️ Ol’ Dirty Sundays w/Jask It’s kind of crazy to know that Jask hasn’t hit Ol’ Dirty Sundays yet, but his touch (jazzy, soulful and melodic with lots of new wave, disco, hip-hop rock and electro mixed in) will be more than welcome as the notoriously fun weekly party ramps up for its seventh anniversary weekend. Old heads will remember Jask from the days when he started Tampa’s first weekly soulful underground house night (“Jack’s House”) at Hyde Park Cafe, and it’ll be cool to see the youth get acquainted at this show. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO

✔️ Fiesta Maxima w/Víctor Manuelle Put your salsa shoes on when 16-time Latin Grammy and Grammy nominee Victor Manuelle comes to Tampa for a headlining slot on 92.5 FM’s Fiesta Maxima party. The 49-year-old Bronx-born stud still dominates the airwaves, but it’s old-school salsa romantica like “He Tratado” and “Apiádate de mi” that really get folks on their feet.
