Bassnectar w/Amp Live Seems like every electronic music producer has integrated the shaky wom-wom-wom bass drops of dubstep into their sonic aesthetic. Bassnectar (real name Lorin Ashton) has been screwing around with sounds since 2003, and while dubstep is a definite element to his break-beat/glitch compositions, he also calls on a range of other textures and techniques; he's described the result as "an amalgamation of every sound I've ever heard, mixed with ultra wicked basslines." (Jannus Live, St. Petersburg)

MON 24

Kim Richey The Grammy-nominated country music singer-songwriter returns for a redux at the Jaeb nearly two years after her last stop in town and with a new album in tow, Wreck Your Wheels. "Richey's clear, soulful voice mixed with her honest, approachable personality made the evening feel more like an intimate concert in her living room, rather than in a sold-out theater," CL Contributor Jeff O'Kelley wrote of her last show. (Jaeb Theater at The Straz Center, Tampa)


Little Dragon w/Tycho In the title track off Little Dragon's third and latest LP, Ritual Union, frontwoman Yukimi Nagano reflects on the ritual of marriage and the struggle to stay in love against mid-tempo rhythms, minimalist basslines and a recurring warped-and-bent sample that serves as the foundation for Nagano's understated but always soulfully mesmerizing vocals, which range from understated R&B falsetto to a deeper, husky and velvety rich pitch. The Swedish quartet has added more futuristic textures to their indietronic sound while retaining their dreamy dance pop appeal. (Crowbar, Ybor City)


Battles w/Auto!Automatic!! The experimental rock group headed up by Helmet drummer John Stanier saw the exit of vocalist Tyondai Braxton in 2010, but has soldiered on as a three-piece and hits town on the heels of the release of Gloss Drop, their high-quality second album and follow-up to 2007's Mirrored.
