Merchandise, who play a free in-store at Mojo Books & Records in Tampa, Florida tonight.

Merchandise LP Release In an interview with CL Tampa, Merchandise guitarist David Vassalotti said this hyper-intimate show would find his Tampa-based band experimenting some and definitely playing cuts they don’t normally do at club shows (like the one at Crowbar in Ybor City next Friday, September 23).

Fans will also be able to buy the band’s new album, A Corpse Wired For Sound, ahead of it’s official release date. There’s a good chance you’ll be watching from outside the glass if you don’t arrive early for this one. (Mojo Books & Records, Tampa) INFO

The Cocks Does this mean they’re not Revolting anymore? Several ex-members of old-school industrial-punk outfit The Revolting Cocks — including Luc Van Acker, Chris Connelly, Richard 23 and Paul Barker — are reuniting under an new moniker (read: shortened, The Cocks) for a tour celebrating their debut full-length, Big Sexy Land, released three decades ago. There are only five other dates on this tour, and the Tuesday night show is the Cocks’s only Florida stop. (Orpheum, Ybor City) INFO
