North Carolina stoner metal band Weedeater returns to Tampa for Sunday concert

The Cape Fear-based outfit was last year for a Tampa Bay Beer Week gig in 2019.

Only a “stoner metal” band like Weedeater—or Tenacious D—can come up with song titles like “Wizard Fight,” “Jason...the Dragon” and “Weed Monkey.” And you probably already know that Jack Black isn’t coming to town this week. Weedeater, from Cape Fear, North Carolina was last in town for a Tampa Bay Beer Week event two years ago, so it’ll be nice to reconnect with the sludge lords after this long (ongoing) pandemic.

Hank Willaims-eque Joe Buck Yourself and singer-songwriter Adam Faucett open the Sunday show. Be cool and wear a mask—vaxxed or not.

Weedeater w/Joe Buck Yourself/Adam Faucett. Sunday, Aug. 8, 6 p.m. $22-$40. The Orpheum, Ybor City. INFO
