Two shows on two nights and just 24 miles apart? That almost sounds like a touring band vacation, and the Bunch boys earned one over the weekend as they took to The Bends on Friday night for a St. Pete gig at The Bends.

The show — in support of the Alabama outfit's late 2016 release Forever My Sparring Partner — happened 24 hours after they played Tampa, and Brian Mahar was at The 'Burg dive bar to grab some photos of Bunch and a very shirtless group of Jackettes. Have a look, and listen to that LP, below.
