American post-hardcore band Scary Kids Scaring Kids (SKSK) is in Tampa next week to celebrate the 15th anniversary of its debut album The City Sleeps in Flames (technically the anny was last year, but COVID).

Seattle’s The Classic Crime, Lexington’s Picturesque and “disruptive rock” band The Villa join in for the East Coast tour.

Scary Kids Scaring Kids/The Classic Crime/Picturesque/The Villa. Tuesday. Sept. 28, 6 p.m. $22-$40. The Orpheum, Ybor City.
