If you ever caught Hank Williams III with the Damn Band, Jim Finklea—a.k.a. Joe Buck—might have been slapping the double bass in the corner.

Now that the group is three quarters of a decade gone, the Jacksonville country punk is playing a few southeast gigs this summer, including this one in Tampa on Friday, Aug. 26 at New World Brewery's music hall that’s a borderline homecoming concert.
Two of Finklea’s albums, Who Dat and Piss And Vinegar were recently issued on vinyl, so keep an eye on the merch tables if wax is your bag. Band of Sorrows' Jack Sprouse and Tampa Bay's mad scientist of ska-punk Twisty Chris open.
