The members of Tampa’s Sick Hot have to be reincarnated. Have to. It’s the only explanation for the existence of 20-somethings who can pull off a sound and look that’s so…,well, old. The outfit’s 2020 single “Vulture Culture” could get plopped on the soundtrack for “Dazed and Confused,” and no one would argue that it didn’t belong right next to Deep Purple’s 1972 song “Highway Star.”

Sick Hot celebrates a new EP at this gig where Blake High grad and former Sick Hot member Summer Hoop rounds out an opening slate that includes glittery, throwback glam-rock from Roxx Revolts and the Velvets which wants to take you to the roller rink in a new video for “Supersonica Girl.”

Sick Hot album release w/Roxx Revolts and the Velvets/Summer Hoop. Saturday, July 10, 8 p.m. $12-$15 door. Crowbar, Ybor City.
