Tickets to see Lightning Bolt play Crowbar in Ybor City on Friday, April 7 are on sale now for $20. An opening act has yet to be announced. The only other Florida dates on Lightning Bolt’s 2023 tour are in Orlando (April 8) and Jacksonville (April 9).
Lightning Bolt—made up of virtuosic bassist Brian Gibson and drummer Brian Chippendale—recently re-released albums from 2012 (Oblivion Hunter) and 2009 (Earthly Delights), and is known for playing on the ground in clubs, and even in kitchens and parking lots.
Born at an art school in Rhode Island, chaos is the order of the day for Lightning Bolt which still gets together more than 25 years after the release of its self-titled debut.
Its latest album is the band’s seventh, Sonic Citadel (released in 2019). It goes without saying that ear protection is highly recommended for this one.
