97 Craft Experience: Giovannie & the Hired Guns
Get ready to two-step because Giovannie & the Hired Guns have sandwiched a Tampa Bay stop in between appearances at Jacksonville's Welcome to Rockville and Chicago's Lollapalooza.

The Tejano five-piece plays a country-fied brand of rock and roll with just some headbanging sprinkled in, which it will bring to St. Petersburg's Mahaffey Theatre on 22 as part of 97X WSUN-FM's "Craft Experience"
craft beer and cocktail event where tickets start at $45.
Natives of Stephenville, Texas, the band—led by Giovannie Yanez—is touring in advance of a new album, Tejano Punk Boys, due in July.
