Today in live music; SHINE Live, Travelin' McCourys, Sun Signs, more

Celebrate those murals with a free fest & then some

SHINE: Live w/Polyenso/Mike Mass/QueenofEx Carter/Loose Talk/more St. Pete’s wildly successful SHINE mural festival closes things out with a parking lot party featuring a handful of the Tampa Bay area’s best rock, rap and indie acts. Admission is free, and you can spring for VIP bathrooms & bars should you need a little luxury in your life. (Furnish Me Vintage, St. Petersburg) INFO

The Travelin’ McCourys w/Dre and the Collective This is what happens when bluegrass is your life. Ronnie and Rob McCoury are the sons of genre legend Del McCoury, and they continue pops’ dedication to the tradition along with fiddler player Jason Carter, bassist Alan Bartram and new guitarist Cody Kilby. Their sound comes from, and remains firmly rooted in, bluegrass’ beloved past, but the youngsters are adding a little modern flair to it all. (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa) INFO 

Sun Signs w/ CHEW/Dawns Christian Stewart’s incredibly strong indie rock experiment shows its face live for a set at this downtown dive where we hope the songwriter and guitarist rips through all of a timeless 2015 EP propelled by guitar work and melodies inspired by the Mars Volta and Modest Mouse. (The Hub, Tampa) INFO

The Only Daddys w/The Hummingbirds You know it’s going to get a little rowdy when a band’s name is ripped off of Waylon. The Only Daddy’s dial it back to the days of westerns, Johnny Cash, Merle, and yes, Waylon Jennings for a set where Florida-by-way-of-Michigan rock & roll duo The Hummingbirds play support. (Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg) INFO

Have Gun Will Travel w/Geri X Fans of Geri X can see the Bulgarian singer songwriter play in Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood, but why not go for a bonus by catching her play a show in Safety Harbor with adored Tampa Bay americana outfit Have Gun, Will Travel who’ll headline this laid back, outdoor set. (Crooked Thumb Brewery, Safety Harbor) INFO

Poetry ‘N Lotion With the recent departure of founding member Matt Lee, Tampa instrumental outfit Poetry ‘N Lotion keep on keeping on with new members and new material that finds them sounding, dare we say, better than ever — especially on selections from Herbie Hancock’s Head Hunters. See & hear what they’ve been up to at this free show in the beer garden. (Green Bench, St. Petersburg) INFO

Les Dudek This one is kind of a haul, but worth a mention because it features Les Dudek, a 64-year-old guitarist who played with The Allman Brothers Band, Steve Nicks, and Steve Miller Band, to name a few. (Derry Down, Winter Haven) INFO
