The Creature Cage
A crop of young, South Florida bands is reviving the sounds of ‘90s alternative bands that peaked before its members were even born.

Last week, Smelter was at Hooch to show us its take, and seven days later, it’s Deux Visages which marries the dream pop sound of new bands like Grandaddy with the aesthetics of alt-rock elders like Smashing Pumpkins.

But get to the gig in time to see The Creature Cage—a Miami psych-rock band armed with its mindfuckingly trippy, Thee Oh Sees-channeling, 2021 album Super Destructia—which also opens this one featuring a pair of beloved local rock (The Drain Outs) and indie-pop (MAK) outfits.

Tickets to see Mak, The Drain Outs, Deux Visages and Creature Cage play Hooch and Hive in Tampa on Friday, Jan. 20 are still available for $12.
