Tyler Barnes takes a lot of pride in the fact that his band Fuákata—a Spanish onomatopoeia—is entirely DIY.

The quintet, which plays Tampa's Hooch and Hive on Friday, Aug. 19, books its own hows, recording sessions, and everything in between all on its own. The group will bring its self-described “blend of Ska, hardcore, reggae & punk rock, with hints of Miami flavor” sound to this West River district gig as a part of a mini tour including a west Florida debut.

L.A. ska-punk band Trinidad Suave, and Clearwater’s Victims of Circumstance—playing the same genre—open.
