Snail Mail's headlining Tampa concert is finally happening on Wednesday

The gig was initially postponed when the 23-year-old developed vocal cord issues that required surgery.

Lindsey Jordan’s fall show opening for Turnstile is very sold-out, but this gig on Wednesday, Aug. 24 at The Ritz Ybor is honestly a better opportunity to see her band Snail Mail in a more intimate setting and in the headlining slot.

Plus, it's been a long time coming after being initially postponed when the 23-year-old developed vocal cord issues that required surgery. The last time the band played Ybor City, the show was literaly lights out.

Expect lots of sing-alongs with a healthy chance of tears when songs from Valentine, the band’s latest album of lovelorn, hard-rocking pop, get dropped after L.A. indie-rock duo Momma and Minneapolis shoegaze outfit Hotline TNT open the show.
