Band of Sorrows frontman Jack Sprouse brings whiskey-soaked musical stylings to Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café. Some of his cohorts are joining in, and though we can’t tell you their names right now, they’ll probably be your BFFs by the end of the two-hour set.

Reserving a table in advance is your best bet to ensure a spot for the free show, and getting an Uber home is your best bet for not getting a DUI after you drink your weight in bourbon with your new besties.

Jack Sprouse and Friends. Fri. Nov. 27, 9 p.m. Free. Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe, Tampa.
