If there’s anyone who could ever pull you out of the coronavirus funk, it’s Paul Thorn. The Tupelo-based songwriter—an WMNF favorite who frequently played Skipper’s Smokehouse on his come up—has an uncanny ability to disarm audiences with his Southern drawl, and he’s coming back to Tampa Bay on February 17.

Tickets to see him play Clearwater’s Bilheimer Capitol Theatre go on sale Fri. July 10 at 10 a.m. EDT and start at $26.
