Ceremony came up hardcore, but over the past 16 years has since made no effort to ignore impulses to indulge in the sounds of Joy Division and other '80s aesthetics. The evolution of the band has widened its net for the better, and this summer, the California band will welcome all of its fans to Ybor City.

Tickets to see Ceremony play Crowbar in Ybor City, Florida on Wednesday, Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. are on sale now for $15-$18.

Minneapolis scuzz-punk band Hotline TNT opens the show along with Tampa's own Romeo Blu, which is a project helmed by Merchandise frontman Carson Cox. See Josh Bradley 's weekly new concert roundup below.
