Tonight in live music; Epic Beard Men at Dunedin Brewery, Wynonna at The Cap, Lucky You Fest day two and more

Brik Liam, CHEW, Florida Björkestra and The Venus all rocking, too.


✔️ = Critic's Pick

✔️ Epic Beard Men w/Divinci/Skip/Jon Ditty Dunedin Brewery might be the most underrated Bay venue place for a hip-hop show, and the space is organizing another one of those gigs you’ll regret missing when Epic Beard Men (a project featuring real-life rap BFFs Sage Francis and B. Dolan) takes the stage after Divinci (Solillaquists of Sound), Skip and Jon Ditty open the show. (Dunedin Brewery, Dunedin) INFO

Crown & Quill Social Club w/Brik.Liam/more Crown & Quill Social Club is a new, bi-monthly series showcasing artists and storytellers, and its first event happens at Tampa Heights' CAVU space, where Memphis-based chef and etiquette coach Desmond Robinson will share stories (and heavy hors d'oeuvres) before songwriter Brik Liam (set to tour with PJ Morton this spring) performs an intimate set and dives into his own creative process. (CAVU, Tampa Heights) INFO

St. Pete space-rock band The Venus muscles up the Joe Meek sound on “Saturn Grind” — listen

✔️ Chew w/Fayroy/The Venus It doesn’t get too much better than a laid-back Sunday at Green Bench, and on this particular one, two CL-adored stoned and psychedelic rock outfits (FayRoy and The Venus) get weird in support of Atlanta’s own CHEW, which arrives with a fuzzy, trippy brand of rock and roll to share with thirsty, beer-loving ‘Burgers who won’t mind paying no cover to get into this one. (Green Bench Brewing Co., St. Petersburg) INFO

✔️ Florida Björkestra If the phrase “gender fluidity” freaks you the fuck out, then get your vulnerable ass out of your comfort zone and into a seat at Hough Hall, where one of the Bay area’s most dynamic ensembles (The Florida Björkestra) explores the music of Madonna and George Michael. Brian Baez will sing Madonna (Björkestra fans may recognize Baez from a turn singing “Spike” at the 15-piece band’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer concert) while Jamie Perlow sings George. (Hough Hall at the Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg) INFO

✔️ Lucky You Fest w/Leviathan Cross/Pyre/Horsewhip/Gillian Carter/Ether/Thunderclap/Vacancy/I'm An Intestine/Shroud Eater A two-day festival leaning on punk and metal wraps its second day at an all-ages space & tattoo shop.
