Tonight in live music; The Grahams play Straz Center, holiday jams elsewhere and more

But it's also the last night of Church of Nintendo at The Bricks.


The Grahams There’s nothing wrong with a little roots music on a Monday, and country power couple The Grahams want to give it to you via the act’s “whiskey-shooting, hog-hollering” sound that also pays homage to everything from “rural church gospel to the rhinestone world of the Grand Ole Opry.” (Jaeb Theater at David A.

The BOTB-winning congregation says goodbye to its Monday-night Bricks residency after a three-year run, and we're going to shed all kinds of 8-bit tears. (The Bricks, Ybor City) INFO
