Vinyl Theatre w/Vesperteen Vinyl Theatre has stayed busy touring as support for the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Misterwives, Dashboard Confessional and Panic! At The Disco, but the ‘80s-influenced post-punk and pop band from Milwaukee is playing the headlining role on this spring tour in support of it’s 2017 album, Origami. Vesperteen — the indie-pop project of Colin Rigsby — opens the show less than a year after playing the same room as the main attraction. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO


Dead Boys w/Porno Party/Abortion Twins/The Scurvy/The Damnsels Kidney stones are not fun, and right now they're severely affecting Cheetah Chrome of punk rock pioneers Dead Boys. The band has cancelled shows in several Southern cities including tonight's Tampa show at The Brass Mug. A healthy bill of locals is still on, however, so if you took the night off, then make it out and support your neighbors. (Brass Mug, Tampa) INFO
