✔️  Roger Daltrey If Roger Daltrey’s long-awaited return to Ruth Eckerd isn’t enough to help fans get over the fact that this isn’t a gig by The Who, then maybe they should think about the eight-year wait between Clearwater solo gigs from the 73-year-old. The fact that lots of current Who collaborators (Simon Townshend, Frank Simes, Loren Gold and John Corey) and even Ringo Starr’s son, drummer Zak Starkey, will all be there should make for some happy Jacks, too.

Marcus King Band Marcus King — a baby-faced blues impresario — turned 21 on the same day he played Tampa’s Gasparilla Music Festival in March, and we’re excited to see how the boy with a voice that sounds 100 years older than it should has matured since we’ve seen him last.

Ricky Steece w/Quartz Prawl/Kevin Greenspoon Tampa avant-pop songsmith Ricky Steece plays ringleader at this Monday night show that’ll see Memphis, Tennessee’s Quartz Prawl work through a set of experimental folk and rock before Los Angeles electro composer (and Bridgetown Records founder) Kevin Greenspoon stages a performance that features video projectors, tape machines and synth programs that react to his live movements.
