✔️ Lucero w/Brent Cowles Brent Cowles — a pastor’s son who once fronted You Me & Apollo — has found a voice in his own style of blues, soul and pop that’s caught the ears of tastemakers at NPR who have dubbed him one of the public radio station’s Slingshot Artists of 2018. The Denver songwriter opens for Lucero, which is supporting its new album, Among The Ghosts. Read our interview with Lucero frontman Ben Nichols via cltampa.com/music. (The Ritz, Ybor City) INFO

✔️ John Wesley w/Geri X For many years now, John Wesley has flown under the radar in Tampa Bay. The Autodrive alum’s best gig is one playing guitar for Porcupine Tree, but on Sunday he joins Geri X for an intimate set where the duo hopefully gets to rekindle some of the magic they made when Geri was working on music at Red Room Studios, a once Ybor-based space Wesley owned with Mark Prator.
