Bigfoot on the River
Tim Anderson’s long had a knack for bringing out-of-the-box, ear-splitting sounds to non-traditional venues, and the Tampa promoter and musician is doing it again with this one at Bigfoot on the River, a riverside dive bar near Busch Gardens.

His punk trio, Crone is in the middle of this bill and playing its first show alongside Tampa hardcore lifer Yield To None.

Anderson told CL that the performance is happening on the dock’s gazebo, and that the secret to booking these shows is to be a very annoying person. “Frequenting the establishment helps,” he added.

Afterworld opens the show just a few days off the release of a demo, where the dark-electro duo featuring CL staff writer Justin Garcia and Carson Cox (Merchandise, Romeo Blu, Too Free) plays noise-rock that’s harsh (“Make Me”), freaky (“Don’t you like it?”) and even poppy (check out the hook on “Eternally You”).

Donations to see Yield To None, Crone and Afterworld play Tampa's Bigfoot on the River on Saturday, March 4 would normally be collected at the door for a show like this, but there's literally no door on the gazebo.
