Too Many Daves
Living Tampa punk history takes to the American Legion in Seminole Heights on Friday, June 17.

If you're mad, blame Too Many Daves, a band featuring three Daves: Titltwheel’s Davey Quinn (who’s rumored to have written songs for Blink-182 in the Damnit days), A.D.D. fanzine founder Dave Disorder who ran one of the area’s first punk houses in Clairmel and also plays in What Me Worry alongside John Stanier of Helmet, plus Creative Loafing Tampa Bay photographer Dave Decker (who’s a local punk legend in his own right).
The Daves are joined by Joe Paez (aka Joe Dave) and Richie Lawler, who together play a “totally partyn’” brand of pizza punk that’s more or less unforgettable.

Tampa-based punky metal noise maker Tension Electric plays support at American Legion Post 111 alongside City Mouse and No More which are local punk heros in their own hometowns (Los Angeles, Gainesville, respectively).
