The Dirty Janes
Tampa's Sick Hot had its final show in October when it opened for Tyler Bryant in St. Petersburg, but members of the outfit—which previously played throwback rock & roll for fans of Zeppelin and smoking weed—are back under a new moniker, The Dirty Janes.

“We’re so grateful for every experience and opportunity we had under our old name,” the band wrote to fans, “but we’re feeling fresh with all of this new music we’ve been recording and are ready to start a new chapter!”

There’s a heavy AC/DC vibe to a promo reel for the Dirty Janes’ debut gig, and with the kind of players Sick Hot had, this new endeavor is sure to turn heads.

The Annie Dukes and Sligh open for The Dirty Janes who play Tampa's New World Brewery on Friday, Dec. 9.
