Tampa songwriter series Red Light Café relocates to Hooch and Hive

Ricky Steece starts the new chapter on February 20.


You can’t find long-running songwriter series Red Light Café in Ybor City anymore, but organizers have found a new home at Hooch and Hive just a few blocks away from the Straz Center. The big, beautiful harp-driven pop of His Hem and DIY folk of Ricky Steece anchors this first show at Red Light’s new home, and we’re excited for the future of the series.

Red Light Café w/His Hem/Ricky Steece/Kid Loki. Wed. Feb. 20. 8 p.m. No cover. Hooch and Hive, 1001 W. Cass St., Tampa. INFO.
