There’s gonna come a time when degenerate parents get to attend Crowbar’s now infamous pre-Fourth of July party with their kids. Until then, join a packed room of all your favorite assholes for the 13th installment of the Hot Dog Party. Pure beef hot dogs will be doled out by the just-opened Cass St. Deli while the homies at 3 Dot Dash come out of their Seminole Heights service window to sling vegan wieners.

Rambunctious Tampa garage-rock trio Johnny Mile and the Kilometers brings its always-rowdy live set to the show along with gruff-voiced rock and roller Tommy Phenom, Tampa rapper Gat$ and indie-pop three-piece Animal Person. A gloriously disgusting hot dog eating competition will also go down while Wally Clark plays selector for the duration.

Hot Dog Party 13: The Unlucky Inch w/Johnny Mile and the Kilometers/Tomme Phenom/Gat$/Animal Person/Wally Clark. Wed., June 3, 6 p.m. $10. Crowbar, Ybor City. brokenmoldentertainment.com.
