✔️ The Robin Zander Family Band Cheap Trick frontman Robin Zander and his family, Robin Taylor and Robin-Sailor, will perform onstage together for the first time ever at this gig where the unit will play Cheap Trick favorites and originals. (Capitol Theater, Clearwater) INFO

Chase Bryant Six months ago, Chase Bryant apologized to fans after letting fame go to his head, which leads many of you to ask: “Who the fuck is Chase Bryant?” Well, he’s the pop-country pseudo stud who released his debut single “Take It on Back” in 2014 and watched it reach No. 9 on Billboard’s country airplay chart before its follow-up single, “Little Bit of You,” peaked even higher at No. 4. Bryant, after the two flop singles that followed, wrote on Instagram that “Success got the absolute best of me, and I toted my charisma like I was some sort of superhero.” The pressure on the 24-year-old must be high, because it seems like he’s all anxious about this gig at a just-out-of-the-area country & western bar.

DJ Pauly D Do you love Jersey Shore: Family Vacation enough to drop $25 to see one of its stars feign DJ-ing in front of a room full of gawkers? Well, you’re in luck, because the tannest guy on MTV (who is, admittedly, the only guy really worth liking on Family Vacation) is in town with his laptop to throw down at The Ritz. The real question, however, is whether or not Pauly D — who got his start DJing back home — is a better DJ or reality television star. (The Ritz, Ybor City) INFO

Singer-Songwriter Series w/John Nowicki/Peter Nuffer Just when you thought The Hub was the best place to drink one too many while watching live music. A $10 bill gets you in the door for a songwriter show at this downtown natural-wine honey hole where you’ll also get one glass of wine. Tickets should be available at the door, but you can still call this sweet hotline phone number (813-223-BEES) to reserve a spot in advance. (Lector Social Club: Lit & Natty Wine, Tampa) INFO

Blessthefall w/The Word Alive, Ded/Thousand Below/A War Within Scottsdale, Arizona metalcore outfit Blessthefall has got no time for the spacebar, and it also released a new album, Hard Feelings, on Rise Records this spring. “Our new album is a culmination of everything we love,” singer Beau Bokan said about the about the release. “It has all the old Blessthefall feels, along with a fresh new sound that will knock you off your feet.” This will also be the last tour where drummer Matt Traynor — who is leaving the band to spend more time with family — is keeping time, so gosaygoodbye, OK?
