With an aura of unapologetic prowess and being tough enough to play a show in the snow, Florida concert-goers should brace themselves for the power of Nashville rock band Thelma and the Sleaze. The self-described "queer, all-female" group will be playing at Hooch and Hive in Tampa on Feb. 8; one stop out of the six Florida shows they have planned.

The trio's last album Sacred as Hell, released at the close of 2020, recently got an upgrade when the band re-recorded tracks in a live setting at North Alabama's famed Muscle Shoals Studio. Sacred as Hell offers the listener '90s grit, some indie-rock, along with a flare only raspy-voiced lead singer Lauren Gilbert (L.G.) could bring to the table. Thelma and the Sleaze is raunchy, honest, and overall a force to be reckoned with. Tickets to the "February Girlz" tour are available now. A gem of a Bay area songwriter (and whistler!), Someday Honey's Kaleigh Baker, opens the show.
