This Saturday in live music: Bogus Pomp, Skipper's Smokehouse 35th Anniversary Party & more

A look at what's happening in music this Sat., Sept. 26

It's a big bombastic day of live music, in addition to all the bands hitting town for Plan B. Check out the schedule for this Sat., Sept. 26 

Bogus Pomp Orchestra July saw the Frank Zappa tribute band playing a two-night stand at Palladium in their straightforward electric configuration. Just in time to whet fan appetites for the forthcoming digital release of 16 Zappa albums and the remastered 40th Anniversary edition of One Size Fits All in October, Jerry Outlaw & Co. return with a setlist of Zappa compositions specially adapted for the 15-piece symphony orchestra that accompanies them for this particular single-night performance. Dr. David Coash — percussionist for Bogus Pomp and The Florida Orchestra — conducts the band through two sets that touch on "Peaches en Regalia," "Holiday in Berlin," "King Kong" and "Big Swifty" among others.

flyingsnakes Reunion Show with Shroud Eater, God Harvest, Meatwound, Weltesser Though Destroyer Fest hasn’t confirmed a date for its second annual edition (the last one was November of 2014), DF organizers continue to stage concerts in conjunction with the fall metal music festival, including this much-anticipated reunion by flyingsnakes, a sludge-crusted local metal outfit that won a Best of the Bay Reader’s Choice award in 2012, but called it quits the following year. Most of the original members (minus Cletis Chatterton, who’s still living in New York) have come back together to play the one-off, and several other solid, metal-crushed area acts warm the evening with plenty of heavy fuzzed-out sounds. (Local 662, St. Petersburg)

Delbert McClinton You’ll never hear requests for more cowbell at a Delbert McClinton show. The esteemed Texas-brewed roots practitioner with rambling blues, rock, R&B and twang inclinations leads his band on a raspy soulful lead vocal and plays a hearty cowbell when the mood strikes. Maybe you’re not familiar with the material he’s released since 1972 – he was never a big charter – but dude’s solid; his songwriting has earned him a few Grammy wins and he knows how to put his distinctive sonic stamp on covers, like his rather poignant reading of Otis Redding’s “Dreams to Remember.” (Capitol Theatre, Clearwater)

The Rock Solid Pressure Industry Showcase XIII Jersey-bred ex-rocker J-Rock uses his hard rock and heavy metal-driven online radio show, Rock Solid Pressure, to help and expose unsigned talent via competitions that are broadcast live on the show in January and showcases like the annual Rock Solid Pressure Industry Showcase. Now in its 13th year, the day-long all-ages event brings 20 mostly Florida bands to State Theatre, each one trying to catch the ears of industry panelists like Saigon Kick’s Jason Bieler (Bieler Brothers Records), super producer Matt LaPlant (Bieler Bros, Atlantic, Roadrunner), Sam McCaslin (Retrospect Records), Jan Barker (Ashley Talent International), musician/artist developer Scott LaFlamme and Ricky Hughes (A&R Crush Drums), and land a record deal, endorsement, good press or some other opportunity from playing the event. Among the Bay area acts appearing on this year’s bill are Nothinn’ Too Fancy, Rockstarr Bentley, From This Fire and The Cunningham Wake. (State Theatre, St. Petersburg)

Soul Saturday with Blackbird Morning St. Pete’s Blackbird Morning has been active since 2013, their style an effortless blend of alt-rock, soul and folk music marked by the jazz-rich vocals of frontwoman Danielle De Cosmo. The four-piece hosts this new monthly event, which features guest musicians and focuses on classic soul music fused with modern jazz and rock sounds. (Hideaway Café & Recording Studio, St. Petersburg) –Andrea McCray

Hyperbolic Chamber Music 5: Music for Tuba and Electronics The fifth edition of Hyperbolic Chamber Music – the series that just took home a Best of the Bay award for its forward-thinking programming and lack of traditional classical music conceits –features a solo program by Brett Copeland, who performs his own experimental electro-tuba compositions along with material by Nathan Corder, William Kraft and Francis Schwartz. Admission is a $5-$10 donation (free with purchase of a Venture membership). (The Venture Compound, St. Petersburg)

Andrew Rayel Hailing from the Republic of Moldova (that Eastern European country nestled between Romania and the Ukraine), Andrew Rayel is a rising EDM star with big room house-bumping, trance-washing production qualities. He’s only 23, but already has plenty of songs to his credit; a studio LP, a couple dozen singles and more than a couple dozen remixes. (Amphitheatre, Ybor City)
