This Saturday in live music: Tyler, The Creator, Pine Hill Haints & more

Concerts happening this Sat., April 25

A breakdown of concerts happening this Sat., April 25.

The Pine Hill Haints with Serious Sam Barrett Self-styled purveyors of “Alabama Ghost Music” The Pine Hill Haints ply a Southern gothic-stoked blend of newgrass, roots rock, honky-tonk and country music as led by guitarist/vocalist Jamie Barrier and wife Kat (mandolin, singing saw, washboard); accordion player Sarah Nelson, Matt Bakula on washtub bass and tenor banjo and snare drummer Ben Rhyne fill out the instruments on songs like “They Tried To Kill My Momma’s Son” and “Walkin Talkin Dead Man.” Serious Sam Barrett hails from England — the West Yorkshire hills to be exact — and wails on a 12-string resonator as he delivers raw and brash folk blues that “rattle with the ghosts of Appalachian folk, and Southern blues, yet sound emphatically English,” according to Uncut Magazine.

Tyler, The Creator with TACO The word “revolutionized” gets passed around advertising circles like a bottle of Fireball at a frat house these days, but I think it’s completely on the nose to say Odd Future completely revolutionized the way we think about hip-hop and its place within the cultural landscape. It's all the more reassuring to see that this isn’t all just a flash in a pan, that a few of them, including O.F.’s de-facto figurehead, Tyler, the Creator, are getting serious about making music in this big-budget, creative sandbox they’ve built for themselves. Surprise new album Cherry Bomb (which dropped a few weeks back) includes appearances from Schoolboy Q, Pharrell, Kali Uchis, Kanye West and Lil Wayne. On this Bay area date, he’s joined by fellow Odd Future-er TACO. (Jannus Live, St. Petersburg) —Andrew Silverstein

Flat Stanley, Y Los Dos Pistoles, Old Vices We won’t dwell on how long Flat Stanley has been pumping out angry, unique and substantive punk rock in Tampa, lest we start feeling a bit long in the tooth ourselves, but the band is always worth a watch, and is recording a live album tonight; while newer, Y Los Dos Pistoles is also a scene vet with an original take and energetic, expressive rock sound. Old Vices? What? Oh, you mean Jeff (Brawer), Dan (Padilla) and Philip (Stanwick) doing something raw-boned together. Cool. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) —Scott Harrell

Ewan Dobson The Canadian fingerstyle guitarist self-released two albums last year showing off his ridiculous technical prowess in two different axe formats: Acoustic Metal II and 12 String Guitar. (Largo Cultural Center, Largo)

Dropin Pickup with Trigger City Trio, One Mile Final, Hope Darling Tampa-based Ocean Harbor Management presents a showcase of artists currently under its wing: high octane viola-and-horn-dosed folk-roots rockers Dropin Pickup, funk-vibing Trigger City Trio, twang-saturated, New Orleans-soaked One Mile Final and emotive alt-rock quintet Hope Darling.
