Three highlights on this Sun., May 3. Your end-of-the-weekend music breakdown below.
Holiday Mountain If you missed their performance at Tropical Heatwave, or want another extended taste, Holiday Mountain swings through Dunedin on their way back to their hometown of Austin, laying down some more dance pop with fatty zipping synths and bass-bumping grooves underscored by the saucy commanding vocals of frontwoman Laura Patino. RIYL: Brazilians Girls, Cults, Yeah Yeah Yeahs. (Dunedin Brewery, Dunedin)
Tropical Heatwave Hangover Party with Will Quinlan and the Holy Slow Train, The Hummingbirds Nurse your Heatwave-battered body with a few craft brews, an Indie Grilled Cheese, and some dusty, soulful, Southern-fried roots and folk rock tunes by emotive singer-songwriter Will Quinlan and his Holy Slow Train. Detroit male-female acoustic-guitar-wielding Americana duo The Hummingbirds also perform. (Independent Bar & Café, Tampa)
