A look at some concerts happening this Sun., Jan. 24.

Here's a breakdown of show's happening on this Sun., Jan. 24.

Torche with Jeff Carey, Day Old Man, Meatwound Miami’s own Torche closes out their first tour of 2016 and brings their ultra-unique doom metal vibes to the area, continuing to support fourth and latest full-length (and Relapse Records debut), Restarter. The 10-track LP showcases the band’s grime-crusted mix of sludge and doom metal sounds, with the vocals of frontman Steve Brooks crowning the group’s instrumentals with a note of poignancy and depth and penetrating the sonic mire like a razor. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) –Justin Croteau

Ground Water Mafia with Veird, Gullwing, Banned, Dylan Houser
Venture hosts a rather strident musical lineup as headed up by Nashville’s Ground Water Mafia, which plies guitar-squealing vocal-caterwauling, about-to-rattle-off-the-tracks punk-noise. (The Venture Compound, St. Petersburg)–Leilani Polk

Paul Gigante's 50th Birthday Bash & H4 Benefit Gigante Productions’ DJ/photographer namesake throws a birthday party that’s also a benefit (H4: Helping our Homeless High Schoolers Achieve Higher Education) to raise funds to provide supplies, clothes, food, a computer or even shelter for itinerant college-bound seniors. Three musical acts (USF Hot Band, Butch Ryan Band and Rosco Freed Band) plus three DJs (Svrge Farina, Richey Rich and Paul G.) are slated to perform. (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa)–LP

Will Hoge
Nashville-brewed Grammy-nominated country/Americana singer-songwriter Will Hoge is currently on tour behind Small Town Dreams. According to the artist in a recent interview, "I think it is the most representative of not only who I am as an artist but where I’m from. I think every song from the record is deeply inspired by growing up in Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee, and watching this area grow and change and become something that it wasn’t 25 years ago ... And, I feel like as an artist, kinda I’ve gone through that same transformation." (Jaeb Theater at Straz Center for the Performing Arts, Tampa)–LP
