We're sorry. You're probably reading this and cursing CL because we didn't post soon enough to get you to a downtown Tampa lunchtime concert with St. Pete instrumental outfit Bride of Chaotica (it's so beautiful outside, who wouldn't jump at the chance to have a meal and music under the sun?). Please accept our apologies.

That said, there's still a couple nice options for you tonight. Have a look and listen below.

Drug vs. Permanent Makeup  We're all familiar with songwriters in the round, but how's that work when it comes to punk rock bands? You could find out tonight when Lucky You Tattoo asks Tampa shoegaze/punk five piece Drug to go head to head with St. Pete's Permanent Makeup. Both bands will be set up at the same time, and they'll swap songs. Simulate the match by pressing play on the tracks below. (Lucky You Tattoo, Seminole) INFO

Acoustic BBQ w/Marc Ganancias/Jack Sprouse/Jennifer Kelso Lakeland is most definitely in the house. It's been a weird week for fans of New World Brewery, but folks looking to latch onto something sturdy should check out the original live music at the venue's Acoustic BBQ. Today welcomes Lakeland's Marc Ganancias and and Jack Sprouse to the party along with Jennifer Kelso who arrives in sunny Ybor City all the way from Alaska. We can't find any music from Kelso, but this is a no cover, early show with $5 plates of New World's famous smoked 'cue. Here's video of Ganancias playing Pokey's in Tampa about a week ago.
