Tonight in live music; A band with the worst band name ever plays New World, Fre$h P gives Crowbar hurricane relief, Joel Mull at the Castle and more

Plus cancellations at Jannus and Lucky You Tattoo in St. Pete.

✔️ = Critic's Pick

Crowbar Hurricane Relief Party w/Venus Bleu/Jroc Jones/Beer Wolf/79 Sorcery/Kid Loki/YZM/Fil Pate/Fresh P Two handfuls of Bay area rock, rap and R&B acts band together to help Crowbar — a venue which lost something like seven shows over this Irma bullshit — get back on its feet. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO

✔️  Black Pussy w/Sentries/Loose Talk/The Path of Increased Indifference If you love loud, then the boys of Sentries just might be your dudes. The Bay area “grunge-gaze” band opened for Underoath at the post-hardcore band’s outrageous secret show at Crowbar (Sentries’ second show ever), and now the trio made up of frontman David Teten, bassist Nate Murray and Daniel Williams on drums returns to Ybor City with a new song — “Graticule,” its first bit of recorded music ever — for a show alongside Portland, Oregon longhaired rock-and-roll flower children Black Pussy. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) INFO

Tampa Bay grunge-gaze trio Sentries finally releases music ahead of shows with Horsewhip and Black P*ssy — listen to “Graticule” now

FuntCase w/Phiso Even Amphitheatre had to cancel its shows at The Ritz when Irma bore down on Florida last week, but the untz returns to 1503 E. 7th Ave when UK producer James Hazell (aka FuntCase) brings his dubstep to the room alongside Canadian knob-turner Phiso. (The Ritz, Ybor City) INFO

Joel Mull w/Brian Busto/Glen S Swedish techno vet Joe Mull checks into the Castle (officially free of Nazi-uniformed partiers!) where he’ll bring the sound he and Adam Beyer pioneered at Drumcode to one of Ybor’s most revered underground dance clubs. (The Dungeon at The Castle, Ybor City) INFO

Hurricane Irma causes 2 Chainz to cancel September 15 show at Jannus Live in St. Pete

CANCELLED: 2 Chainz w/Young Dolph Leave it to Tity Boi to save our soaking souls. This show from Georgia rapper Tauheed Epps (better known as 2 Chainz) is on, and you can expect a major trap check from Mr. El Chapo Jr. when he arrives at Jannus to make the most of his biggest fuckin’ problem right now (a broken leg that’s left him performing in a hot pink wheelchair) while fans wild out alongside the hair weave killer himself. (Jannus Live, St. Petersburg) CANCELLED

✔️  CANCELLED: Night Witch w/Gay Scare/Pickpocket/Reality Asylum So far, it’s all systems go for this visit from Tallahassee punks Night Witch, which will bring its pissed off hardcore to St. Pete alongside queer rock quartet Gay Scare, Reality Asylum and Tampa “avant-fartde” trio Pickpocket. (Lucky You Tattoo, St. Petersburg) CANCELLED



Seven Nations (Dunedin Brewery, Dunedin) INFO

Freelow w/Vessoul (The Ale & the Witch, St. Petersburg) INFO

Juanjamon Band with Kenny Stadelman and Kamp (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa) INFO
