Lots happening on the first night of the work week. Check out the breakdown for this Mon., March 14 below.
Adam Lambert UPDATE: Glambert has canceled tonight's show due to an unspecified illness. (Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater)
Vance Joy with Blind Pilot, Jamie Lawson There’s no way you haven’t heard the radio pervasive “Riptide”; type the word into a Google search and the YouTube video for Vance Joy’s ode is the first thing that pops up. (It has more than 110 million views and counting.) The ukulele and guitar-strumming has only released a few recordings of poignant folk-pop (the EP that spawned “Riptide” and 2014 debut full-length Dream Your Life Away, which also featured the track), but he’s still touring on the strength of his first LP, with other singles like “Fire and the Flood” getting airplay and keeping the momentum going. (Jannus Live, St. Petersburg)
Tides Of Man with Icarus The Owl, Covet, Kodiac We haven’t seen a headlining set from Tampa’s own instrumental prog-post rock outfit, Tides of Man, since the release show behind their 2014 full-length Young and Courageous. The quartet has been working on new material and takes a break to hit the road on a three-week U.S. tour that also features sets by some bands with similar aesthetic qualities, including Portland indie alt rock quartet Icarus The Owl and math-y femme-led Cali outfit Covet. (Orpheum, Ybor City)
Black Pussy with Beer Wolf, PLEASURES If you can get past the nasty moniker (which had black feminists up in arms last year), Black Pussy churns out a mix of stoned, ball-busting rock crunch and‘70s-influenced psychedelic blues that’s definitely worthy of your attention. (New World Brewery, Ybor City)
