Share on Nextdoor

Amid the roots acts that froth up so frequently from the Tampa Bay talent pool, Brother Cephus — the project of Tampa-based bros Seth and Gabriel Davis — stands out with strong songwriting and a firm grasp of yearning and melody, from the soothing dusty-folk ramblings of “Waiting” with its delicate passages of layered guitar prettiness and raw vocal quality to the more urgent roots-noise of “Crossroads” that builds to dark and heavy Southern-soaked territories with pounding and screaming washes of bass and guitar. This show marks the release of Wounded Hearts: Collection 2, a follow-up to the debut they issued just this past May. Digital download codes are offered with limited (50 total) custom-made art prints designed by Amy Kathryn Anderson and Joel Davis, the latter behind warm-up solo act Fistful. South Florida indie rockers Civilian will also perform at this New Granada-hosted release party. 7 p.m., Crowbar, Ybor City, $8.
