Fat Jim Morrison, who plays New World Brewery in Ybor City, Florida on August 23, 2017.

Acoustic BBQ w/Fat Jim Morrison/Pete Nuffer The world, oddly, hasn't realized it yet, but Jim Morrison is hiding out a few thousand miles away in New Zealand and hiding underneath more than a few pounds of gelatinous fat. Luckily, he's in town tonight to play his last set at New World Brewery's Ybor City location (the bar is throwing one last show before relocation on September 23). Fat Jim is an abrasive personality, so only be half of a snowflake (or broflake) tonight at this one. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) INFO

The Roosevelts Rock Brothers is getting pretty good at scooping up these Nashville acts and plopping them into the listening room above the future brewery's tasting room. The Roosevelts have been reinventing themselves since a 2012 name change, and their efforts have earned then spots opening for Grace Potter, Robert Earl Keen and more. The boys also have beard care products, so there's that. (The Attic at Rock Brothers Brewing, Ybor City) INFO

Phonogenics: 101 Joni Mitchell The Hissing Of Summer Lawns Jeremy Gloff’s well-oiled album discussion series takes on this 1975 Joni Mitchell effort that confused fans of its jazzy predecessor (‘74’s Court and Spark) while completely losing anyone who refused to believe that Mitchell would evolve from the perfect-folk sound she crafted on her 1971 breakthrough LP, Blue. Don’t bring your Moog, but do BYOB to (and be on time for) this track-by-track talk that kicks off just after 8 p.m. (Disco Dolls Studio, Tampa) INFO
