Tonight in live music; Great Good Fine OK, The War and Treaty, plus more ironic band names on the night after Election Day

Empire Cinema, has a show tonight, too...

Great Good Fine OK w/Dreamers/Pajamas Brooklyn electro-pop duo Great Good Fine OK are coming to Ybor City, and the irony is not lost on us on as we nurse a post-Election Day hangover (by the way, you should read Scott's take on why the way we react to this is much more important that what actually happened). Anyone who thinks they'll remain hell bent on blaming other people for this instead of actually doing something about it...might want to consider the song below? (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO

Empire Cinema w/R-Dent/Shurwood Tampa dark-wave outfit Empire Cinema are close to sharing some new recordings with the rest of us, but for now you'll have to settle for this intimate show at Seminole Heights record shop Microgroove. An absolutely addicting pop punk outfit (R-Dent) is visiting from Jacksonville, and a band born in a Dade City shed (Shurwood) plays their first hometown show in a while. Word on the street is that free hugs are getting doled out on the next block. (Microgroove, Tampa) INFO

The War and Treaty Album Release w/Ari Chi A unique mixture of roots, gospel and folk music comes to life at a beautiful listening room when The War and Treaty arrive to celebrate their debut full-length, Dear Martha. Ari Chi, a Bay area songstress who hypnotizes with the melodies she sings on top of bare bones ukulele arrangements, opens the show. (Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg) INFO

Acoustic BBQ Series w/The Coteries (New World Brewery, Ybor City) INFO
