Tonight in live music; Henry Rollins, Joe Popp and more

Henry is making up a hurricane show.

Henry Rollins Dear Mr. Henry Rollins: we did make fun of you for rescheduling your October concert because there was a storm a brewing (we can’t even remember that rain cloud's name). We do, however, appreciate the fact that you were thinking about your fans and making sure they didn’t drive to the show in potentially dangerous conditions. We still think this new date is going to be an abrasive experience, and we’re also convinced that things are probably going to be extra heated considering the fact that that ‘merica’s general election has fully ignited a societal situation that we’ll be wading begrudgingly through for the next few years. We’re really hoping that your 55 year old man wisdom schools all of us on what’s wrong with it all and how we might start working to right it. Please do address topics from your column for L.A. Weekly (“Bigotry is now in the open,” “Embrace your inner pussy” and “White America couldn’t handle what black America deals with every day”) and please do rattle our souls. We still kind of want to wrestle our most irrational All Lives Matter friend, but trust that we won’t do it until we down somewhat productive pints at the bar afterwards.

Turning Emotion To Melody w/Charles Calandra/Leah Rothe Talks about music. They can sometimes be as inspiring as a concert itself, and that’s what Carrollwood Cultural Center is hoping for when composer Charles Calandra comes to their venue to talk about his life in the industry. The self-taught musician is also a practicing lawyer who attended the Valparaiso School of Law and is currently working on a pair of albums at Tampa’s famed Morrisound Recording studio. Anyone who would like to attend is being asked to RSVP to Aaron Washington by emailing [email protected] (Carrollwood Cultural Center, Tampa) INFO

Acoustic BBQ w/Lost Axis/Daniel Kushnir They’re back! After hitting New World’s Acoustic BBQ with in January, New York City’s Lost Axis have returned to bring some of their guitar driven, punk rooted stylings to our favorite patio. You bet your ass that we’re stoked to see the return of beloved songwriter Joe Popp (and his pal Shaugn O’Donnell on lead), and you know we’re excited to nom nom on Bird and Pat’s famous $5 plates of smoked deliciousness.
