High Waisted w/Brother Cephus/DieAlps! High Waisted kind of run New York’s lower east side the way some of our favorite locals run Ybor City. The surf-pop quartet takes to the New World patio for this one where frontwoman Jessica Louise Dye (who also performs with the Hold Steady) will bring a kinetic stage presence and the band’s 2016 debut LP, On Ludlow, in the hopes of introducing this neck of the woods to their brand of ‘60s inspired lo-fi scuzz rock. Tampa’s own Brother Cephus and DieAlps! — who are both sitting on lots of new, still unreleased music — open the show. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) INFO

Urban Gypsies and One City mash-up Barney lives down the street from me and gives me starfruit. He's one of the coolest guys I know. He and his delightfully lovely wife, Leta, are who I think of when I think of the Urban Gypsies. I've started seeing Jon Arterton at a ton of events, and he's who I think of when I think of One City Chorus, a group of about 90 singers who believe singing builds community as well as bridges between races, cultures and creeds. One City sings about social justice, civil rights, diversity and equality; Urban Gypsies makes you want to, oh, I don't know, rush the stage (true, pathetic story: only stage I've ever gotten kicked off was Urban Gypsies) while they do their bluegrass-meets-disco-meets-tribal-meets-rock thing. I'm not sure what this mash-up is going to look like when One City and the Urban Gypsies climb on a stage together, but I can tell you for damn sure I'm not going to miss it. You shouldn't, either. If you're lucky, maybe Barney will bring you a starfruit. (Editor's note: CL Tampa makes no guarantees, express or implied, as to the availability of starfuit at the concert. Please do not rush the stage; it does not make you look cool.—Cathy Salustri (Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg) INFO

Phonogenics 101: Betty Davis They Say I'm Different Betty Davis took the reigns on her 1974 sophomore LP, and the results featured a more keys based approach to her sound that was bigger (but a little more blasé) than the one the funk singer put forth on her self titled debut the year before. This album discussion series led by Tampa singer songwriter Jeremy Gloff will discuss the merits of the album at this event. (Disco Dolls Studio, Tampa) INFO
