MillionYoung w/Gat & Cris/Fr33back/Betty Dawl/more It feels like the Bay area has been seeing a lot of Mike Diaz lately, but we’ll gladly take all the visits from the Miami producer better known as Millionyoung. A new Small Black remix “Camoflauge” is a good reason to check back in, and the bonus at this show is the addition of Matt Reisinger's Fr33dback project, Gat & Cris and especially Betty Dawl who is one of Tampa’s most undersung live performers. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO

Brewhouse Sessions w/Vern Senior/KatAnna/Marcel P. Black/Mike Mass Hey look, Hidden Springs nice live music experiment keeps fermenting quietly in the background — and Tampa Heights is better off because of it. This show finds a pair of solid Tampa Bay emcees (Vern Senior, Mike Mass) joining Baton Rouge’s Marcel P. Black and Brandon singer-songwriter Kat Baumback for a free show in the back of the brewhouse. Free show and the best suds on Franklin Street? We’re in. (Hidden Springs Ale Works, Tampa) INFO

Dangermuffin Funky folk from Folly Beach, South Carolina comes to this quirky Seminole Heights eatery for a Sláinte-licious St. Patrick’s Day show. Dangermuffin’s debut LP is called Beermuda, so you can take a stab at what kind of drink to buy them when you get there. (Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café, Tampa) INFO

Doo Wop Reunion w/Charlie Thomas’s Drifters/Jay Siegel’s Tokens/Larry Chance and The Earls/The Crests The “Ruth Eckerd Hall Experience” is in full effect on St. Patrick’s Day, and this not-so-little throwback bill of ‘50s and ‘60s doo-woppers is just part of a trio of shows that include a sold out gig from California’s Karla Bonoff (playing Ruth Eckerd’s adjacent Murray Theatre) and Canadian folkie Gordon Lightfoot (playing Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater). (Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater) INFO

TFO: Mahler's Resurrection Symphony w/Michael Francis Gustav Mahler’s Symphony no. 2 (aka the “Resurrection Symphony”) is one of the oddball Austrian composer’s most grandiose works, so it’s appropriate that the Florida Orchestra and director Michael Francis have tapped more than 250 musicians and members of the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay to bring it to life. Expect the piece’s “Death Shriek” and big ol’ finale to shine at this Idlewild Baptist Friday performance that repeats itself on Saturday in St. Pete (Mahaffey Theater) and again on Sunday in Clearwater (Ruth Eckerd Hall). (Idlewild Baptist Church, Tampa) INFO

Anvil w/Night Demon/Graveshadow Watching “Anvil! The Story of Anvil” never really gets old (although we prefer “Spinal Tap”), and anyone who also needs maximum Canadian metal in their real life can get their fix on Friday when the group hits State Theatre to check in with their Bay area fans and the snowbirds who never left.
