Tonight in live music; Propaganda listening party, Alejandro Escovedo, The Hummingbirds and more

No humpin' around.


Propaganda Listening Party You could always download Crooked, the new album from Propaganda, for free (thanks Humble Beast!), but you might want to shell out a few bucks for a private listening session with the charismatic hip-hop and spoken word artist. A meet and greet, Q&A, storyteller style discussion about the record plus a signed physical copy is included in the ticket, and you’ll get to experience a show in a non-traditional venue.

Alejandro Escovedo Skipper’s and community radio station WMNF 88.5 FM showcase a little Tex-Mex, when Mexican-American rocker Alejandro Escovedo takes the stage. For over 20 years, Escovedo has toured the country behind a blend of punk and roots rock around the country that has garnered praise from fans all over the globe. The Texas scene staple has collaborated with some big names along the way (Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, even Springsteen) and his latest Tampa performance comes on the back end of his tour supporting his 2016 album Burn Something Beautiful.
