In case you missed it, every fucking show in Tampa Bay seemed to get cancelled or postponed over the last week. As our friends at the Tampa Bay Times Soundcheck blog pointed out in a Twitter conversation, last week's listings seemed to be nothing but #FakeNews.
Depeche Mode cancels September 13 show at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre
Today is no exception, with Damian Marley postponing a St. Pete set and Depeche Mode cancelling its Tampa date altogether (Depeche Mode opener Warpaint, isn't playing its Ybor City post-showDJ set either). Jason Richardson also cancelled his gig at Crowbar.
Good news is, some of the concert calendar has been salvaged, so pick up the pieces — and enjoy the shows that've survived — below.
Acoustic BBQ with Navin Ave./Shae krispinsky/Jeff Brawer/Rodney Smith /Derek Forrester BOTB-winning folk-rock outfit Navin Ave. anchors a lineup featuring four Bay area songwriters (Shae, Jeff, Rodey and Derek) who we think have been camped out at this Ybor City venue since it opened back up after the hurricane on Monday. No cover at this show, but bring money for food and drinks. (New World Brewery, Ybor City) INFO
Crowbar Comeback Show w/Jinx/Hometeam/Queen of Ex/Tony Handz/Vern Sr./DJ Qeys The hip-hop community is coming to turn the lights (and party) back on at a venue that's supported its artists at every turn. Expect a lot of hugs as Crowbar opens its doors back up after a rough week on cancellations, reschedules and hunkering down. Read more about how Crowbar took shelter from Irma here.
