Will Tampa metal gods Obituary pop up at Brass Mug’s Ralph Santolla memorial concert?

We’d settle for a John Tardy solo set though.

It’s been over a month since Obituary, Deicide and Sebastian Bach guitarist Ralph Santolla passed away after being left in a coma following a heart attack, but this public concert invites fans to join friends and family in celebrating the life, legacy and music of the late metal icon. An official lineup will not be released before the show, but there’s a pretty good chance that Obituary (or at least John Tardy) will take the stage at some point in the night.

Ralph Santolla Memorial Concert, Sat. July 21, 7 p.m. $15 Donation. Brass Mug, 1450 Skipper Rd., Tampa. facebook.com/brassmugtampa.
