Tampa Bay live music Tuesday with Hundred Days, Rent Strike and more

Josh Harty visits Crooked Thumb Brewery, too.


✔️= Critic's Pick

✔️ Hundred Days A new cast album is a good way to touch the surface of Hundred Days, but it’s best to experience the story in real life, since the production’s masterminds — real-life married couple Abigail and Shaun Bengson — have turned the idea of an off-Broadway musical on its head by tapping into personal experiences and creating their own hybrid indie-folk and theater performance which explores how folks might love each other if they knew that their time to be together was extremely limited. The run kicks off on Tuesday, but Hundred Days will be in town until March 24, which gives you what feels like 100 chances to see it. (Jaeb Theater at David A. Straz Center for the Performing Arts, Tampa) INFO

✔️ Josh Harty w/Blake Daniels/Joshua Reilly Joshua Reilly’s songs are some of the most solid in Tampa Bay, and his taste is pretty damn good, too. That’s why you probably won’t go wrong when the Pinellas-by-way-of-Illinois songwriter welcomes a North Dakota songsmith, Josh Harty, to play alongside one of CL’s favorite artists from 2018, Blake Daniels.

Rent Strike w/She/Her/Hers/Community Couch/Jon Coleman This is another Tampa DIY house show, and it features a pair of Michigan-based acts — activist folk-punk songwriter John Warmb (aka Rent Strike) and queercore pop-punk strummer She/Her/Hers — joining two Tampa Bay locals (Community Couch, Jon Coleman) for an early-ish gig where you need to park in the front yard and not the street.
