Art Department set to paint The Kennedy in Tampa with dubby house and techno

It’s a rare non-Miami show in Florida for the Canadian DJ.

Johnny White’s back hurts (the Canadian DJ better known as Art Department had to cancel a gig in Holland last weekend). It might be from the heavy lifting he’s been doing since his No. 19 Music label became a one-man show, but we hope he’s feeling better before this SoHo set where he’ll bring an out-of-the-box approach to dance music (think heavier, dubby house and techno) to the floor.

Art Department w/Julian Palacio/Deep Print/John Gaudy b2b Suddenly Strange/Tridvsolo/3OfUs. Fri., July 20, 10 p.m. $25 & up. The Kennedy, 2408 West Kennedy Boulevard, Tampa.
