✔️ = Critic's Pick

✔️ Dave Hause If you’ve ever been obsessed with old-school punk and emo labels like Jade Tree Records or Fat Wreck Chords, then a pair of shows from Dave Hause is probably on your radar already. The 40-year-old songwriter has fronted a handful of bands and most famously manned the guitar and microphone for The Loved Ones — a Philadelphia-based outfit which never really broke up, but never really released anything after Distractions in 2009 (although a 2015 10-year reunion looked promising for a moment). Hause arrives solo this go ‘round, and he’ll play not one, but two nights in support of his 2017 Rise Records release, Bury Me In Philly, a collection of songs that puts Hause’s signature spit-shine on tales about the heartbreak, disappointment and joys of being part of the working class.

Florida Orchestra Coffee Concert: Latin Flair A late-in-the-morning Florida Orchestra concert fueled by coffee. Latin music — specifically Manuel de Falla’s Spanish Dance No. 1, Lecuona’s Andalucia and Bizet’s Carmen — will fill the air, and you’ll be back at the office before anyone notices you’re gone. (Mahaffey Theater, St. Petersburg)  INFO

The Florida Orchestra Presents Happy Hour Concerts Fiesta! A post-workday Florida Orchestra concert fueled by beer and booze. This time Gershwin’s Cuban Overture joins Lecuona and Bizet as Jeff Tyzik conducts the orchestra after concertgoers enjoy a happy hour show where a ticket gets you free libations care of Cigar City beer and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. The bar stays open throughout the performance, too, so don’t feel bad about getting up to re-up. (Ferguson Hall at David A. Straz Center For Performing Arts, Tampa)  INFO

The Young Something's Alex Bonyata and Bella Beyer are growing up and outgrowing folk

Rock The Park Tampa w/GoldenEra /The Young Something/Kolby Stancil Seminole Heights hip-hop jam band Golden Era (think the music of Nas, Jay-z, Biggie, 2pac, Eminem, Outkast or Nate Dawg when it comes to influences) comes to rap The Curt along with The Young Somethings, a literally young band which CL just profiled two weeks ago. NorCal singer-songwriter Kolby Stancil opens this installment of the always-free, pet-friendly outdoor concert series. (Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, Tampa) INFO

✔️ C Terroir005:solera Terroir New Music Group returns to the site of its first concert for “solera,” and this celebration of experimental sounds also serves as a welcoming event for the 2018 USF New-Music Festival and Symposium. There’s no cover, and the show is open to all ages. Those of age will be happy to know that each composition on the program will be paired with a specific local beer, and audience members 21 and up have the option to purchase individual beers or flights from the bar at their discretion.

Green Day’s American Idiot Not exactly live music, but there are some Green Day fanatics who read this paper. So here’s a reminder that mad Theatre of Tampa Bay is staging a 10-day run of this two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical based on the band’s 2004 Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, which took on the tumultuous task of tackling topics surrounding a search for meaning in a post-9/11 world.
