The inaugural Gasparilla Music Festival lineup revealed.

  • Deer Tick

Today, Board Members of the Gasparilla Music Festival finally made the official announcement about the bands that are playing the inaugural downtown outdoor music event, set to take over Curtis Hixon Park (and Kiley Gardens) on Sat., March 10.

Heading up the bill is popular Rhode Island indie folk/alt country rockers Deer Tick, which just released their fourth LP, Divine Providence, in October via Partisan Records; and Rebirth Brass Band, a lively New Orleans funk-jazz staple that's been kicking out the brassy jams since '82. Rebirth earned a Grammy nomination for 2011's Rebirth of New Orleans in the "Best Regional Roots Music Album" category. Tune in this Sunday to see if they've won...

Also on the GMF bill: Alvin Youngblood Hart, The Lee Boys, Have Gun Will Travel, Kaleigh Baker and more TBA. Click here to get your $15 GA tickets now; VIP passes also available for $75.
