21

August

Once upon a short time ago, Tampa Bay couldn't score a gig by the Pyschedelic Furs if our very '80s lives depended on it. Now we've been blessed by a new love affair with the Brothers Butler. The Furs return again to Tampa Bay this fall -- Oct. 27 at St. Pete's State Theatre -- as part of their extensive 2012 tour that was just reported by Slicingupeyeballs.com.

I've said it here before and I'll do it again now: The Pyschedelic Furs are a can't-miss act these days, sounding as good as stage as ever and playing a catalog of tunes that deserve a whole lot more love. When a band opens up with their best-known hit, as the Furs did with Love My Way when I last caught them, you have to salute the moxy. And hell, it was the right move -- that wasn't even the highlight of the night by far.

Here are dates below. Find one near you and buy a ticket. And extra bonus, select dates include The Lemonheads! (Don't even get me started about missing the Sept. 29 show in Hollywood with the Go-Go's.)
