97X Backyard BBQ lineup: Panic at the Disco, Sick Puppies, The Airborne Toxic Event and more


Let it never be said that the fine folks at 97X never did anything for you.

For their annual Memorial Day Backyard BBQ, the alt-rock radio station is bringing in a (borderline) Next Big Thing-worthy lineup -- and not only that, the show is free. Yes, F-R-E-E.

The lineup: Panic at the Disco (above), Sick Puppies, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Airborne Toxic Event, Awolnation, Hugo and Tampa's own Marksmen. Joining them will be two local bands, upon which you the loyal reader can vote by clicking here.

The show starts at 11 a.m. May 28 at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, and there will be all kinds of games, cornhole, volleyball, prizes, beer, barbecue and so much more. Admission is free, but you do need a ticket (find a ticket drop location here).

Did we mention this show is free? Go. You have no excuse.
