AWOLNATION performing free concert at the Ritz Ybor on March 3




Local rock station 97X is doijng their part to keep Tampa Bay a rock 'n' roll city. The past few years, they've staged free concerts around town by national acts like Panic at the Disco, Blue October, Paper Tongues, Sick Puppies and more. In most cases, they even invite local bands to open the show.

Coming soon: Electronic pop-metal outfit AWOLNATION, who have already played several free 97X-sponsored concerts in the past, will headline another "Freebie Weebie" show on March 3 at the Ritz Ybor. Local acts Guiltmaker and The August Name will open. Though the concert is free, you will need a ticket to get in, and you can pick them up at one of several ticket drops between now and showtime.

Last fall, we chatted with AWOLNATION mastermind Aaron Bruno about the group's hit song Sail and his unusual influences. Click here to read the interview.
