Black Eyed Peas, LMFAO coming to Shephard's Beach Resort in Clearwater Beach
Still, that might be enough to solidify Shephard's as the premiere club in Tampa Bay during Spring Break 2013. The Black Eyed Peas' Taboo, above, will spin a DJ set there on March 10, while LMFAO's Sky Blu is booked there on March 24. And all throughout March and April, Shephard's will have DJs spinning for their weekly "Beach Party Sundays": Nova and A-Rock (March 3), DJ Skribble (March 17), DJ Deville (March 31), Lodato (April 7), Enferno (April 14) and Chris Moody (April 21).

With the Hawaiian Village closed and The Venue struggling to stay relevant, Shephard's may be the only club bringing in big-name DJs during Spring Break 2013. And it'll all take place in the middle of Shephard's nearly yearlong expansion effort, which will include 93 new hotel rooms, a parking garage and a 7,000-square-foot pool surrounded by VIP cabanas.
Look for more details soon on Shephard's website.
