Coming to Tampa/Orlando: Pitbull, All Time Low, Fountains of Wayne, the Decemberists and many, many more
Man, you leave the office for a couple of days, the entire Tampa Bay concert calendar goes nuclear. I had more than a dozen concert announcements waiting for me when I came back today. Some of them impact Tampa Bay, some of them don't.
To make things easy, here's a list of artists (aside from Lil Wayne) who this week announced concerts in Tampa Bay, and after the jump, a list of road-trip-worthy artists who announced shows in Orlando (like the Decemberists, above), as well as a few artists who just said, "Screw it, let's skip Florida altogether." Those guys suck.
