This Friday, get experienced on Jimi Hendrix's birthday



Last week it was Nirvana. This week the folks at Encore in Ybor City have something a little more classic cooked up.

In honor of what would be Jimi Hendrix's 67th birthday on Friday, Encore is hosting the Jimi Hendrix Birthday Experience, featuring Tampa Hendrix tribute group Purple Haze. Doors open at 9 p.m.; tickets are $10. Click here for details.

Fun fact: Hendrix did play Tampa back in the day. That's him above, performing at Curtis Hixon Hall in August 1968.
