LMFAO's Sky Blu coming to The Venue in Clearwater
There's been some debate lately about which song is the "summer anthem of 2011." Some say it's Katy Perry's Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.). Others say it's Pitbull's Give Me Everything. Others insist it's Britney Spears' I Wanna Go.
Personally, we thought LMFAO had this thing sewn up weeks ago. We've been hearing Party Rock Anthem EVERYWHERE for the last two months. The dance-pop-hip-hop jam is insanely catchy, insanely popular and insanely dumb -- all important qualifications for any Official Jam of Summer. This month it hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
While LMFAO isn't coming anywhere near Tampa Bay this summer, we are getting a consolation prize: One half of the duo, Sky Blu -- otherwise known as the dude who DOESN'T wear those wacky-looking glasses -- will perform a DJ set at the Venue in Clearwater in a few weeks. He'll man the decks on Aug. 5, along with DJ Gemini and VJ Kidd Leow. Tickets are $10-$25, and the Venue believes this show will sell out, so you'd best get 'em early.
It's not the full LMFAO experience, but who cares? Sky Blu's gonna make you lose your mind; everybody just have a good time.
