News: Junior Boys, A Day To Remember, Copeland and more
Been a long time since we've rounded up some local music and concert headlines, so let's get a-bloggin'...
-- Thievery Corporation are coming to the Ritz Ybor on Oct. 10. Now it looks like there'll be an after-party, too, at the Roosevelt Arts Space, with DJ sets by Ancient Astronauts, Blenda, Dr. Um and Mr. Marley. Reduced admission for Thievery Corporation ticketholders. Go here for the details.
-- Tampa nerdcore rapper funky49 once recorded a tribute album to the Tampa Museum of Science and Industry. It was only a matter of time before Chicago's Fermilab National Accelerator Laboratory caught on. Steve "funky49" Rush recently visited the lab to deliver a lecture on hip-hop and shoot a video for the song Particle Business. Go here to get all the details on this crazy story.
-- Matt Hires' rise to national prominence continues with a 3-star review in People magazine for his album Take Us To The Start (which comes out Tuesday). You can check him out live when he plays an acoustic set Aug. 30 at Vinyl Fever. Go here for the details.
-- The Misfits are coming to Club Firestone in Orlando on Sept. 5. Tickets are $18-$21. They've got a week off from touring after that show, so maybe they'll try to squeeze in a show in Tampa Bay. The State Theatre, perhaps?
--And finally: "Inglourious Basterds > fruit roll-ups".
