SoundBytes: Bombay Bicycle Club, Big K.R.I.T., Gavin DeGraw and more
-- This is both awesome and a bummer: One of the most intriguing new bands we've heard the last couple of years, Bombay Bicycle Club, is touring in Florida ... but unfortunately, at this point, they're only coming to Orlando. Their website says they'll play the Social on Oct. 5 (the Social's website, meanwhile, says Sept. 5, but we expect that to be remedied soon). Tickets are $17-$20.
-- Buzzworthy rapper Big K.R.I.T. is coming to the Ritz Ybor on Aug. 12, according to his website. No ticket details just yet.
-- Anyone seen Gavin DeGraw around Tampa Bay recently? He's apparently in town rehearsing for a tour, and will be doing a private performance at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on May 17. Mix 107 and 93.3-FLZ are offering listeners a chance to get in on the action. Click here for details.
