SoundBytes: City and Colour, Hank 3, Steel Pulse and more
-- Looks like hellbilly hellraiser Hank III (a.k.a. Hank Williams III) is returning to St. Petersburg with a show at the State Theatre March 10. Tickets are $20. Click here. (Fun fact: This show will take place the same week Hank Williams Jr. plays the Florida Strawberry Festival.)
-- Canadian indie rock outfit City and Colour, who scored a couple of breakout songs with Fragile Bird and Weightless, will perform June 5 at the Ritz Ybor. Ticket details haven't been announced, but the group has been selling out clubs around the country, so expect this to be a hot one.
-- This year's festivals are starting to take shape. If you're up for a drive, Jack White is headlining this year's Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Ala., on May 18. Can someone PLEASE convince him to play a solo show in Tampa Bay, while he's in the southeast?
-- Guitar nerds won't want to miss this one: Buckethead and That 1 Guy are reviving their two-man tag team known as Frankenstein Brothers, and will perform at the State Theatre March 11. Tickets are $21-$26. Click here.
-- Hot Tuna will perform an acoustic concert on July 14. Ticket start at $32.50 and go onsale at noon Saturday (2/11).
