SoundBytes: Guster, The Ettes, The Dead Kennedys and more




-- Guster is coming to the House of Blues in Orlando on Nov. 5. Guster! Man, that takes us back to our sack-hacking college days. Click here.

-- We thoroughly enjoyed The Ettes when they performed at this year's Tropical Heatwave. The ladyfronted garage-punk band returns to Tampa Bay on Nov. 24 with a gig at the Local 662. Tickets are $10. Click here.

-- And hey, guess who else is returning to Tampa Bay? Soundcheck faves Gardening Not Architecture! Sarah Saturday will be at Fly Bar in downtown Tampa on Nov. 4. Click here.

-- Possibly the best New Year's Eve show of the year: Punk legends The Dead Kennedys, Dec. 31 at the State Theatre. Tickets are $25. Click here.

-- Looks like Harry Connick Jr. turned out for Sunday's Bucs-Saints game at Raymond James Stadium. Click here for a photo gallery of celebs at the game.

-- Lakeland's excellent Mouse FireBroken up!

-- Social Distortion, Nov. 12, Jannus Live: Sold out!

-- A new Big Cheese video is always a wonderful thing on a Monday morning. It's called Krispy Kreme, and it's a parody of Nelly's Just A DreamHave at it, dude!

-- Is Michelle Shocked being managed by Murray Hewitt now? Because it seems like she's on an Interesting Buildings Tour. (Can the Lowry Park Bandshell be far behind?) Following her show at the Beach Theatre, Shocked will now be performing at Craftsman House in St. Petersburg on Nov. 11. Michelle will hang out and sign CDs, too. Click here for the details.

-- Stuck in the '80s has launched a concert guide for Tampa Bay music fans who are, let's say, stuck in the '80s. Click here.

-- Teenage Disney pop-rock sensations Allstar Weekend are coming to the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Dec. 10, alongside Stephen Jerzak, The Scene Aesthetic and Action Item. Tickets are $15. Click here.

-- Half of Copeland is now a band called States. Here's what's going on with them, including a few shows.

-- Big comic Ralphie May is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on April 16. We mean "big" as in his stature as a comedian, not, you know, BIG. But that too. (We're just making this worse. We'll shut up now.) Tickets are $29.50. Click here
