SoundBytes: Ke$ha, Old 97's, Lewis Black and more
-- Whenever we bring you news of a concert in Orlando, we ask ourselves: Is this concert big enough to draw a sizeable crowd up I-4 from Tampa, and therefore, does it deserve its own post? We wrestled with this one, but we don't think Ke$ha qualifies. But it's worth noting, we suppose, that her just announced "Get $leazy Tour" (sigh) will hit the House of Blues in Orlando on April 22. As you might notice, there are plenty of open dates around it -- so don't be shocked to see her in Tampa before or after that gig. Prepare yourselves.
-- In ACTUAL music news, the Old 97's are touring again! Not only that, but according to their website, they're coming to Skipper's Smokehouse on March 2! Sounds like a can't-miss show -- neither murder nor a heart attack will keep us from this one.
