SoundBytes: Kool Keith, 3OH!3, Robert Earl Keen and more
-- If you were at Friday's John Mayer concert at the St. Pete Times Forum, you might have noticed a photographer sneak out onstage near the end of John's set. He took the excellent photo above, which is now the background image for John Mayer's Twitter page. (Notice the Lightning logo in the upper left-hand corner!) He must have thought the show went well, based on that photo and this tweet.
-- Oooh, lookee here, a hip-hop show all the hop-hipsters can get behind! Kool Keith at Czar, on March 14. Tickets are $19.50. Click here for the deets. (Also, people, let's work hard to get the phrase "hop-hipsters" off the ground. We worked really hard on it. Seriously, we don't ask for much.)
-- Grammy nominee George Lopez and Soundcheck lookalike Vince Gill are among the early celebrity commitments to this year's Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am in Tampa. Maybe we'll finally get to meet Vince!
