SoundBytes: Marc Maron, Tom Green, Mother's Finest and more


-- Well, this is sincerely bumming news: Marc Maron, host of the tremendous comedy podcast WTF, has canceled his upcoming shows at the Tampa Improv on May 25-27. No reason was given for the cancellation. Instead, that weekend we'll get ... Judy Tenuta? Oh, lovely.

-- Speaking of blasts from the comedic past, Tom Green is returning to the Tampa Improv on July 22-24. Cover your cheese, lest you get his bum on it. Click here for details.

-- No edition of Ticket Window this week, as the only major shows going onsale are Martin Lawrence (June 24 at the Straz Center) and Taking Back Sunday (July 10 at the Ritz Ybor). Click here for details.

-- Oh, wait, there is one other show going onsale this week: The just-announced gig by New Orleans rapper Curren$y on June 15 at Jannus Live. He played Jannus a few months ago, and apparently it was such a hot show they just had to have him back. Tickets are $15-$30. Click here for details.

-- Late show addition at the Ritz Ybor: Southern rockers Ponderosa on May 11. Tickets are just $5. Click here to get 'em.

-- And more Ritzy goodness: Veteran Georgia funk-rockers Mother's Finest are performing at the Ritz on June 24. Tickets are $30-$55. Click here.

-- Alt-country group American Aquarium are returning to New World Brewery on July 7. Tickets are $7. Click here for details. (And click here for our review of the last time American Aquarium came to New World Brewery.)

-- Egypt Central had to drop off of the bill for this Friday's show with Cold at the State Theatre "due to a majof vehicle breakdown." All of their Florida dates have been canceled. Too bad.
