SoundBytes: Mayday Parade, Modern English, Foster the People and more
-- We knew this would be a popular show. One of the year's breakout rock acts, Foster the People, sold out their show at the Beacham Theater on Sept. 20 ... so they're moving it to a larger venue, the House of Blues. All original tickets will be honored; the new tickets go onsale Friday. Click here.
-- According to our pals at Stuck in the '80s, Modern English have reunited to re-record their 1982 hit I Melt With You, and to celebrate, they've booked a show at a most unusual venue: The Venue in Clearwater. Click here for the details.
-- Speaking of the Bull: It'll host an official after party following the Brad Paisley concert on Sept. 9 at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre, with a special appearance and autograph signing by Jerrod Niemann. Click here for details.

-- Hey, look at this: Another one of tbt*'s 2011 Ultimate Local Artists is heading out on a national tour! First it was Marksmen hitting the road with Eisley, now it's Alexander and the Grapes opening up for their pal Matt Hires. There is one local show: Nov. 9 at the Orpheum in Ybor City. Kudos, Grapes!
