SoundBytes: Miguel, Gloriana, Adam Ant and more




-- Here’s an early Christmas present for pop and R&B fans: Miguel -- who has been tapped by some experts as a possible Best New Artist Grammy nominee -- is coming to The Venue in Clearwater on Dec. 18. There’s no ticket info just yet, but you can bet this will be a hot show. Click here.

-- Looks like we have our first bands booked of the (possibly) two-day Tropical Heatwave 2012: Funk-soul group Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolutino Orchestra, and Gainesville rock/R&B group The Righteous Kind.

-- Are you still swooning over your copy of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn soundtrack? Then you might be interested that one of the bands on that soundtrack, The Features, are coming to St. Pete. They'll perform at the Local 662 on Jan. 20. Tickets are $12.50. Click here.

-- Fans of the '80s will love this: Adam Ant is coming to the Hard Rock Cafe in Tampa on Feb. 9! Goody, goody, goody. Stuck in the '80s has the details.

-- It isn’t like Jimmy Buffett to skip Tampa when he schedules a tour through Florida, but so far, his "Welcome to Fin Land 2012 Tour" is only hitting Orlando. He’ll be at the Amway Center on Feb. 4. Tickets start at $35, and they go onsale Saturday.

-- How did Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry find massive success, yet Gloriana is still a bit of a 'tweener? You got us. But maybe we'll get some answers when the coed country group performs on Dec. 17 at the Dallas Bull. Tickets are $10-$15. Click here.

-- Is Gucci Mane performing at Vanity Ultra Lounge on Dec. 23? Possibly.

-- Looks like Big Sean is hosting an after party at AJA Channelside following his concert Dec. 8 at the Ritz Ybor. Click here.

-- Fresh off an appearance at the Orlando Calling festival, the Doobie Brothers have announced a gig at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Feb. 26. Tickets are $39.50-$87.50, and they go onsale at noon Saturday. Opening the show are fellow ’70s rockers Pablo Cruise (Love Will Find A Way). Click here.

-- Singer-songwriters Andy Grammer and Ryan Star will perform at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Feb. 24. Tickets are $17.50-$25. Click here.

-- The always witty David Sedaris is returning to the Tampa Theatre on April 19. Tickets are $37.50-$47.50. Click here.
