SoundBytes: New Found Glory, Das Racist, Stars and more




-- Coming to the Ritz Ybor on Nov. 3: North Carolina prog-metal band Between the Buried and Me, above, alongside Animals as Leaders and TesseracT. Tickets are $20. Click here.

-- It's been a while since we've heard from pop-punk favorites New Found Glory, but according to their website, they'll be coming back to town soon. The group has a show listed for Oct. 17 at Jannus Live. No word on tickets, but we'll keep you posted.

-- Each fall, USF students get a big ol' welcome-back party called the USF Round-Up, featuring at least one big-name comic. This year, it'll be Ralphie May, at 7 p.m. Aug. 25 at the USF Track and Field Stadium. It's free for students, faculty, staff and guests, but there are usually some tickets available to the general public. Click here for all the details.

-- Lost in the excitement over Duran Duran coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Oct. 10 is the opening act: Modern rock hitmakers Neon Trees. An odd fit? Kinda. But we'll take it.

-- This may still be a secret, but we apparently know the first headliner of this year's Clearwater Jazz Holiday. Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue will play Coachman Park on Oct. 13, according to their website.

-- Tampa did get a show by Odd Future , so we suppose it would be in bad taste to complain that we didn't get a show by similarly effed-up rap collective Das Racist . Still, Orlando is getting 'em both. Das Racist will perform Oct. 7 at Firestone Live , on their way to the Langerado Music Festival in Sunrise. Tickets are $15.50-$20. Click here . ***UPDATE*** Well, looky here: Das Racist just announced a whole slew of tour dates, and it looks like St. Pete's State Theatre IS on the list, on Oct. 6! Good stuff. We'll keep an eye out for more details on this one.

-- And speaking of interesting hip hop concerts in Orlando: According to his website, on Oct. 8 (the very next night), Theophilus London will perform at the Social.

-- But wait, what's this, ANOTHER awesome Orlando show that isn't coming to Tampa? Stars at Firestone Live on Oct. 15? Geez, that one hurts. Tickets are $15. Click here.

-- Austin, Texas singer-songwriter Bob Schneider (Round and Round, 40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet) will perform Sept. 16 at Skipper's Smokehouse, as part of WMNF-88.5's annual birthday celebration. Tickets are $20-$25. Click here.

-- Ska punks Big D and the Kids Table are coming back to Tampa, this time at the Orpheum on Oct. 19. Tickets are $12. Click here.

-- More dubsteppy goodness coming to the Ritz Ybor: Excision with Cookie Monsta (no, not that one) on Sept. 9. Tickets are $20. Click here.
