SoundBytes: No Age, Eisley, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi and more




-- One of the highlights of working on this Skipper's Smokehouse story was seeing great photos of headlining artists from years ago. Skipper's brass still has photos of a teenage Derek Trucks and a much younger Susan Tedeschi performing there years and years ago. This, of course, was years before they got hitched and became the first couple of the blues. On Dec. 29, you can see them together when they perform at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Tickets are $25-$69.50, and they go onsale Friday. Click here.

-- The first big hipster concert of 2011 is coming to Orlando: L.A. fuzz-freaks No Age, at Backbooth, on Jan. 19. Tickets are $12-$14. Click here.

-- Nerdcore time! MC Chris is coming to the Social in Orlando on Nov. 16. Tickets are $12-$14. Click here.

-- Math-rockers (or should that be geography-rockers?) Maps & Atlases are coming to Tampa. Check 'em out Nov. 7 at Crowbar. Tickets are $10-$12. Click here.

-- Are we crazy, or was there a point a few years ago when people thought Eisley might be the next big thing? Maybe we dreamed that. At any rate, Eisley will be at Crowbar on Oct. 15. Tickets are $14. Click here.

-- And if you feel like getting down and bluesy with it: The Lee Boys, Stanton Moore Trio with Anders Osborne and Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band are all coming to Crowbar, on Oct. 23, Oct. 29 and Dec. 12, respectively. Click each date for more details.

-- During their concert Saturday in Tampa, why didn't Kings of Leon's Caleb Followill tell us he got engaged? Dude should learn to share.

-- Leonard Skinner, the inspiration for the band name Lynyrd Skynyrd, died Monday in Jacksonville. This really happened.
