SoundBytes: Parachute Musical, Jason Bonham, Mates of State and more




-- Fans of Ben Folds, Jack's Mannequin and Matt and Kim will want to check out Parachute Musical, above, when they return to Tampa Bay with a gig Oct. 11 at Crowbar. We can't recommend their catchy tune No Comfort enough. Tickets are only $7; get 'em here.

-- Some more awesome Langerado runoff to report: Married indie pop duo Mates of State have rerouted their tour to hit the Orpheum on Oct. 8. Tickets are $15.50. Tickets are onsale now via Daddy Kool.

-- Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience is coming back to Tampa Bay. The son of Zep's legendary drummer will bring his world-class tribute act to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Nov. 18. There's no ticket info yet, but keep an eye out here for details.

-- Country outlaw David Allan Coe is coming to Jannus Live on Dec. 8. Tickets are $15 advance. Click here.

-- Sorry, Miami, but your Identity Festival date that had been postponed to Sept. 30 due to Hurricane Irene has just been canceled for good.

-- Finally, many of you have probably been following the story of Ralph Ameduri, the longtime local musician (the Legendary JC's) who was shot and killed outside during an attempted robbery at a Winter Haven bar last weekend. (Click here for more on the story.) Police are offering a reward of $2,500 for information leading to the capture of his killer, and many of his local musician friends are soliciting donations to increase the size of the award, and hopefully entice more people to come forward. Click here and here to donate.
