SoundBytes: Primus, Rachel Goodrich, Civil Twilight and more
-- We love Miami expat folk-pop janglist Rachel Goodrich. (We're sticking with that description, and don't think she'll mind it. She was just profiled by Vogue. And months after moving to Los Angeles, she's returning to Florida with a show at Crowbar on March 24. Tickets are $5-$8. Click here.
-- Primus at Ruth Eckerd Hall? One wonders if the stately concert venue isprepared for the bass-slapping onslaught of Wynona's Big Brown Beaver. And yet Primus is in fact coming there, on June 7. Tickets go onsale at noon Friday (3/11) for $29.50-$39.50. Click here for details.
-- According to their website, buzzworthy South African rock band Civil Twilight is coming to the State Theatre on April 27, alongside One Eskimo and A Silent Film. No ticket info just yet, but we'll keep an eye out.
-- We have the lineup for WMNF's second annual Talking Animals Festival, April 3 at Lowry Park in Tampa, and as locals go, it's a doozy: Ronny Elliott, Magadog, Damon Fowler, the Sandy Atkinson Band, Bird Street Players, Sons of Hippies, Lauris Vidal and Kelley McCrae, Rayzilla's PBS, Dog Peter Pat, Tribal Style, the Sun Society and the Dirty Spoons and Trash Revue. Click here for the full details.
-- As always, you can't get into the Aussie Bash, the kickoff party to the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am, which takes place April 11-17 at TPC Tampa Bay in Lutz. It's for sponsors, VIPs and invited guests only. But if you're a sponsor, or a VIP, or an invited guest, and you have a ticket to the Aussie Bash, we can tell you that LoCash Cowboys will be headlining this year's party at the A La Carte Pavilion in Tampa.
-- Oh dear lord, the Florida Democratic Party is getting in on the concerts game, selling ticket packages to St. Pete Times Forum shows by Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks and more. This is bound to end well. Click here for details.
