SoundBytes: Rodney Atkins, The Band Perry, Bizzy Bone and more




-- Time for a little country fun south of the Skyway: Country singer Justin Moore will perform at the Bradenton country nightclub Joyland on Feb. 4. And singer-songwriter Rodney Atkins, above, will perform there on Feb. 11. Your move, Dallas Bull and the Round Up! Tickets are $15-$20. Click here.

-- And don't forget, the country-leaning Manatee County Fair kicks off Jan. 13. Your headlining entertainers include Darryl Worley and The Band Perry. Click here for a complete schedule.

-- Interesting venue alert: Orlando alt-glam-rockers Selby will perform an in-store set at Best Buy, 21415 U.S. 19 N, Clearwater from 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 18. Click here for details.

-- Speaking of Orlando (as it seems we often are these days), Sugarland just announced a behemoth tour with no dates listed for Tampa ... but a date in Orlando on Oct. 20. No venue was announced, but we can all assume it'll be the new Amway Center, right?

-- Bone Thugs-n-Harmony just came to the State Theatre in October. So where was Bizzy Bone? We're not sure, but we know he's coming back. He'll be at the State at 8 p.m. Jan. 30. Tickets are $15. Click here.

-- Also coming to the State: Lords of Acid on March 17. A Happy gothic-industrial St. Patrick's Day to all! Tickets are $18. Click here.

-- Nothing better in mid-February than a little reggae-rock-pop in the cool Florida air. Iration and Ballyhoo are performing at Jannus Live on Feb. 18. Tickets are $15, click here. Man, with this show, Slightly Stoopid and Fishbone, G. Love and Special Sauce and Rebelution, Jannus is becoming a hippie beach bum's paradise.

-- Finally: One of the area's top music blogs, NineBullets.net, is now one of the area's most interesting new radio shows. Check out Bryan Childs' Nine Bullets Radio at 10 p.m. tonight (1/6) on WMNF-88.5.
