SoundBytes: SBTRKT, Sponge, Tank and more
-- Well whoa now, this is unexpectedly amazing: The masked British DJ/producer cipher known as SBTRKT -- a favorite of Radiohead and Drake, among others -- is coming to Orpheum in Ybor City, according to Consequence of Sound. Tickets are $16-$20, and they'll go onsale via Daddy Kool on Feb. 3. This is going to be a seriously interesting show. (Between now and then, if you want to sound cool, it's pronounced "subtract.")
-- And hey, look at this: Side Splitters in Tampa has booked two interesting acts in the coming months. Former SNL star Tim Meadows will perform there March 29-April1 (tickets are $20-$27), and the delightfully dirty Amy Schumer will be there April 19-21. Click here for details on both shows.
-- Cool twist for the monthly Rock the Park event at Curtis Hixon Park in Tampa: A national artist will be there on March 1. Brooklyn singer-songwriter Christopher Paul Stelling will perform.
