SoundBytes: Sharon Van Etten, Frank Caliendo, Harry Belafonte and more
-- We very much wish we could tell you singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten was coming to Tampa, but alas, she'll be in Orlando on Oct. 28, playing The Social with Damien Jurado. The Orlando Sentinel says tickets are $13-$15. Click here.
-- Two interesting comedy shows to tell you about. The first is Frank Caliendo on Aug. 24-25 at the Improv in Tampa. That's right before the Republican National Convention, and you know one of Caliendo's most popular impressions is of George W. Bush. So don't be surprised if he's got something special cooking for the RNC. (Tickets are $30-$35; click here.)
-- This is cool: Tampa's Tallhart have just released a limited-edition split 7" with British singer-songwriter Ed Tullett, featuring their cover of Peter Gabriel's I Grieve. Click here to listen via Filter magazine, and click here to order.
