SoundBytes: Three 6 Mafia, Ziggy Marley, The Glitch Mob and more
-- Remember when Three 6 Mafia won an Oscar? That wasn't a dream, was it? The Memphis rap group behind It's Hard Out There For A Pimp is coming to the Kennedy in Tampa on April 16. Tickets are $10-$20. Click here for details.
-- Czar has been on fire this spring, with shows by Yelawolf, !!!, Matt and Kim and, coming July 17, electronic trio The Glitch Mob, with Phantogram and Com Truise. Tickets are $13, click here to get 'em. Consequence of Sound has tour dates.
-- Interesting venue alert: Reggae singer Ziggy Marley is playing the Stadium Green Iguana in Tampa on April 29. Strange! Although Paul Oakenfold did play there last fall, so it's not an unprecedented concert venue. Tickets are scheduled to go onsale for $27.50 on Saturday (3/26) via Ticketmaster, but we don't see a link yet. You can always call (813) 868-7600 for details.
-- How cool is this? Twenty-three-year-old Siobhan Harley, one of the campaign workers who helped get Bob Buckhorn elected mayor of Tampa, is a musician. "Growing up in Pinellas, Harley attended St. Petersburg Catholic High for two years, then moved to California to try her hand as a touring folk and alt-rock musician. She played piano and guitar with a mostly girl group called the Milkman's Kids, and at one point played a leg of the Warped Tour." Who knew Bob Buckhorn had such discerning taste?

-- Good news, Michael Jackson fans: The April 1 show by tribute act Who's Bad at Jannus Live is now free, instead of $10. If you already bought tickets, you can get a refund at point of purchase. Click here for details.
-- So ... is anyone gonna be in Washington D.C. this week? That appears to be the closest location that Radiohead's "newspaper," The Universal Sigh, will be distributed.
