SoundBytes: Yellowman, Electric Six, Sick Of It All and more
-- In case you missed it, St. Pete's fallen Idol, Michael Lynche, made the rounds Thursday in his hometown. Eric Deggans followed along. Here's a recap.
-- For those who aren't into arty disco psychedelia, try one of these other State Theatre shows: The Thrash and Burn Tour (Born of Osiris, Asking Alexandria, Kittie) on Aug. 5, or Sick of It All and the Street Dogs on Sept. 9.
