Steve Earle coming to Orpheum in Ybor City
Ybor City's Orpheum is generally known for hardcore, metal and indie rock shows, with the occasional big-name curveball (Patrick Stump) thrown in to keep you guessing.
But we have to say, this one came out of nowhere.
This is being billed as a solo acoustic show with his wife, singer-songwriter Allison Moorer, so while you might be treated to alt-country classics like Copperhead Road, I Feel Alright and Hard-Core Troubadour, they'll be stripped-down versions. But that's fine by us -- Earle is probably a killer storyteller who will turn this into a brilliantly different night in Ybor City.
We did not ask specifically if Earle will be joined onstage by Bubbles from The Wire, but we assume that goes without saying.
