Sublime With Rome, Matisyahu, Cypress Hill coming to England Brothers Bandshell Park in Pinellas Park
Wherever this show ends up taking place, we can safely say we didn't see it coming.
According to various websites, Sublime With Rome are returning to Tampa Bay for a concert on Sept. 1. (That's the day after the Republican National Convention, so all you pro-weed hippies planning to protest the RNC can hacky-sack right on over.) They'll be joined by the Dirty Heads, Cypress Hill, Matisyahu and Pepper, in essence creating one of the most laid-back, beach-vibey, suds 'n' bud-friendly festivals of the summer.
Now the interesting part: Where is this show taking place?
According to ticket distributor TicketFly, promoter Fat Harry Productions, radio partner 97X and Cypress Hill, the concert is scheduled for, of all places, England Brothers Bandshell Park in Pinellas Park. According to Matisyahu, Pollstar and Pepper's Facebook page, the event is taking place at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg. Neither Sublime With Rome, the Dirty Heads nor Pepper have the event listed on their website at all -- although Sublime With Rome DOES have it on their Facebook page.
In other words: This collection of stoner-reggae-rock-rap artists somehow does not have all their s--- together. Shocker.
Right now, we're told it's set for England Brothers Bandshell Park. Tickets are going for $27-$99.50 on TicketFly. Click here to get 'em ... but don't be surprised if a change of venue is in the works.
