Tonight: Get jammy on the beach with a free Heavy Pets show



Looking for a cheap way to kill one ... two ... three ... oh, who knows how many hours at the beach? Head to Clearwater Beach, where Ft. Lauderdale jam-band the Heavy Pets will play a free show at the Beach Bar, 454 Mandalay Ave. at 9 p.m. tonight.

The Pets played Bonnaroo and moe.down this year, and the headlined the Last Daze of Summer Fest in New York, so they're no hippie slouches -- which you probably know, considering they stop at Dunedin Brewery fairly often.

Their mix of jazzy reggae and jam-funk will go over well on the white sands of Clearwater Beach. The Beach Bar has been hosting a slew of funky jam bands all fall, from Poetry N' Lotion to Christie Lenee and the Funkgrass Groove. Still to come at the venue:

Nov. 5: Cope

Nov. 12: The Funky Seeds

Nov. 22: Diocious
