Tropical Heatwave preview: L. Cave McCoy's picks


Singer-guitarist L. Cave McCoy is one half of GreyMarket, a Tampa dynamic that delivers danceable powerful rock, the type you scratch your head at when you realize it‚Äôs created by two people. They released the CD Some Orbits Will Never Decay (S.O.W.N.D.) late last year and got kudos all around. (Click here for more on the band.)

GreyMarket performs at 11 p.m. Saturday at New World Brewery as part of Tropical Heatwave. We asked McCoy which artists he's looking forward to seeing before the band takes the stage. Here's what he had to say:

"I enjoy the honesty of Will Quinlan and the Diviners (10 p.m., New World Brewery), and I haven’t had the chance to see his band in a long time. As for Quinlan, he’s got a real old soul for songwriting, in the vein of, say, Neil Young — the art of making a lot of song out of a small pile of chords. (Click here to listen to Quinlan's South San Pedro.)

"I’m also looking forward to the Modern Skirts (9:10 p.m., the Orpheum). We played with them a few years ago and they were great. I’m most interested in the Modern Skirts’ guitar player – he has a very George Harrison type of vibe and I enjoy his solos." (Click here to listen to the Modern Skirts' Soft Pedals.)
