Two Door Cinema Club, City and Colour, Drive-By Truckers coming to the Ritz Ybor
Every now and then a venue will go on a tear and announce a handful of cool shows in rapid succession. This week, it looks like the Ritz Ybor is that venue. Let's recap:
-- First, Drive-By Truckers will return to the Ritz for another night of whiskey-soaked anthems. The rough 'n' tumble alt-country favorites will play there on April 12. Tickets are $20.
-- We told you yesterday that City and Colour is performing at the Ritz, but it's such a cool show that it bears repeating. The breakout Canadian indie rock act will be in Tampa on June 5. Tickets are $25, and they go onsale this week.
-- Just announced: Two Door Cinema Club will perform at the Ritz on June 6. The Irish pop-rock group opened for Tokyo Police Club at Crowbar last year, but this is their first headlining show in the area. Tickets are $21.50.
(What can we surmise from this? Well, considering Bonnaroo 2012 is scheduled for June 7-11, City and Colour and Two Door Cinema Club are likely our first tastes this year of Bonnaroo runoff. Looking forward to more of it!)
