Silversun Pickups playing free concert at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg
This year's 97X Next Big Thing was kind of light on traditional guitar rock. To make up for that, 97X is going to let the guitar rock rip with a free show to kick off the new year.
Silversun Pickups will play a free concert for 97X on Jan. 6 at Jannus Live, the station announced Wednesday.
All you have to do to get in is show up for a free pass at one of numerous ticket drop locations between now and Jan. 6. The first 50 people in line get a free pair, and the station will raffle off one more pair once those are gone. The drops kick off Friday in Gulfport. Click here for details.
The L.A. indie rockers, known for hits Panic Switch and Lazy Eye, haven't played Tampa Bay since Next Big Thing 2012 -- but at that show, they were without then-pregnant bassist Nikki Monninger. So this long-awaited return, in support of new album Better Nature, should be worth the wait.
