SoundBytes: Lady Gaga, Against Me!, the Black Angels and more
-- Tampa Bay music fans got a taste of Laura Jane Grace when she performed solo at September's 97X Green Room: One Night Only concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Now she'll be back with her band, Against Me!, for the first time since she went by Tom Gabel. Against Me! will perform at the State Theatre on Jan. 24 alongside the Sidekicks and the Shondes. The show will take place just a few days after the release of their new album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Tickets are just $15. Click here.
-- Another big show coming to the State Theatre: electro-pop-rock outfit Breathe Carolina on March 15. Jonny Craig, Ghost Town and Divided By Friday will open the show. Tickets are $15. Click here.
-- And here's one that a lot of indie rock fans will be excited about: Texas psychedelic rockers the Black Angels will perform at the State Theatre on Feb. 26, with singer-songwriter Roky Erickson opening. Tickets are $20-$22. Click here.
-- The Devil Wears Prada's concert on Sunday at the Ritz Ybor has been moved to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg. Click here.
-- Lady Gaga will kick off her forthcoming "artRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour" in Florida ... but she's only got one show scheduled in the state, and it's May 4 at the BB&T Center in Ft. Lauderdale. Doesn't she owe Tampa fans a concert after canceling her gig her last March due to injury? Maybe she'll add some dates later.
