SoundBytes: Bat for Lashes, Emeli Sande, Flux Pavilion and more
-- Bat for Lashes will open for Depeche Mode on Sept. 14 at the Live Nation Amphitheatre in Tampa, according to Pitchfork. Considering the goth-pop chanteuse is one of those acts you'd rarely expect to find in Florida, we consider this a coup.
-- A few big British acts are coming to Orlando, but not Tampa: Bloc Party at the Beacham on May 17 (click here), Charli XCX on June 6 at the Social (click here) and Emeli Sande on July 2 at the House of Blues (click here).
-- Rolling Stone caught up with Tampa Bay's own Juliet Simms to ask about her time on the Warped Tour and her relationship with Black Veil Brides' Andy Biersack. Click here.
