SoundBytes: CHVRCHES, Lykke Li, Ty Segall and more
-- A big announcement for the Ritz Ybor this afternoon: Scottish indie-pop act CHVRCHES, who scored a breakthrough single with The Mother We Share, will be there on Oct. 6. Tickets are $23.50 and they go on sale Friday. (And if you're ordering by phone, please note that it's pronounced "churches," not "cha-vurches.") Click here.
-- Another big name in the world of European indie pop, the dusky chanteuse Lykke Li, will be at Orlando's House of Blues on Oct. 9. Tickets are $25 and they go on sale Friday. Click here.
-- Fuzzy punk singer-songwriter Ty Segall is coming to Epic Problem in Tampa on Sept. 12, with Wand and Tampa's own Jensen Serf Company opening. That's a pretty tight space for a guy with an international reputation -- he's playing huge clubs elsewhere on this tour -- so, y'know, mark your calendar and get your tickets ASAP. They're $16.75 through Daddy Kool; click here.
-- Tracy Morgan's devastating limo accident over the weekend hangs a huge question mark over all of his upcoming shows -- and today, we just found out that at least some of those shows are (or were) scheduled for Tampa. Morgan is booked at the Tampa Improv from Aug. 22-24, according to the Improv's website, though tickets are not on sale, so who knows if the show will still happen. Click here.
-- Aaron Carter at Crowbar. No, that's not a misprint. The younger Backstreet Bro will play an intimate solo concert at Ybor City's indie-rock haven on Nov. 21. Tickets are $17, or $67 with a meet-and-greet and signed poster. Click here.
-- In case you missed it -- or you weren't on the invite list -- tonight's secret show featuring Trash Talk and Odd Future cohort Left Brain is at Crowbar. Carry on!
