SoundBytes: Larry the Cable Guy, Mindless Behavior, Icona Pop, David Liebe Hart and more

-- Hands down, the weirdest show of the summer: David Liebe Hart, above, and James Quall, the oddball singer-comic-entertainers made famous on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, are coming to Crowbar on July 2 for what is being described as "a set of puppetry, standup comedy, impressions, raps and songs!" Tickets are $10. Click here.

-- Speaking of comedy that's not for everyone: Larry the Cable Guy will return to Ruth Eckerd Hall for two shows on Oct. 12. Tickets are $49.75-$100. Click here.

-- If you miss Twenty One Pilots at the 97X Backyard BBQ on May 25, good news: They'll be joining Panic at the Disco as the support on Fall Out Boy's "Save Rock and Roll Tour," which hits the USF Sun Dome on Sept. 29. Not sure how "rock and roll" the synth-pop/hip-hop duo is, but that'll no doubt help ensure this show sells well.

-- Memorial Day weekend might not be the best time to launch a new music mini-festival, what with the Sunset Music Festival and 97X Backyard BBQ on May 25, but 93.3-FLZ is doing it anyway. The station's Memorial Day Live 2013 will bring a weekend of pop acts to Shephard's in Clearwater Beach from May 24-27, including Iyaz and the Cataracs on Saturday, May 25; and Jason Derulo, Nikki Williams, Katy Tiz and DJ Skribble on Sunday, May 26. Click here for details.

-- Pop/R&B boy band Mindless Behavior is reportedly coming to the Straz Center in Tampa on Aug. 11 with the OMG Girlz and Coco Jones, though ticket details are scarce.

-- Icona Pop, the Swedish electro-pop duo behind the ridiculously catchy summer hit I Love It, is coming to the Ritz Ybor on Aug. 18. Tickets are $19.50-$22, and they'll go onsale at 10 a.m. Friday.

-- Guitar master Joe Satriani will return to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Sept. 11. Tickets are $38-$81. Click here.

-- Tampa death metal icons Obituary will perform at the Orpheum on June 8 with Druid Lord and Singod -- and not only that, but the concert will be streamed live in HD around the world. Tickets are $10. Click here for info.

-- The Hard Rock Cafe's "Treasures of the Hard Rock" traveling exhibit will return to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tampa from June 14-22, bringing with it such items as John Lennon's glasses and Kurt Cobain's notebook. Click here for info.
