The Naked and Famous

-- Another indie pop outfit coming to the State Theatre: Coin on May 12. Tickets are $12 and up. Click here.

-- The Gasparilla Music Festival, March 11-12 in Tampa, has unveiled a handful of additions to its lineup: Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Michal Menert and the Pretty Fantastics, Twin Peaks, Phoebe Bridgers, the Freecoasters and Inkblot. The fest has also unveiled its day-by-day lineups -- as expected, Cage the Elephant and Ghostface Killah will headline on Saturday, and Ryan Adams and Chronixx will headline on Sunday. Click here.

-- Speaking of festivals, SunFest in West Palm Beach has unveiled its slate of concerts from May 3-7, and it's a doozy: Blink-182, Weezer, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Widespread Panic, Marshmello, Snoop Dogg, Steve Winwood, Tori Kelly, Flo Rida, Ziggy Marley, Dirty Heads, Breaking Benjamin and many, many more.

-- Classic rock heroes Boston will return to Ruth Eckerd Hall on April 18. Get your tickets ($58.75 and up) early, because their shows there typically sell out. Click here.

-- But if you were hoping to see actor and singer Cheyenne Jackson at the Straz Center on March 26, bad news: That show has been canceled "due to a scheduling conflict." Tickets will be automatically refunded.

-- One more change at the Straz: Two Club Jaeb acts, Darrin Bradbury and Joshua James, are switching dates. James will now perform on April 24, and Bradbury will perform on May 15. Click here.
