SoundBytes: Bjork, Maren Morris, Lil Uzi Vert, H.E.R. and more

-- Road trip to Miami? Bjork is coming to Miami for what's billed as her "first-ever Florida appearance" during this year's Art Basel. We know that's not exactly true -- she played in Tampa with the Sugarcubes back in the day. But as a solo act, yeah, maybe, this could be history in the making. Either way, her DJ gig on Dec. 5 at Mana Wynwood should still be a spectacle. Tickets are $75 and up. Click here.

--Country star Maren Morris will officially open for One Direction's Niall Horan next Sept. 22 at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. Click here.

-- Lil Uzi Vert has dropped off the bill for this year's Wild 94.1 Last Damn Show on Nov. 3 in Tampa, which is a bummer for anyone hoping to hear XO Tour Llif3 live. The good news is he and Playboi Carti are teaming up for a tour that'll hit the Orlando Amphitheater at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on Dec. 2. Tickets are $35. Click here.

-- Mysterious and highly buzzable R&B singer H.E.R. is performing at the Orpheum on Dec. 3. Tickets are $23 and up. Click here.

-- Good news: Cloud Nothings and Talib Kweli have been added to the lineup for the Et Cultura festival, Nov. 15-19 in St. Petersburg! But bad news: Hanni El Khatib has dropped off the bill. Oh well. Click here.

-- Robb Bank$ is performing at Transitions Art Gallery at the Skatepark of Tampa on Jan. 4. Tickets are $20 and up. Click here.

-- American Idol alum Crystal Bowersox is performing at the Attic in Ybor City on March 11. Tickets are $35 and up. Click here.
