Things to do planner: USF Bullstock, vintage party, Broadway pops

ROCK ON: USF BULLSTOCK

The lineup for the University of South Florida's annual USF Week looks more like a rock festival. New Politics, shown above, Borns, the Maine and Mayday Parade will all perform at the college's grand finale party known as Bullstock. All four bands wouldn't look out of place at the Vans Warped Tour or 97X Next Big Thing, so the bill should draw a sizeable crowd to Bullstock, especially since the show is free and open to the public. The concert is at 5 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of the USF Sun Dome. A USF tradition, the party also includes a lineup of food trucks and past parties have featured bungee jumping, rock walls and a zip line. The winners of the campus Battle of the Bands competition will open the show in the Sun Dome parking lot, 4202 E Fowler Ave., Tampa.
