Has it been a few months since you've been able to get The Lumineers' Ho Hey out of your head? Then allow us to put it right back in there.

The Lumineers, whose foot-stomping, bar-room-singalong Ho Hey was one of the most unlikely (and inescapable) hits of 2012, will make their Tampa debut on Oct. 19 with a concert at the USF Sun Dome. Joining them are local favorites Dr. Dog (last seen blowing minds at the Gasparilla Music Festival) and Nathaniel Rateliff. Tickets start at $22.50, and they'll go on sale Friday.

We're still a long way from the #Bulls4Babel campaign's goal of having Mumford and Sons play the USF Sun Dome. But this seems like the next best thing. Ho Hey transformed the Colorado group into the biggest retro-Americana act this side of the Mumfords, with a pair of Grammy nominations and a Saturday Night Live guest spot under their belt. Ho Hey might just be the simplest song ever to lead to an arena tour.
