Coolio, Dev, Shwayze coming to Shephard's Beach Resort in Clearwater Beach

Why are we so entertained by the notion that Coolio is coming to Shephard's Beach Resort in Clearwater Beach? He'll headline the club's annual Old Skool Labor Day Weekend on Sept. 4. So get ready for a fantastic voyage. Click here for details.

But Mr. Gangsta's Paradise isn't the only big name coming to Shephard's in the coming months. In fact, two other decent names will hit the venue for holiday weekends in May and July:

-- On Memorial Day weekend, beach-hoppers Shwayze will headline a set that also features DJ Skribble and Clinton Sparks. The gig is on May 29, with lots of drink specials. Click here for details.

-- And on July 3, rising pop star Dev -- best known for singing the hook on Far East Movement's Like A G6, as well as her own hit, Bass Down Low -- will take the stage, along with the Jump Smokers. Click here for details.
