Artist of the day: Won't Be Arsed

With a cheeky name like Won't Be Arsed, you can imagine this Tampa ska group is up for a little good-natured fun.

The group -- Matt Rooney (vocals, guitar), Ryan Harvey (bass), Mike Plante (drums) and Christian Costello (synths, sax, and backing vocals) got together this March after playing in various groups around Tampa Bay. They play "a mixture of ska, punk, reggae, jazz, synth and whatever else you can hear in our music," says Costello.

The band is plotting a little fun in the sun this summer, with a Florida tour encompassing shows in Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Fort Myers and, of course, Tampa. You can catch them at 7 p.m. May 28 at Transitions Art Gallery at the Skatepark of Tampa, alongside The Ambassy, Gonad Rehab, One Way! and Laughing Gas. Tickets are $7. Click here for details.
