Mix 100.7 Acoustic Christmas: Goo Goo Dolls, The Fray, Michael Franti, ZZ Ward lead lineup at Mahaffey Theater

The 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball has become Clear Channel's signature event of the year in Tampa Bay. But you might be wondering: What about Mix 100.7? Shouldn't they get a signature event, too?

This year, they will. On Dec. 13, the adult alterna-pop station will host its second annual Mix 100.7 Acoustic Christmas at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg -- and this year, they're pulling out all the stops to make it a big-time show.

The Goo Goo Dolls, The Fray, Michael Franti and ZZ Ward will all perform stripped-down sets at the Acoustic Christmas, the station announced on-air today. Tickets will be available via pre-sale on Wednesday and Thursday, and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for details.

Much like Clear Channel's Jingle Balls, these sorts of acoustic holiday concerts are becoming more and more common around the country. In Orlando, or example, Mix 105.1 has a pair of shows coming up at the House of Blues: The Goo Goo Dolls and Sara Bareilles on Dec. 15 (click here) and the Backstreet Boys and Plain White T's on Dec. 17 (click here).
