On a day when Bush, Live and Our Lady Peace are playing Tampa, this seems an especially appropriate concert announcement: Third Eye Blind is coming to Jannus Live.
The late-'90s rock outfit led by Stephan Jenkins will play the storied St. Petersburg courtyard for what appears to be the first time ever on Nov. 14. Smallpools will open the show. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Aug. 23. Click here and here for details.
While best known for alt-rock hits like Semi-Charmed Life and Jumper, Third Eye Blind will be touring behind their forthcoming album Screamer, whose title track (featuring Sleigh Bells's Alexis Krauss) is pretty good! But then, your humble writer has long made no bones about his Third Eye Blind fanaticism -- click here and here and here and so on -- so that take should come as no surprise.
This is also a good time to revisit our interview this week with Our Lady Peace singer Raine Maida, since that's the band who opened for Third Eye Blind in 1998, at the first concert I ever saw. Perhaps you've heard me mention it.
