Uproar Festival in Tampa, 2010

One of the summer’s biggest traveling rock shows, the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival is hitting the road again this summer. For heavy rock fans in the central Florida area, mark September 3rd on your calendar and check the Uproar Festival website for ticketing information later today. The event will again be held at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre and should be a lot of fun.

Heading the mainstage lineup,  Avenged Sevenfold is joined by  Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet For My Valentine and Escape The Fate while the Best Buy Music Gear Stage features Sevendust plus Black Tide, Art Of Dying and The Black Cloud Collective.


Ok, so its not a music event or concert, but its freaking Al Pacino. Scarface himself comes to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Tuesday, May 31st, and will offer a unique evening of entertainment.

According to the venue website
“The evening will include a creative process interview where Mr. Pacino will share his passion for acting and directing with film clips, including some never before seen footage, and portray some of his most memorable characters onstage. A large screen projection will enhance the experience making every seat in theatre a great seat. Sharing backstage tales from a lifetime in the world of theatre and film, Mr. Pacino will reveal the inner workings of his most personal work and will include a question and answer session from the audience.”

Check back on 6/1 for some shots from the evening. As of this post, some tickets were still available, but going fast.

Pop rock bad girl Britney Spears just announced a string of summer tour dates. Stops include San Jose, Chicago, Miami and Washington. Check out her website tour page for complete details.

Death Cab For Cutie fans are in for a double treat this spring. The indie rock band recently announced the May 31st release of their 7th CD, Codes and Keys and a line-up of North American tour dates beginning on May 18th in Toronto.

Tampa, FL natives NOT TONIGHT JOSEPHINE are pleased to reveal the title for their April 26th release. The record will be titled All on the Horizon, and is the band’s follow up to their 2009 EP, This Orphan Heart. The band teamed up with producer Brett Hestla (Creed, Dark New Day, Framing Hanley) in the studio for All on the Horizon. Brett Hestla is also credited for producing This Orphan Heart.

The new record, which builds upon the This Orphan Heart’s pop-informed modern rock with more mature songwriting and a slightly darker bend, was recorded over the summer of 2010. The band currently has the single ‘Carousel’ available for streaming at, and the music video is available for viewing here. Their upcoming single, a cover of Ace of Base’s popular tune ‘All That She Wants’, is set to hit radio airwaves and iTunes in late March. The cover has seen amazing reception from fans, especially on YouTube where the track has seen a remarkable 60,000 hits since January 29th, 2011.

To celebrate the release of the album, NOT TONIGHT JOSEPHINE is scheduled to head out on a tour of the Eastern U.S. in late spring. The ‘All on the Horizon Tour’ will begin in late April and will travel the states through the end of May. The band is also planning on making appearances at the St. Patrick’s Day Block Party at Durty Nelly’s in St. Petersburg, FL on March 17th, and at University of South Florida’s Student Union for their tour kickoff on April 24th.

Since the release of their debut, This Orphan Heart EP and being named “Tampa, FL’s Most Buzz-worthy Rock Band” by Creative Loafing in Fall 2009, NOT TONIGHT JOSEPHINE have quickly been raising their status in rock’s up-and-coming scene. 2010 saw the band selected for a main stage performance at the Florida Music Festival in April, shooting a series of webisodes for Busch Gardens’ Howl-O-Scream festival in September, and nailing down a much-coveted slot on WSUN 97X’s annual Next Big Thing concert in Tampa, FL in December. The band has also performed at the November 2009 Ford 300 NASCAR Championship Race, the Miami Music Festival, the Driven Music Conference, XFC 9, MudFest, WSUN 97x’s BackYard BBQ, and WJRR Native Noise at House of Blues Orlando, FL. NOT TONIGHT JOSEPHINE has performed with acts such as Anberlin, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Sick Puppies, Drowning Pool and more. With their new single ‘Carousel’ and its video now leaving fans bloodthirsty for more music, NOT TONIGHT JOSEPHINE will certainly be climbing the ladder ever higher in 2011.
