The live music scene around the Tampa area is full of choices for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Check out a few of my suggestions below:

ThursdaySeven Mary Three at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino, Tampa – I’ll be on-hand to cover this show, so check back for pics on Friday.

Friday :

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Jannus Live, St. Petersburg – Old-school hip-hop in downtown St. Pete.

Blast Friday: Atlanta Rhythm Section, Cleveland Street in front of the Capitol Theatre, Clearwater – Free concert from a great band. What more could you ask for?

Saturday:

Avril Lavigne, Tropicana Field (after the Tampa Bay Rays game), St. Pete – Yeah, the field will be full of screaming teen fans, but it should still be a good show.I plan on wading into the mayhem for a few good pics, so be sure to check back for updates on Sunday.

97X Backyard BBQ w/Sick Puppies, Panic! At The Disco, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, AWOLNATION, The Airborne Toxic Event, Hugo, Marksmen, Vinoy Park, St. Petersburg. – I’m going to miss this event because, well, I’ll just say it……. I’m getting old. Getting into and out of events at Vinoy Park is a pain in the butt and I’d rather not put myself through the hassle unless it’s a really big show that I can’t avoid.

Taproot w/Seven Years Past, Devil Made Microphones, We’re All Virus, Soulidium, The State Theatre, St. Petersburg

Sunday:  Face to Face w/Blitzkid, Strung Out, The State Theatre, St. Petersburg

Monday:  Foxy Shazam w/Peter Pepper, The Orpheum, Ybor City (Tampa)
