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?


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)


Every December, country star Charlie Daniels puts together the Charlie Daniels Celebrity Golf and Concert event to benefit one of his favorite charities, The Angelus. Held in Tampa, Florida, the event features a celebrity golf tournament, star-studded awards ceremony, silent auction and day-long country concert.

As in past years, most of the 2010 events will be hosted by the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, with the concert slated to take place at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre.

Some of the country music stars scheduled to take part in this event include:
