813area Labor Day Luau w/Temp/Infinite Skillz/Jinx/Acoupstix/Heights NS If you’re wondering just how to spend your Labor Day Sunday, local events site 813area.com stages a free rooftop Luau Party at Prana that touches on some first-class locally brewed underground hip-hop talent, including three artists featured in this summer’s CL Music Issue: scene champion Infinite Skillz, who has a playfully animated flow and a style informed by classic hip-hop and soul; another scene vet, Jinx, who’s been known to draw from obscure sources; and fresh spitting up-and-comer, Temp. Get a drink on the house for RSVP’ing in advance at 813area.com/guestlist. (Prana, Ybor City)
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 04
Return of Da Cypher Hansel “Aych” Wilson brings his open mic and showcase of local hip-hop flavor back to the Crowbar stage with some slight alterations. Aych continues as Da Cypher’s spearheading founder, but he has some help from sidekicks/co-hosts Ms. Rich and J. Roc Jones. Eight acts will be chosen to perform, and one TBA artist headlines, with the usual room left for freestylin’ and between-set jams. (Crowbar, Ybor City)
Wintersun w/Fleshgod Apocalypse/Arsis/Starkill The name calls to mind stark light, fickle warmth, austere snow-crusted cityscapes of an indeterminate era … or maybe I see these visuals because I know that Wintersun hails from Finland and their shred-infested metal evokes the epic, heavily orchestrated atmosphere envisioned by vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Jari Mäenpää. Last year saw the release of sophomore full-length, Time 12. (Orpheum, Ybor City)CLICK HERE to see a complete rundown of shows taking place this week and in the coming weeks
Excellent review, sorry I missed the concert.
I was fortunate to see Bonnie Raitt. Her stage presence was heart warming and her…
loved it! Well worth the $$.
