Gainesville's dreadlocked singer-songwriter Chris McCarty, a local fave who hits the Skipperdome every eight weeks or so, brings his soulful acoustic groove-pop back to town, this time performing at Push Ultra Lounge for a "Ralley Florida" concert. The charitable event is held to raise awareness and funds for the statewide, grassroots "Share a Little Sunshine Tampa Bay (SALS)" viral marketing campaign to infuse much-needed revenue into Floridas economy.
If you're interested in doing your part, visit the SALS website (at VisitFlorida.com). Once there, upload some sort of video about Florida's greatness, then send it out to encourage friends, family and loved ones to vacation here. Every person who sends or receives an invite will be registered to win one of 12 Florida getaways. As an added bonus, every person who sends an invitation and brings the printed online confirmation to the concert gets in for free. The show takes place Friday, July 24, at 9 p.m.; regular admission is $5 at the door.
