"Since Red Bull’s celebration of human-powered flight is sure to leave you far too inebriated to drive anywhere, the fine folks at Cigar City Brewing have teamed up with the Tampa Bay History Center to throw one hell of a post-Flugtag celebration at the waterfront museum located adjacent to the St. Pete Times Forum.
Ybor City’s favorite sons (and the official band of getting drunk) – The Beauvilles – return to the Bay Area after an east coast tour to bring their highly intoxicating take on dingy, dirty, rock & roll-kissed blues to the celebration. Songs like “Snow,” “Lips,” and “Bougainvillea,” from 2009’s Whispering Sin, and are fresh as they were two years ago, but expect frontman Shawn Kyle & co. to tease new songs from an upcoming LP.
Having formed in 1999, Rocksteady@8 is made up of veritable elder statesmen in the scene. That fact, however, only proves the old adage that says things get better with time. Jason Nwabacharocha is a captivating, constantly smiling, frontman, and his charm floats effortlessly on top of Bryan Zink’s guitar, and soothing horns via Kenny Pullin, Victoria King, and Jeremy Powell. It’s a blend of reggae, soul, and ska that is truly intoxicating.
Tim Hutchson, on the other hand, plays a style acoustic-rock completely juxtaposed to The Beauvilles and posses a song catalog that is full of cleanly-picked, soft-strummed acoustic guitar laments, and while songs like “You & Me” and “Michigan” will please the laid back, flip-flop crowd, “The Rain” – which was written in Tampa – is a hardnosed rocker marked by an pounding bass line and wah-wah-ed guitar licks."
