The California-based outfit currently rule MTV and modern rock radio, but unlike much of the garbage that litters the... Read More

LIVE REVIEW: Sleigh Bells, Liturgy, Diplo at The Ritz Ybor 02.04.12

We had no idea that it was SPIN magazine preventing us from shooting the Sleigh Bells appearance at The Ritz Ybor a few weeks ago, and while we wish we would’ve had a chance to present photos that rivaled these, SubAp! still sent a writer to cover the goings on.  So, in a very narrative style, we present Zac Tomlinson’s take on the show, sans real photos.

DO IT TODAY: Jack’s Mannequin, Guster, Augustana at The Ritz Ybor

Photo via EarthWordsAudio.com The Ritz – 1503 E. 7th Ave. (Ybor City) – $31-$34 – 6:30 p.m. – All Ages Say what you want.  Something Corporate’s first two albums were the shit.  “Hurricane,” “If You C Jordan,” and “Punk Rock Princess” all have a permanent spot in my brain, and while the band’s output hasn’t been all that hot since I stopped wearing Hollister jeans, I still want to make it out to The Ritz Ybor where SoCo... Read More
