What we're about

Oi oi oi! This group is for anyone in the Tampa-St.Pete-Clearwater-etc. area that loves pop punk, punk, ska, and similar genres.

All artists, from garage bands to national touring acts are equally appreciated here. Usually we meet up inside the venue and chat until the show starts.

While I typically try and organize events around local shows, if there's interest I might also organize general meet and greets (since it can difficult to get to know someone during a show) and maybe even 'book club' style events (pop punk pizza party, anyone?) where we can wax poetic about a particular artist or album.

If you know of an upcoming show that's not on the group calendar, shoot me a message and I will create a meetup around it!

Looking forward to seeing you at a show!

Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Retirement Party, The Obsessives @ Crowbar in Ybor

Solid lineup at Crowbar in Ybor city of some up and coming pop punk bands that skew more emo and mod (think Citizen, Have Mercy, Tiger's Jaw). Since it's a Monday and people probably won't want to hang out after the show, we can meet for a drink nearby (TBD) beforehand and then go in together. Crowbar's site says doors at 7PM and the show at 8PM, but the promoter site says 6PM and 7PM. Will find out more details when the date is closer. Tickets are ~$18 online after service charges. You may be able to get them cheaper at Crowbar.
