Recording artists don’t have anything against Tampa. There’s a logical reason why some tours miss the area and, well, all of the Sunshine State. Routing sometimes prevents performers from hitting Florida.
“There are times we make that right turn at Atlanta and go toward New Orleans,” Everclear’s Art Alexakis explained. “I love Florida, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes.”
This week a plethora of sonic heavyweights and contenders will not be taking that right turn. From pop to hip-hop to blues to bluegrass to “West End Girls” to a “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” there is something for everyone in Bay area venues. It’s just a matter of choosing the show or shows you would like to catch.
