Augusts Florida? Yeah! will feature singer-songwriter Alex Nelson and Gallos band Dooms de Pop. Nelson crafts lo-fi acoustic numbers infused with keyboards and topped with emotional and sincere lyricism. Dooms de Pop is the opposite. Noisy but not sloppy, Dooms de Pop mixes heavy, crunchy guitar-playing with aggressive drumming for a prog-rock delivery that has an added shot of punk adrenaline.
Florida? Yeah!, held the last Saturday of every month, kicks off at 11 p.m. at Fort Lauderdales favorite dive bar, The Poor House (110 SW 3 Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Tongues of the Heartworm will also perform. Admission is free. Call 954-522-5145.
