While you can't take a "personal" day to recuperate from that MDW hangover, there is one thing that should brighten your morning: it's a short work week!
To help make the next few days go by as smoothly as the summer breeze, New Times is hooking you up with live shows from some pretty talented artists. So pour yourself a cup of coffee, put some clothes on (or don't), and check out this week's five best music events.
Florida Georgia Line's Anything Goes Tour.
"Hanging 'round, singing out everything on the radio," "shooting bullets at the moon," and "slingin'' up the mud, cuttin' through the countryside." That's how Florida Georgia Line rolls. Sure, it may seem pretty intense for some South Floridians, but what else would you expect from Billboard's Top Country artists of the year?
With Thomas Rhett and Frankie Ballard. Thursday, May 28, 7:30 p.m. Coral Sky Amphitheatre, Coral Sky Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; cruzanamphitheatre.net. Tickets cost $25 to $59.75 plus fees via livenation.com.
It's always the "Right Time" to party for a cause. That's why the Tremends and Grey 8's are bringing indie rock and "psychedelic/garage/blues" to Stache in support of the party palace's #beCAUSE Thursday. This week's bash will benefit the Billfish Foundation, which "works worldwide to advance the conservation of billfish and associated species to improve the health of oceans and economies."
With the Grey 8's and Mr. Jolt. As part of #beCAUSE Thursday with the Billfish Foundation. Presented by Gummdrops and Gosling's Rum. Thursday, May 28, 8 p.m. Stache 1920's Drinking Den, 109 SW 2nd Ave., Fort Lauderdale; stacheftl.com. $10 suggested cover.
When it comes to Americana rock, no local band is more Florida that Mylo Ranger. From "Delray Beach to the shores of Pensacola to forgotten spots in between," the "Southern-fried, funk-infused, nostalgic breed of rock 'n' roll" takes pride in the Sunshine State. So much so that the title track off the band's sophomore album, The Sawgrass Shivers, retells lead singer Myles Patrick's memory of an Everglades fire.
Presented by Flaunt Thursdays. Thursday, May 28, 11 p.m. Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 561-832-9999; respectablestreet.com. Admission is free.
