How hot does it get here?

Six stages.

Thirty-two bands.

Hot weather, cold beer and loose women. (Or so they tell me.)

It's the music event of the year in Tampa Bay. Hot damn.

The 28th annual Tropical Heatwave in Ybor City will be rocking Saturday with an eclectic lineup that includes the Beauvilles, Chuck Prophet, Trombone Shorty, Blair Carman & the Bellvue Boys and two of my favorite female singers: Eilen Jewell and Sarah Borges.

That's Borges, left, rocking out with the Broken Singles. Their new release "The Stars are Out'' (Sugar Hill) is half originals and half covers, but it's definitely not half-ass. Especially divine is her spin on the Smokey Robinson classic "Being With You.''

She's my pick to click at the Wave. Now how easy was that?
