Jessi Layne has been in town visiting and we've decided on a visit to Ybor City tonight. You'll never hear us complain about the night scene here in Bradenton, but occasionally you've got to step up to the plate for something on a grander scale than karaoke at In-Cahoots. (But we do give props to the warbling host, who did an amazing Jim Morrison last night.)
A visit to the old Cuban neighborhood in Tampa allows an opportunity to catch up on what's REALLY happening on the music scene. Oops: A look at the online listings suggests it's going to be a heavy rapper night. Pitbull is the headliner at Ritz Ybor, and Big Cheese is holding court at the Big Skye with Buffie the Body, Kit Muzik and Jim Jones.
Jim Jones? How you gonna rap with a handle like dat?
Obviously I'm not prepared for this. Maybe Jess will show me the ropes...
