Tampa/St. Petersburg

Capital Cities

When: Tue., June 18
Price: Free with ticket

In catchy-fun synth rock single “Safe and Sound,” Capital Cities co-collaborators Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian deliver a warm triumphant refrain of love and support – “I can lift you up, I can show you what you want to see, and can take you where you want to be / You could be my luck, even if the sky is falling down I know that we’ll be safe and sound” – amid exultant trumpet and waves of bright synthesizer sonics, all of it carried on jaunty dance beats. The LA duo is joined by a full band on their current tour supporting first full-length In a Tidal Wave of Mystery. This is show is presented by 97X as part of the Bud Light Music First Concert Series, for free, but you need a ticket to get in. More info at
