The Kills Play Ybor City

The recent show at the Ritz, by The Kills, will probably be considered one of the best shows in Tampa for 2012. Allison Mosshart is one of the best singers and front women in rock. Jamie Hince is a highly underrated guitarist.

Many Tampa bands could learn how to play to a crowd by watching this show. I have seen many local Tampa bands have boring onstage conversations with their friends in the audience. Mosshart gave the audience the middle finger during Fuck the People. The audience gave her the one finger salute right back. What the audience appreciated was the ballsy attitude. Mosshart was playing her herself and Hince. Whether the audience was into the show or not was secondary.
