TBT: La Roux moves show to The RITZ Ybor


La Roux concert moved from Czar to the Ritz Ybor

We saw this happen with another hot young electronic pop act, when Owl City moved from the State Theatre to The RITZ Ybor in February. And that show still sold out.

So maybe it's a sign of this show's impending popularity that it's been moved to The RITZ as well.

The too-cool-for-Tampa La Roux concert scheduled for Aug. 3 at Czar has been moved to The RITZ Ybor. That's a sizeable bump in capacity, so we're getting the sense demand for this show has been, and will continue to be, strong.

On the one hand, it's kind of a shame Ybor's most hipster-heavy dance club won't get to host this show, as it would be a great fit for the Pulp the Party crowd, and we were looking forward to a night where all the patrons were wearing chunky white sunglasses inside a dark nightclub. On the other, The RITZ Ybor is a boffo venue, so it's still gonna be a fun show.

Tickets are still $16-$18.
