We’ve hung out with so many bands at Lizzy McCormack’s, it’s surreal. From doing shots with Lucero, to drinking Irish Car Bombs with Minus The Bear, to running into Brian from The Front Bottoms, it’s always a comfortable, fun atmosphere. This is our escape, our home, our neighborhood pub in the middle of downtown.
If you’ve never had a pudding shot, please go try one. Also, Jameson is very nice. 😎
2pm—2am, every day.

The original Daddy Kool Records opened in Bradenton in 1985. It was an immediate hit with local musicians and fans, and the shop’s success only grew as it relocated to Sarasota a few years later, where it remained the heart of the area’s underground music scene for nearly 15 years.
In 1999, a second Daddy Kool opened in downtown St. Petersburg, just down the street from the city’s historic State Theatre — home to countless No Clubs concerts — and immediately became a preferred destination for fans, musicians, and artists alike.
Now, Daddy Kool’s flagship store is in a larger space across the street from its original St. Pete location (666 Central Ave). With an even larger inventory and knowledgeable staff, it remains one of Florida’s most popular independent music shops. Daddy Kool enthusiastically supports its fellow local businesses, and takes part in events large and small, from homegrown music festivals and in-store appearances to annual Record Store Day shenanigans.

Shows I Go To relies on working machines. We need fast processing, working screens, and a lot of storage space. Tim is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to computer hardware. He can dissect a machine, replace a screen, upgrade the RAM, and BAM you’re computer is somehow better than it was when you bought it new!
He helps us purchase new computers for our team and makes sure our babies are up to date and running healthy. If you’re in the market for a new machine, looking to upgrade the guts of your current device, or if it’s just running slow and needs a good scrub, Tim is your guy. (Serious love this dude!)
When our Windows PCs or Macbooks catch some nasty virus, we know TAKE IT TO TIM! If you don’t, you’ll be saying …
SHOULD HAVE TAKEN IT TO TIM!

When it’s time to travel out of town for a show, we always reach out to someone we truly trust — Dorsa’s Orlando Pet Care Services. Our five year old Boxer, Ali Muhammad, is a core part of the Shows I Go To Family and Chief Moral Booster.
When you love a pet and try to understand their needs, a bond is created which cannot be fully explained. It’s a form true love. We believe Dorsa respects and perpetuates this kindness and compassion in her Orlando Pet Services. We honestly wouldn’t trust Ali with anyone else the way we trust Dorsa.
I wanted to create a personalized service where you’re encouraged to communicate and be involved in the growing pet community here in Florida.
