Lumineers bring low-key charisma to play Tampa's Sun Dome

Denver folk rockers are riding the wave of their massive hit 'Ho Hey'

October 17, 2013 


They've only released one album, and they only have one song that's widely familiar, but the Lumineers have been selling every seat wherever they perform, so you might want to get your tickets soon if you want to see them Saturday when they play the Sun Dome.

It's the Tampa debut for the Denver-based folk-rock outfit, whose catchy, low-key single "Ho Hey" was one of the most pleasant and most surprising hits of 2013.

Their songs are simple and smart, and so far on the current tour audiences and critics seem to be loving the Lumineers.

Opening the shows are Dr. Dog, an acclaimed Pennsylvania indie-rock band that's been simmering just below the brim of stardom for a decade or so, and Nathaniel Rateliff, another respected folk rocker from Denver. Rateliff and the Lumineers make a natural concert fit, but Dr. Dog -- who has been compared to everyone from the Beach Boys to Pavement -- are from a different mold.

What all three acts have in common is infectious, unpretentious music that's pretty much impossible to dislike. Tickets are inexpensive, too, as low as $22.50.

Details: 7:15 p.m. Oct. 19, University of South Florida Sun Dome, 4202 E. Fowler Ave. Tickets: $22.50-$42.50. Information: 813-974-3002,
