Singer-songwriter David Dondero headlines Summer Jam 8 in Ybor City, Tampa

Indie singer-songwriter David Dondero has been putting on killer shows at New World Brewery in Ybor City for years.

It's a cozy venue with an outstanding beer selection that the Austin, Tex., resident knows well. So is the entertainment district in which New World is located.

On Dondero's superb, surreal Florida travelogue "South of the South," off his highly recommended 2005 album of the same name, Dondero jumps on his pogo stick "all the way to Ybor City."

In fact, he dedicates an entire verse to the Tampa neighborhood turned party zone.

Dondero headlines Saturday, with support from Bradenton-connected jam band The Applebutter Express (of recent Bonnaroo fame), the New World portion of Summer Jam 8. The multi-act event also takes place simultaneously at nearby Crowbar.

Details: 5 p.m. Sept. 1, 1313 East 8th Ave., Tampa-Ybor City. Tickets: $13 (advance)., $16 (door). Information: 813-248-4969 or newworldbrewery.net.
