Eboni Jones, Ticketfly Marketing Intern
Ticketfly is excited to be partnering up with another venue in sunny Florida. Located in Ybor City known as Tampa’s Latin Quarters, The Orpheum has been around for over 10 years. The venue has brought in a slew of national acts while remaining steady supporters of local bands and can boast over 1,000 shows. Now in their new, bigger digs at 1915 East 7th Avenue, the capacity is approximately 700.
This underground, indie club is sometimes deemed the ‘hipster bar.’ Maybe because the cool kids come to see bands play, dance all night and drink a few cocktails, which according to the Ticketfly rule book is not so bad. The Orpheum is known for its sound system and overall vibes. In addition to concerts, the club hosts indie and soul dance nights which is a welcomed deviation from your typical Top 40 music. The last Monday of every month, you can dance to all the old hits at Soul! where the drinks are always 2 for 1. Otis and Sam would approve.
A new venue, a new partnership, it’s like a new relationship – And we’re glad to be in it!
