Emo flame-keepers American Football have announced a small handful of Florida shows set for this summer and Orlando is (finally) one of those stops! Even more excitingly, support will come from tuneful locals You Blew It! who are returning from hiatus to play with American Football for these three shows.

American Football themselves reunited after a lengthy silence in 2016 with their first new album in nearly two decades and a steady string of live dates and promises of more new material.

American Football plays the Beacham with You Blew It! on Thursday, Aug. 9, at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $25.
