Tampa may now be known as the site of Clint Eastwood’s bizarre “Empty Obama Chair” speech, but in the late ’60s, it was the fertile breeding ground for a different kind of conservatism—namely, the Outlaws. Getting signed to a recording deal after opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Southern rock band went on to a string of successes in the 1970s, most notably the song “Green Grass and High Tides,” which in a live setting stretched from a 10-minute album track to a 20- or 30-minute guitar-heavy wankfest. With original members Henry Paul and Monte Yoho, wish for “There Goes Another Love Song” when the Outlaws play Monday, Oct. 1, at the Sweetwater Music Hall (19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley; 8pm; $42; 415.388.3850) and Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Uptown Theatre (1350 Third St., Napa; 8pm; $35; 707.259.0123).
