Pixies, Strokes headline Tampa's Big Guava festival

   The lineup for this year's Big Guava Music Festival was announced Friday, and it's a great one.
   The Strokes are the nominal headliners. They're great live, but the lineup also includes the Pixies, one of the most important bands of the past 30 years, and TV on the Radio, the phenomenal avant garde rock band.
   Other big names include the electronic indie band Passion Pit, indie darling Jenny Lewis, alt-country icon Ryan Adams, Irish singer-songwriter Hozier and British electronica artist James Blake.

   Other acts are likely to be announced later.
   The Big Guava Music Festival is slated for May 8 and 9 at the Florida State Fairgrounds and the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre. Besides the music, there's going to be craft beer and food trucks, and the fairgrounds' midway will be open.
   You can get two-day "early bird" passes for $89 right now, but there's a limited number available. At 10 a.m. Jan. 23 the price will go up to $115. You get access to all the stages and unlimited midway rides for that price. 
   You can also get premium tickets with a bunch of perks and extras for $325 today, and $350 starting Jan. 23.
