In a social media age of constant multi-platform transparency, mystique becomes an ever more rare and valuable commodity in arts and music. A notable exception to this saturation (in our own extended backyard, no less) is enigmatic Florida performing entity Haves&Thirds. The solo vehicle for Tampa-and-proud-of-it resident Todd Lynne, Haves&Thirds has served as a fulcrum for a thriving DIY community that has fostered musicians as diverse as Merchandise, Russian Tsarlag, Naga and i_like_dog_face. And Lynne keeps the DIY torch burning brightly in distinctly analog forms – running the Cephia’s Treat label, recording bands in his house and screenprinting show posters. Often overlooked in this beehive of activity, however, is the sheer crystalline gorgeousness of Haves&Thirds’ music. Imagine an endless loop of all your favorite instrumental hooks from Cure songs, or Stone Roses’ rehearsal outtakes where Ian Brown didn’t bother to show up, or even 4AD-style postpunk reimagined in the swampy haze of a Florida summer. Live, Lynne keeps it cryptic, playing simultaneous synth and guitar all masked and anonymous. Haves&Thirds are joined on Saturday by a who’s-who of outsider creativity, including Tallahassee’s blacksunblackmoon, filmmaker Kate Shults, local dronescaper Temperament (playing hooky from his various metal projects) and the inimitable insult comedian T Func.
