Ace's Live regularly hosts the best in local and national roots acts with special love shown for blues artists. On Thursday, though, the Bradenton live music bar will change things up with Jacksonville rockers Fit For Rivals, which is fronted by feisty vocalist Renee Phoenix. Backed by Thomas Amason (guitar), Eli Clark (bass) and Dorman Pantfoeder (drums), she leads the four-piece through high-energy, punk-informed rock numbers with shades of screamo and electronica.
A young act with a promising future, the band's music videos for “Damage” and “Crash” have nearly 18 million views combined on YouTube. Fit for Rivals has toured with the likes of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hoobastank and Candlebox.
