The Weepies make their way to Clearwater, FL for their debut at the all-new Murray Theatre! Singer-songwriters Deb Talan & Steve Tannen began writing together the night they met, and soon formed indie band The Weepies. On the strength of their simple yet insightful songwriting and distinctive harmonies, they quietly sold more than a million records, with over 17 million streams on Spotify, and 20 million views on YouTube.

At 16 songs and almost an hour long, their 2015 album, SIRENS shows a band at the height of its powers.
