Concert of the Day: Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
Imagine a visual-focused musical based on the music of White Zombie, and you'll have a good idea of what seeing Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is like.
An avant-garde metal band with a twisted edge, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum puts on a visual spectacular consisting of puppet shows and makeshift homemade instruments. While the music is aurally sound and delightfully gritty, expect a huge emphasis on art and performance. So don't go expecting to headbang and mosh the whole night (you could, but you'd just miss out on some cool dark theatrics).
The show starts at 7 p.m. at the State Theater, 687 Central Ave., St. Pete, with Primitive Astronauts opening. Tickets are $15.
