Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes' Jade Castrinos talks about returning to her hometown of St. Petersburg




Jade Castrinos was born in St. Petersburg, and lived in Treasure Island until she was three. She still remembers her favorite locales, too: Treasure Island, of course, and the beach, as well as an area by her grandmother's house that children called the "secret garden." Her family then moved to California, where she would eventually meet Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros frontman Alex Ebert.

Now Castrinos will have a homecoming of sorts when her band comes to Jannus Live with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on Monday. Tickets are $25; click here.

Castrino said the history of the Zeros has been one of gradual evolution, leading up to their St. Pete show.

"Sort of one by one, the band came together in perfect order and time," she said. "And we're on our way to Florida, little by little."
