Skip the Warped Tour, hit St. Petersburg's Anti-Warpt Fest instead
We confess, we're not totally feeling this year's Warped Tour, which hits St. Petersburg July 23. Andrew W.K.? Never Shout Never? Tampa's own Automatic Loveletter? All good, but we're still feeling a little ambivalent toward Warped 2010.
Apparently we're not the only ones. Those creative cats on the 600 block of Central Avenue in St. Petersburg are putting together their own local festival that night, and they're calling it the Anti-Warpt Fest.
Four venues -- The Local 662, The Emerald, Fubar and Star Booty -- are putting together a massive local show on July 23 with concerts by more than 20 really solid bands, as well as a PBR art show and sidewalk sale. Tickets are $7 advance, $10 day of show. Click here for details.
The lineup, by venue:
The Local 662: Have Gun Will Travel, the Semis, The Still Voice (above), Alias Punch, Florida Night Heat, Brent Rademaker
Star Booty: Boys Are Scary, Only Monsters, Travis Brown, Living Arches
The Emerald: Bombshell Lust, Signals from Satellites, Living Arches, Dead Cat Lounge, The Whales
Fubar: Lights Out!, Red Letter Day, Criminal Culture, Weapons of Ass Destruction
