The Temper Trap coming to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg




You may not know the name The Temper Trap, but you've probably heard their single Sweet Disposition. It was a hit around the world before it popped up in every single movie, TV show and commercial released in the past two years, most notably (500) Days of Summer.

Sweet Disposition is a good introduction to the Temper Trap, as the group primarily traffics in fist-pumping, heart-on-your-sleeve alt-rock chest-beaters. They're a bit like an Australian Coldplay in that regard (in fact, they'll tour Australia and New Zealand with Coldplay later this year), and they've landed some appropriately huge gigs, including a main stage gig at Bonnaroo this summer.

Find out what all the fuss is about when the Temper Trap comes to the State Theatre in St. Petersburg on Oct. 23. According to their website, The Neighbourhood will open the show. Ticketmaster says tickets will cost $21 and go onsale Friday. Click here.

Now you've got three months to get Sweet Disposition out of your head again. Good luck.
