Now, I know nobody would drive all the way to St. Pete to see the Warped Tour (especially considering that the fest is playing here the same week), but the second annual Antiwarpt Festival that’s been put together by the fine folks at Brokenmold Entertainment and Daddy Kool Records looks like a pretty good reason to spend the day (and night) in downtown St. Petersburg.
Bright Light Social Hour, Nervous Turkey, Auto!Automatic!, Have Gun Will Travel, and a slew of Orlando bands like the Pauses, Kaleigh Baker, the Broken Inn, Alias Punch and more. They’re even gonna do a pre-party up here at Will’s. Doesn’t look like ticket prices have been set, but the fest’s Facebook page says “$10-$30.”
