In the weeks leading up to Antiwarpt III, Creative Loafing has teamed up with fest organizers and St. Pete Beat to produce a series of videos spotlighting our favorite must-see acts playing the third edition of the downtown St. Petersburg alternative-to-Warped Tour-festival. This year's edition brings more than 99 indie performers to town, with a strong focus on super high-quality local and regional talent.

Ray Roa interviewed the first band to get the CL Antiwarpt Must-See Video Spotlight: St. Pete-based Jensen Serf Company [video still above right], an echoey retro-surf garage trio in the vein of Surfer Blood, but with a more raucous lo-fi sound. Formerly known as Michael Christmas (which was never supposed to be a permanent name anyway), Jensen issued a five-song split cassette with Saylor in March via up-and-coming Nashville-based imprint Sturdy Girls (listen here), and has been earning a hard buzz ever since. Check out the Ryan Zarra-produced Antiwarpt video after the jump.
