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 CL's 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.
The series kicked off last week with Jensen Serf Co.. The next band to get the CL Antiwarpt Must-See Video Spotlight is Permanent Makeup, their sound a churning a mix of dark-tinged late'70s/early '80s-styled post-punk and churning, dissonant avant rock. For their Ryan Zarra-produced Antiwarpt video spotlight, Julie G. interviewed the band right here in the CL Space [still above], where they also performed a few tracks.
