This weekend marks  the end of an era for both St. Petersburg’s Indie Bar and one of the city’s favorite psych-rock groups.

Liquid Pennies—headlining festivities on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Indie St. Pete, one of the bar's last concerts before closing—is looking at a potential tour in the somewhat near future, but Zoë Turtle has other plans that require her to stay local.

“This break from gigging is to get away from the late nights, and for Zoë to focus on working on her own solo material and teaching music. But she’ll continue to do appearances with us, just more sporadically,” frontman Chas Binns told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. Even now, Turtle only appears for a handful of songs before Liquid Pennies finishes a gig as a trio.

Nonetheless, Saturday night in St. Pete just got even more bittersweet.
