Though Labor Day takes precedence over May Day in the U.S., there are pockets of people who celebrate the holiday also known as International Workers’ Day (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) and International Workers of the World (IWW) have been a part of local marches in the past).

This year the only local event associated with the holiday is the May Day Meltdown at St. Pete recording studio Groovehaven, with five bands performing in the space’s “rock yard.” St. Pete’s Low Season headlines the show with really tight punk rock. Also performing is the power garage-pop foursome Pretty Voices (pictured), which has been playing garage-rock revival for fans of The Hives, complete with giggly Jello Biafra vocals, since 2009. The heaviest of the night comes from punk-band Human Error—I had to catch my breath after a listen. The Inhalers are the most straight up rock ‘n’ roll act on the bill, and rounding out the lineup is the proud-to-be-middle-aged Du Nuthings which plays mix of punk covers and originals. 

Masks are required. 

May Day Meltdown: Low Season w/Pretty Voices/The Inhalers/Human Error/Du Nuthings Saturday, May 1, 7 p.m. $5. Groovehaven Music, St. Petersburg. INFO
