Are you curious what the genre Cold Wave sounds like? It's like a portal back to the late 1970s, with looped, detached vocals and early electronic beats—tangential to the likeness of post-punk and new wave.
But if you’re really curious, head to The Bends on Friday night to experience cold wave and dark wave with a modern twist by Tampa’s finest experimenters like, Ortrotasce, Fjshwjfe, Haves & Thirds and Naga.
Ortrotasce, Fjshwjfe, Haves & Thirds and Naga. Fri. Jan., 3. 10 p.m. Free. The Bends, 919 1st Ave N, St. Petersburg. More Info
