Jacksonville singer-songwriter Andy Zipf (pronounced "Ziff") is a gentle yet emotional force. Just check out the Paste premiere of his March 2020 single “There is No Virus on the Moon,” a beautiful diorama-filled video, made with the help of his son, which proves there is beauty in almost anything, even a worldwide pandemic.

Zipf’s new record How to Make a Paper Airplane drops any day now, but until then see the critically-acclaimed artist with his buddy and cohort Lauris Vidal for free in St. Petersburg.

This isn’t going to be just a “background music while you check out whatever new brews Green Bench has on tap,” kind of show—it’s a “you’re going to want to keep quiet during this patio show” kind of gig.
