✔️  Permanent Makeup LP release w/Prison Warder/Vacancy/Chaff Permanent Makeup’s last LP (this year’s I Don’t Like You Either) only existed on the internet, so we’re glad that the band’s own label — No Clear Records — has teamed up with friends (DeadTank Records, IFB Records) to press 300 vinyl copies of the St. Pete punks’ latest — Scrape — on which bassist Christopher Nadeau, guitarist James Bess and drummer Susan Dickson-Nadeau careen their way through bouncy, angry tracks like album opener “Currency” and the demonically woozy crunch of “Desperate Adults.” Listen to more of the LP here.

No cover and no assholes either. (Green Bench Brewing Co., St. Petersburg) INFO

The Demi Nova Experience Part 2 [plus GMF TECO Streetcar performance] Gasparilla Music Festival alum Demi Nova (she performed with Jinx) gets a mulligan on an Irma-related show postponement. The rescheduling has created a unique opportunity, however, for the soul and R&B singer to join the Tampa emcee for a rolling performance aboard the TECO Streetcar, which departs from Ybor City's Centennial Park Station at 5 p.m. Afterwards, join Nova for an immersive experience built around her debit LP, The Infinite. Read more about the album here and get more information on the streetcar show on Facebook. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
