Zigtebra’s feel-good Chicago-born indie-pop comes to The Bends in St. Petersburg

Reality Asylum and King Complex open the no-cover show.


It’s hard not to love Zigtebra, and it’ll be impossible to not have a good time when the Chicago indie-pop duo drops into the close confines of The Bends, where dreamy, reverb-heavy texture from the band’s 2017 one-song-a-month project can meet the high-energy live set that Emily Rose and Joe Zeph have been bravely bringing to every corner of the country for what feels like two years straight. Reality Asylum’s '80s-inspired industrial-dance party opens the show after King Complex lulls early comers into a trance with its highly visual take on bluesy, electro-influenced indie-rock.

Zigtebra w/Reality Asylum/King Complex. Fri. Aug. 24, 10 p.m. No cover. The Bends, 919 First Ave. N., St. Petersburg. facebook.com/thebendsbar.
