This Thursday poses far too many options when it comes to music. In St. Pete, you've got the NOLA-bred eclectic rock brew of The Revivalists at Local 662, or the holiday-themed Cloak + Dagger show at The Bends, with special guest spinner Jesse Scotto.
The December edition of Rock the Park is headed up by Easter Island, an Athens/Atlanta five-piece that has, over the past few years, been drawing a healthy buzz for producing a mix of dreamy atmospheric pop and darker-tinged shoe-gazy rock as mysterious and majestic as their moniker suggests, and driven by the songwriting of co-leaders/brothers Eathan and Asher Paynewhich. Space-funk disco-slinging Displace and all-genre-fusing sextet Dropin Pickup add their own respective sounds to the bill. Rock the Park is held from 6 to 9:30 p.m., for free, at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in downtown Tampa.
And as mentioned earlier, both of these shows are free. Check out a few tracks by Easter Island and Pompeya after the jump...
