The 1975 plays St. Peterburg's State Theatre

The 1975
   "Esquire" called the 1975 one of the 15 bands to watch in 2013. Listen to the band's new EP, "IV," and its relentlessly catchy first US single, "Sex," and you're likely to agree.
   The quartet from Manchester, England will be at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg Wednesday, June 12. They're opening for the Neighbourhood, a solid but much more conventional-sounding pop band that you may know from its song "Sweater Weather."
   The 1975 has great hooks and (at least on their EPs) a phenomenal drum sound. Matthew Healy's passionate vocals elevate the music from power pop into something that feels more substantial. Lots of people on both sides of the Atlantic think this band is going to be huge.
   The State Theatre is at 662 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 day of show. Doors open at 7 p.m. 727-895-3945 or
