Jannus Live was the place to be in St. Petersburg, Florida as the local band, The Hip Abduction closed out 2019 and welcomed in the New Year. They were supported by Delray Beach’s own, Artikal Sound System!
This was a New Year celebration with the works, including champagne bottles.
The Hip Abduction’s unique combination of African beats and reggae dub along with Artikal Sound System’s reggae style made for the perfect all-local lineup.
The greatest highlight of all was the family of fans that came together not only to support the state’s great music scene but the sense of community.
This is my second year in a row celebrating it in St. Pete and it never disappoints!
