February 2011 :: Event Reviews
Flogging Molly's 7th annual Green 17 Tour brings to Orlando the added bonus of opening act Moneybrother. Jen Cray can't decide which band she enjoyed more.
Free Energy make their Central Florida debut in front of more than just the bartenders, and Jen Cray thanks her lucky stars that she decided to brave the 60 degree wintry blasts to catch the show.
A contemporary, multi-band juggernaut headlined by modern rock poster boys, Hinder, recently besieged Orlando, Florida. Despite a torrential downpour, approximately 1,500 enthusiactic fans, our own Christopher Long included, experienced one of the first big shows of the new year.
Sweden's Little Dragon played at the Electric Pickle for their first visit to Miami, and in spite of bad sound and a ton of cops, they were able to put on a great show with opener Billygoat for a very appreciative crowd. Eric Donath was there to happily soak it all in before a quick, law enforcement-induced exit.
Four, count 'em, FOUR great bands rock Orlando and nearly pogo us to death. Reel Big Fish and The Aquabats topped the lively bill that left Carl F Gauze dazed and dizzy.
Indie rock's boyfriend/girlfriend pair Nathan Williams and Bethany Cosentino of Wavves and Best Coast teamed up for a short co-headlining tour that stopped in Tallahassee, Florida. Jessica Whittington whittled her way into the sold-out show and liked about half of what she saw... but which half?
