Event Reviews

Badly Drawn Boy

Despite the charming accent, Brittany Sturges wasn't won over by Badly Drawn Boy'sperformance.

Billy Joel

It matters not that Billy Joel released his first album in 1971, when the Piano Man tours, he sells venues out. Jen Cray was among the 16,000 inside Orlando's Amway Arena who spent an evening with the Pop legend.

Deerhoof

It's taken Deerhoof thirteen years to grab widespread attention, but now that the media is paying attention the fans have followed. Jen Cray was one among many who crammed into The Social in Orlando, FL, to see what all the fuss is about.

Dr. Dog

The last we saw Dr. Dog, they were opening for The Raconteurs. Jen Cray couldn't resist seeing how their inspired 30-minute set translated to a full set on a stage of their own.

Dragonforce

As the Killswitch Engage/Dragonforce tour sped into Orlando for a sold-out night of metal mayhem, Jen Cray geared up for a night of epic headbangin'.

Moros Eros

Moros Eros are the most exciting band to call Victory Records home in years. Baffled as to why they were billed opening for an electro/emo artist, Jen Cray showed up at their Orlando show to congratulate them on their greatness.

Slayer

Slayer and Unearth bring the heaviness back to thrash and remind Orlando that metal is meant to be dangerous. Jen Cray was in the middle of it all.

Sleeping at Last

Chris Catania was just one member of a Chicago crowd awed into silence by the beautiful songs of Sleeping at Last and the Smoking Popes' Josh Caterer.

Sparklehorse

Chris Catania saw Sparklehorse transcend nasty weather and nastier flu to deliver a transcendent set of American Gothic. What's your excuse?

Summerbirds In The Cellar

The four perfectionists who run the Summerbirds In The Cellar machine consistently put on the best show of any Central Florida band I've seen. Billed behind them on a late night gig at Orlando's BackBooth was Attached Hands, For Ex Lovers Only, Derek Lyn Plastic. Staying until the very late, late end was Jen Cray.
