John Mark McMillan @ Polk Theatre

LOOK: John Mark McMillan at Polk Theatre – 11.07.14

There’s usually a step up in quality whenever John Mark McMillan and his friends step on the stage, and that was certainly the case recently at his show in Lakeland at the Polk Theatre. An oddly oversized pit area between the band and the crowd did nothing to hurt the connection that was revived during […]

First Aid Kit @ The Ritz Ybor

LOOK: First Aid Kit at The Ritz Ybor – 11.05.14

Words by Stephanie Escalante. Photos by gtdmouse. First Aid Kit: They Have That Midas Touch Their clothes and setting mirrors their music: textured, layered.

LOOK: Samantha Crain at Ritz Ybor – 11.05.14

Words by Stephanie Escalante. Photos by gtdmouse. She Should Be On A Soundtrack: Samantha Crain The Okie is introspective and invites listeners to be, too. With just a few lyrics, audience members were transported to singer-songwriter Samantha Crain’s narratives of railroad tracks, the everydayness of coffee, wanderlust and sometimes feeling plain stuck. It was a […]

The Congress @ The Cuban Club

LOOK: The Congress at The Cuban Club – 11.01.14

Words by Stephanie Escalante. Photos by gtdmouse. November 1st, and Fall was in the air. It was a cold night by Floridian standards—probably somewhere in the mid-50s.

Benjamin Booker @ The Social

LOOK: Benjamin Booker at The Social – 10.29.14

We had the opportunity to see Benjaming Booker & Co. tear it up at The Social in Orlando this week. Pretty soon we won’t be able to see him in such a small venue anymore; he’s blowing up right now. And with good reason. Check out a few photos of him channeling his inner Jimi […]

We’re not sure there could have been a more fitting opener for Benjamin Booker last week at The Social last week than the Woolly Bushmen. They certainly did not dissapoint. Check out some photos below.

Lake Street Dive @ Austin City Limits Music Festival

WATCH: Lake Street Dive

Named after a section of dive bars in Minneapolis, MN, Lake Street Dive is dripping with vintage voice and a perfect balance of quirk, flirt and sass. The quartet met at the New England Conservatory of Music around 2004 and is now on a 31-city tour that finishes up in Australia and will be hitting […]

Capital Cities @ The Ritz Ybor

LOOK: Capital Cities at The Ritz Ybor – 10.23.14

Words by Stephanie Escalante. Photos by gtdmouse. After a short, humorous clip from front men Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, Capital Cities came out on stage to a comfortably packed Ritz. Sporting sunglasses, Merchant rocked a black leather jacket; Simonian’s keyboard was accented with a MacBook. Capital Cities was every bit offbeat in that trademark […]
