    The Big Orlando gave Central Florida fans a music festival in jacket weather. Weezer and Fall Out Boy headlined, but there were a dozen other bands to keep Jen Cray happy all the live long day.

  • Alkaline Trio

    Alkaline Trio

    Alkaline Trio can make a collar bone sexy, can make a tattoo needle feel like a numbing tickle, and can make Jen Cray sit through an emo band just to see them play, yet again.

  • State Champs

    State Champs

    Overslept (Pure Noise). Review by Jen Cray.

  • New Found Glory

    New Found Glory

    Pop Punk’s Not Dead on New Found Glory’s fall tour, but that doesn’t mean that Jen Cray is as blindly accepting of the modern day take on the genre as some.

  • Buckcherry

    Buckcherry

    One thousand lucky Orlando fans experienced a virtual 3-D all-star rock and roll event sponsored by Jägermeister! Chris Long could’ve used a little more rock and a little less talk.

  • The Get Up Kids

    The Get Up Kids

    The Get Up Kids have, thankfully, outgrown the pop punk emo bands that copped their style 10 years ago, as a recent Orlando date proved to virgin listener Jen Cray.

  • Meat Loaf

    Meat Loaf

    For those in need of a concert that’s a little more theatrical than most, there’s Meat Loaf, served up with a side of Pearl. Jen Cray caught the Orlando date of the legendary rocker’s Hang Cool Teddy Bear Tour.

    Chartbuster Fall Out Boy returned to the Central Florida concert stage to wow a teenaged Orlando audience with their special brand of punky/pop. Christopher Long wasn’t so impressed.

  • Warped Tour 2008

    Hits (Drive-Thru/MCA). Review by Andrew Ellis.

  • The AP Tour

    The AP Tour

    Alternative Press Magazine’s third annual tour sold out its Orlando date as All Time Low, The Rocket Summer, and a trio of other Teen Beat worthy bands made the girls and boys in the audience swoon. Jen Cray stood back and watched it all unfold.

  • The Dollyrots

    The Dollyrots and Suffrajett conquer a small crowd in Orlando, Jen Cray included.

  • Foo Fighters

    Foo Fighters

    Pete Murray of LO-PRO

    Fresh off an acoustic tour supporting Aaron Lewis of Staind, Pete Murray sheds light on the shadowy world of the music industry, why Lo-Pro was suddenly and unexpectedly dropped from 413 Records (Geffen), and the group’s plans for the future without a record label.

  • Fall Out Boy

    Fall Out Boy

    Chicago quartet, Fall Out Boy, brought their Young Wild Things Tour to Philadelphia, but Brittany Sturges found it rather tame.

  • I Am the Avalanche

    I Am the Avalanche

    I Am the Avalanche brought a slew of mediocrity on tour with them to Orlando. Jen Cray was there to witness the disaster.
