The official kick-off to the biggest rock/culture event of the summer — Christopher Long was there.
With You Tonight (DTF/Membran). Review by Jen Cray.
White Reaper Does It Again (Polyvinyl). Review by Jen Cray.
Tampa’s Big Guava Festival puts itself on the sun & sounds map, and wins the heart of Jen Cray.
Made Violent (Startime International/Columbia). Review by Jen Cray.
Central Florida has got itself a proper music festival in the way of the BIG GUAVA. Save your gas money, cause with a lineup this good there’s no reason to drive 500 miles north to get your festival fix.
Planta (SQE Music). Review by Jen Cray.
The Hunting Room (Manufacture). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Comedown Machine (RCA). Review by Jen Cray.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers sell out Orlando’s Amway Arena with the grace and ease of a well-seasoned band with nothing to prove. Jen Cray joins in with the masses on some memorable sing-alongs.
Welcome New Machine (Dirtnap). Review by Jen Cray.
Angles (RCA/Rough Trade). Review by Jen Cray.
Amoral (Friendly Fire/ Static Recital). Review by Jen Cray.
If Phoenix’s debut Orlando performance is any indication of its future, the little French band is finally beginning to see the fruits of its decade-long labor. An enthusiastic sold-out crowd that included Jen Cray greeted the band with open arms.
In The Dark (ATO). Review by Joe Frietze.
Jet‘s inspired blending of garage and classic rock shouldn’t work, but it does, even six years after plowing into America’s consciousness.
Kings of Leon are well on their way to dominating the rock world here in their own country. Jen Cray caught their subtle, but satisfying, show in Orlando recently.
