Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

Event Reviews

WMMO 98.9, Orlando’s soft rock radio station, puts on free concerts a few times a year as a “thanks for listening” for its listeners. To close out 2007, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts took over the grassy knoll in front of city hall much to the excitement of Jen Cray.

The Spill Canvas

Event Reviews

Brittany Sturges attempts to decipher all the hype surrounding South Dakota’s own, The Spill Canvas during an eventful Philly gig.

Jimmy Eat World/Silverchair

Event Reviews

O-Rock 105.9 may have really dropped the ball on this year’s annual No Snow Show by splitting it into two separate shows, but at least they scored Jimmy Eat World and Silverchair to co-headline the second night of the event. Jen Cray was amongst the masses at Orlando’s House of Blues trying to convince themselves that the pair was enough to justify the pricey ticket.

Between the Buried & Me

Event Reviews

Progressive metalcore masters Between the Buried & Me surprised everyone when their Orlando show sold out in advance, leaving many fans scrambling the streets begging for tickets. Jen Cray squeezed inside for a surprisingly friendly evening of new metal.

Down

What began as a side project for Pantera members Phillip Anselmo and Rex Brown has since become a supergroup within the metal world. Down brought their metal alumni to Orlando, and Jen Cray got herself an invite.

Aesop Rock

Event Reviews

Despite the obvious pitfalls of playing on a giant Transformer in a “backyard”, Aesop Rocks this block party-esque show at Orlando’s Anti-Pop Music Festival. S D Green was there to drink the $2.50 PBRs.

Against Me!

Event Reviews

The Orlando date of the Against Me! tour was scheduled in competition with the annual Anti Pop Fest, but the band’s loyal followers could not be deterred. Jen Cray skipped out on the multitude of alternate shows happening downtown to spend another evening with these Gainesville boys.

Dinosaur Jr

Event Reviews

The freshly reunited Dinosaur Jr. prove that you don’t have to create a big PR circus to get people excited about your comeback. The numbers may have been modest, but those who made it out to the band’s Orlando show at The Club@Firestone – Jen Cray among them – had a Sunday night to remember.

Brand New

Event Reviews

The two-night stint of Brand New and Thrice at Orlando’s House of Blues sold out days in advance. Jen Cray managed to get inside on the closing night.

Jens Lekman

Event Reviews

Jens Lekman came all the way from Gothenburg, Sweden to Tallahassee, FL to play some songs and laugh at our warm Florida Novembers. Omar DeLaRosa wore a sweater to the show, anyway.

Big D and the Kids Table

Event Reviews

It was another night of dirty, rowdy punk rock as Big D and the Kids Table brought their Steady Riot Tour to Orlando. Jen Cray got knocked around in the pit, but still managed to make her way out and report back.

Chuck Ragan

Event Reviews

A fast departure from Brand New’s show at the House of Blues brought me to the much more laid back vibe at The Social for the Chuck Ragan gig. The Hot Water Music frontman was not the only famous frontman who decided to leave his band at home and go it alone for an acoustic evening. Jen Cray was in for a quadruple bill of talent!

HIM

Event Reviews

Finland’s finest export, HIM, filled up Orlando’s Hard Rock Live with hordes of gothcentric metal fans… and Jen Cray.
