Mr. Quintron and Miss Pussycat

Event Reviews

If you didn’t catch Mr. Quintron and Miss Pussycat’s Jacksonville performance, as our own Matthew Moyer did, then you missed out on one seriously artistic explosion of wonder.

Phosphorescent

Event Reviews

Phosphorescent bathed Jacksonville in a pool of saturated country rock, fairly drenching Matthew Moyer in the glory.

Of Montreal

Event Reviews

With a stage show more akin to performance art than rock concert, Of Montreal is anything but subtle. Jen Cray did not wear a pink leotard or face paint to the Orlando show, but she enjoyed it all the same.

James McMurtry

Event Reviews

James McMurtry sings about economic struggle, working class woes, and corrupt governments. Jen Cray was not the only Orlando fan who found his Southern Gothic folk rock soothing this holiday season.

Sarah Brightman

Event Reviews

Sara Brightman shines at UCF, delivering a gem of a show despite the sports arena’s plague of muddy sound.

The Toadies

Event Reviews

Reunited after a 2001 breakup and toting a new album and tour (alongside People in Planes), The Toadies bring grunge back in a big way. Jen Cray is one of many Orlando fans reveling in the murky merriment.

Wilderness

Event Reviews

Wilderness stops three hours from where Aaron Shaul lives and he is fully committed to leaving the city to find them and prog rock salvation.

Coldplay

Event Reviews

Ink 19’s Jen Cray trades her low expectations for staunch admiration when she experiences the charm of Coldplay firsthand. Almost as good as U2?

Low Vs. Diamond

Event Reviews

It takes some serious skills to make moody, indie rock sound new and fresh, but Low Vs. Diamond does just that. Jen Cray was wooed by their swagger and elegance at a recent Orlando date.

The Rumble Strips

Event Reviews

U.K. act Rumble Strips may have brought the rain, but their neo-ska tunes were all sunshine and big puffy “Clouds.” S D Green slogged through the downpour to catch a glimpse of the surprising source for Charlie Waller’s big, big voice.

Polar Bear Club

Event Reviews

As part of a pseudo-after-party for Gainesville, Florida’s punk rock weekend (The Fest), Polar Bear Club attempts to make new punk sound classic. Jen Cray is entertained, though not entirely convinced.

Tegan and Sara

Event Reviews

Tegan and Sara, City and Colour, and Girl in a Coma rock at the Electric Factory in Philly.

Fall Out Boy

Event Reviews

Fall Out Boy ditched the large venues for an intimate show in Philadelphia.

Anberlin

Event Reviews

In support of their new release, New Surrender, Florida-rockers Anberlin returned to Philly.

Cobra Starship

Event Reviews

Cobra Starship decided to bring a bit of sass to Philadelphia with the SassyBack Tour, and Brittany Sturges revels in the guilty pleasure.

Rise Against

Event Reviews

Jen Cray is thoroughly rocked by a triple bill of Rise Against, Thrice, and Alkaline Trio. All killer, no filler? The point can be argued…

Pinback

Event Reviews

Pinback and sBACH rock the Paradise, and turn Addam Donnelly’s frown upside down.
