Motörhead

It was a night of metal and moshing in the sold-out House of Blues, with Motörhead and Anthrax in town. Carl F Gauze elbowed his way through the madness.

Ted Nugent

Event Reviews

Charging faster than an angry Great White Buffalo, the Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent, unleashed a rock and roll love fest of Gonzo proportions in Orlando, nearly steamrolling Christopher Long.

Alkaline Trio

Event Reviews

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.

Bad Religion

Event Reviews

Bad Religion are still exciting after 30+ years of making music, as Jen Cray discovered at a recent Orlando date.

Passion Pit gives concertgoers a song and dance to bounce to and a healthy bunch of streamers and sweat for Anna Allred to shake off at night’s end.

The Cult turns the House of Blues in Orlando into the House of Good Mojo, not only delivering a killer set themselves, but allowing for Florida fans to get their first taste of a brand new stage of Against Me.

The Used

The Used allow fans to check their propriety at the door and lose themselves in the throes of melodic noise, though it was their opening act, Dead Sara, in whom Jen Cray became lost.

Thrice

Ten years of The Kills may not mean much to some, but to many – Jen Cray included – it means a decade’s worth of killer music that’s worth celebrating.

Anthrax

Event Reviews

Orlando fans went metal-thrashing mad when the Anthrax/Testament tour recently decimated the House of Blues. Christopher Long was deep in the pit of it.

New Found Glory

Event Reviews

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.

Foster the People

Event Reviews

Foster the People caught a lucky break with their first single, but prove to be more than just the flavor of the month at a recent Orlando show that made a believer out of Jen Cray.

Erasure
