  • Summerbirds In The Cellar

    Summerbirds In The Cellar

    The four perfectionists who run the Summerbirds In The Cellar machine consistently put on the best show of any Central Florida band I’ve seen. Billed behind them on a late night gig at Orlando’s BackBooth was Attached Hands, For Ex Lovers Only, Derek Lyn Plastic. Staying until the very late, late end was Jen Cray.

    Takers and Leavers EP (Park The Van). Review by Jen Cray.

  • The Format

    The Format

    The ambitious sounds of The Format are Pet Sounds-era The Beach Boys for the Fall Out Boy audience. Unorthodox instrumentation, perfectly crafted melodies, and beautiful vocals that have the slightest hint of modern day emo whine, but not enough to make Jen Cray cringe.

  • Cheap Trick

    Cheap Trick

    Not too many bands could recruit Pearl Jam as an opening act, but the boys from Rockford, Illinois once did. Steve Stav, who once asked his mom if she could knit him a checkered sweater, corrals guitarist Rick Nielsen for an expectedly humorous look at America’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll show.

  • Remora

    Brian John Mitchell is a busy man leading Remora and running the Silber Records label, but he throws our Stein Haukland a few moments to get us up to speed on slo-core.

    Til The Wheels Fall Off (Signature Sounds). Review by Stein Haukland.

  • Dead Kennedys

    East Bay Ray proves there is life after Jello for the Dead Kennedys. Vinnie Apicella gets it all.
