Baby “Weather Girl” @ Ugly Orange House Show

Oh, the memories. At the first ever Ugly Orange house show in July 2016, Kaley Honeycutt’s bright beachy vibes rocked the small room as BABY. Some of my other favorite babies, Always Nothing, captured the infectious “Weather Girl” in a live video that makes shoots the nostalgia right into my heart. Catch their pics from that night here, and see pics from that same night of DONKNG here.

FIONA SIGHT FOR SORE EYES VIDEO GOLDBABY ORLANDO

FIONA Releases “Sight For Sore Eyes” video | GOLDBABY out Nov 18

The artist formerly known as Mr. 3 is having a great November. FIONA dropped “Galaxies” on Wednesday through EARMILK and graced Mass Appeal today with the video for the glittery, R&B-tinged single, “Sight For Sore Eyes.” Produced by ORL artistic collective Always Nothing, the moody visual is full of colorful shadows, both eerie and bright at the same time. FIONA mopes around his house party, bummed that his love interest (played by ORL looping empress Tiger Fawn) showed up dancing on another man. He raps confident bars throughout the song, elevating this woman and all her imperfections. FIONA is even approached by another woman but shows absolutely no interest in anyone other than his “Sight For Sor Eyes.”

just some shows. (11/12 – 11/14)

While perusing my never-ending borage of Facebook event invites (not complaining, I like doing things.), I noticed that there’s some good shit happening this week. Too much to ignore. These are by no means the only excellent events happening this week, but they’re the ones I’m not missing. Enjoy.

THURSDAY

A Rock & Roll Picture Show

Thursday, Uncle Lou’s is serving-up a hearty plate of Central Florida rock & roll. Included in this six band lineup are rowdy duo Dose Amigos, lo-fi loner BLCH, and The Ashtray, an alternative rock outfit that features TVW writer Andres “Andy” Andrade. Dubbed the “Rock & Roll Picture Show,” this evening will convince your eardrums that it’s the weekend.

FRIDAY

Always Nothing One Year Anniversary

Orlando creative conglomerate Always Nothing never do anything by the book. On Friday, they turn one! Their birthday party is sure to be a unique combination of art and live music. The appropriately peculiar Moon Jelly will be putting on their spectacular live show — past shows have incorporated elaborate lighting rigs, projections, and neon glasses that fragment light. All of this madness serves as the canvas for the raw artistic talent that is the band’s four musicians. Joining them will be Gainesville producer Euglossine and two NYC atmospheric artists, Cuddle Information and There Are No Thieves. Not all of the night’s info is posted yet, including the location, so keep an eye on the event page.

SATURDAY

Music On Mills

Four stages. Thirty Orlando acts. One charming street. The second annual Music on Mills festival is destined to be one of the biggest events of the year. The unstoppable Jessica Pawli has pulled together an all-Orlando lineup showcasing a myriad (the only appropriate word) of bands, solo artists, and DJs, playing at a few Mills hotspots: BART, St. Matthew’s, Wally’s, and Will’s Pub.Proceeds from the $10 ticket ($15 on Saturday) will help fund public art and safety projects in the Mills 50 District. It’s been interesting watching this event take shape — I even helped select a few of the acts (thanks Jessica for including me!).

Catch Jessica every Friday on WPRK from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Every other Friday, I’m on with Mitch Foster from Shows I Go To!

DO NOT MISS: ARK, The New Lows, Common Man, Someday River, Thrift House, and Zoya Zafar.

Ladies Get Lit

On the same night as Music On Mills, Lil Indies (the bar adjacent to Will’s) is housing Ladies Get Lit, a celebration of Orlando’s literary females, hosted by three Orlando zines: let’s kiss (run by TVW contributor Karina Curto), Phosphene Girl, and Tittie-Thyme. Each will be slinging a new issue of their respective zine while musicians and spoken word artists take turns on the mic.

Wet Nurse – “Over It” (video by Always Nothing)

On September 25, Wet Nurse will release their second full-length album, So It Goes, via Recess Records. Directly after, the PBR punk quartet will embark on a two month, 37 show tour of the US and Canada. And don’t fret Orlando people. We get a date of our own, October 23, a glorious homecoming a mere week before FEST. (all dates here)

In preparation for this goodness, Wet Nurse and Orlando creative collective Always Nothing collaborated on the video for “Over It,” the album’s second songThe four tormented souls of Wet Nurse shotgun beers, smoke cigarettes, drink more beers, and spin in office chairs outside of an abandoned auto garage. Sorry mom. We just want to have fun. Don’t worry; we’ll end the night with some pizza…and more beers.

This video moves fast and packs a punch. The debauchery is woven into quick shots of the band ripping through the song at Uncle Lou’s. The chaos looks beautiful. This quality has become expected from Always Nothing, who’ve shot with fellow Orlandians (Common Man and Sailor Ripley) and international acts (Screaming Females). Oh, and I may or may not have interviewed Wet Nurse about the upcoming album. I’ll never tell. Enjoy.
