Join Us for a More intimate Saturday Night at Shakai Sushi Lounge with NY based DJ/ Producer Shahar and the opening sound by Pacho Berrocal & Bryan J.


srael-bred and NY-based Shahar is one of the NY underground’s top rising talents. His consistency has rewarded him with top billing at festivals and clubs including Hyte, EDC, Electric Zoo, Output, Pacha and Cielo. A style all his own, Shahar’s brand of dark, pulsing and often atmospheric techno has earned him the respect of Hector, Chaim, Gel Abril and Danny Tenaglia amongst others.

His sets groove while simultaneously clenching your gut: A minimal approach with maximal results. At just 23 years old Shahar is able to master rooms of all shapes, sizes and crowds; a skill often lost in today’s dance music soundscape.

Cory Branan (solo acoustic)
with guests Austin Miller, Henry Toland & Christina Bowers

doors at 9 pm / 18+ / $10-12
tickets available at: http://www.willspub.org/event/829137-cory-branan-orlando/ & Park Ave CDs

Throughout his career, Cory Branan has been too punk for country, too country for punk, too Memphis for Nashville, and probably a little too Cory Branan for anyone’s damn good. He has proven himself as a top-notch songwriter (Chuck Ragan recently called him “the greatest songwriter of our generation”), fierce lyricist (in Lucero’s “Tears Don’t Matter Much” they sing that Cory has, “a way with words that’ll bring you to your knees”), and a hyperdynamic performer with the ability to fingerpick finer than ‘60s Greenwich Village folkies and brutally strum like a proto punk shredder. Across three albums, he’s made collective struggles poetic and breakthroughs into sympathetic acts of populist heroism.

Cory Branan is a natural-born storyteller, his seemingly conversational, painstakingly crafted anecdotes benefitting from a hard-eyed stare at hydra-headed life experiences. Not unlike his musical and literary pedestal sitters, from John Prine and Leonard Cohen to Raymond Carver and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cory’s gift for detail and phrase-turning is a thing of wonder.

Cory has a well-documented history with groups like former label mates Lucero, musicians of his ilk who trend toward the rawer end of roots music (The Loved Ones’ Dave Hause, Chuck Ragan, The Hold Steady, The Gaslight Anthem, Two Cow Garage, Drag the River’s Jon Snodgrass), and rock stars like Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional), who has covered Cory’s gorgeous “Tall Green Grass” and been a reoccurring tour mate.

Never one to shy away from an itinerary of non-stop cross-country shows, Cory possesses a unique performance style that enables him to gravelly sing a coy double entendre in one ear of the audience, while yelling the most beautiful love song into the other.


5. Social Menace Manda presents ~BASS DREAMS~ vol 1… STORY TIME GRIME: From 9pm to 2:30am at Venue 578, located 578 N Orange Ave, Orlando, Florida 32801.

Infilt8 at Sandwich Bar June 19

Words from Facebook:

Infiltr8:Celebr8 and Listen Carefully are proud to bring you All day I Dream / Innervisions artist Jon Charnis. Making the journey from LA to Orlando to deliver his deep and dreamy sound to your ears. We cant wait for his first time in Orlando. Can you dance to this beat ?

****Jon Charnis****


****Mathew Scot****

More about Jon Charnis

After years of producing music under various guises, Jon Charnis found his true calling in the slower, darker, and deeper shades of house music. This re-invention was part of a bigger shift in the artist’s life, as he relocated from Washington DC to Los Angeles, and launched a new moniker under his actual birth name. From there on, it didn’t take long to make his impact felt. His track ‘Prophecy’ was spotted by Innervisions boss, Dixon, who signed the track to his prestigious Berlin based label after road testing it at some of the world’s premier parties. He followed this up with an official remix of Art Department’s Burning Man anthem, ‘Robot Heart’ on No.19 Music, a collaboration with production partners Lovecraft and Prab K. The streak continued with releases on more top labels including Supernature, All Day I Dream, and Leftroom Records.

As a DJ, Jon Charnis’ international profile has risen just as quickly. With gigs at world renowned spots including Space, Ibiza and Sonar, Barcelona, 2013 saw Jon playing across the globe in Berlin, Munich, London, and Amsterdam. Further, 2014 has already seen appearances across the US, South America, and Europe, as this fast rising musician continues to bring his unique brand of melodic, powerful, and expertly crafted music to the dancefloor.

Jon Charnis has received support by world renowned DJs such as Tale Of Us, Dixon, Ame, Art Department, Thugfucker, John Digweed, Steve Lawler, and Audiofly to name a few.

HEIGHTS may be a new name to your ears, but he’s been in the scene for over a decade. Hailing from New York, he has traveled much of Europe, and now calls Washington D.C. home.

He is curator of HereAndNow, a monthly podcast with acclaimed international guests, as well as parties of the same brand. As his productions pick up and his reputation grows, look for HEIGHTS at a club or festival near you!

The Mailboxes
(Chattanooga, TN)

David McCorkle

“Trust me, I understand the hardship of having an odd name. And not that rock music necessarily maintains seriousness as a requisite, but having a band moniker like Zap Dragon & the Attack (June 1, Will’s Pub) makes things hard for you before you play a single note. I’m probably not the only one to ever wonder how this Orlando combo can possibly …be good enough to overcome such a silly name. It’s a reasonable question. Then again, it all depends on what you’re going for. But it turns out they’re not some sort of comic-nerd band at all. In fact, their deal is a shiny, skipping ball of jaunty rock, folk twangs and pop hooks that’s cloyingly peppy. They’re often a little south of goofy,but their sweet guilelessness has much more traction and potential when they slow things down and dial it in. Their melodies breathe deeper and their heart beats louder. That’s when their set hit moments of clarity. And it’s where their hope lies.” -Bao Le-Huu

6. Tuesday, June 16: Speakeasy: The Slackass Edition: From 9pm to 11pm at Will’s Pub, located 1042 N Mills Ave, Orlando, Florida 32803.

Speakeasy Slackass Edition

Words from Facebook:

Orlando’s hardest-twerking spoken word night is back! The Orlando Fringe Festival was clearly the better excuse to stay out drinking on a weeknight, so Speakeasy took the month of May off. Whaddaya gonna do, fire us?

But seriously, we’re sorry. We assure you we’re open (mike). And we’re totally going to make it up to you in June. We’re gonna try really really hard, and Tod promises to remember everybody’s name when they sign up. We’ll even clean the spiderwebs off the chairs before you sit in them.

Actually, nah. That sounds like a lot of work. Let’s keep this summer vacation rolling with the theme of SLOTH for June 16. Writers, you’re lazily encouraged to show up with rants against the 9-to-5, or hymns to the zen of slack. We guess you could interpret the theme as an excuse to recycle some old stories, but the usual penalties will apply. Which is to say the audience will fall asleep on you. Which is pretty appropriate.

Enough with the hard sell. Speakeasy begins at 9 pm sharp June 16 at Will’s Pub, and we do mean sharp – DJ BMF’s Soul Shakedown takes over at 11. Get up in it, then take Wednesday off. Life’s too short to work hungover.

7. Tuesday, June 16: SOUL SHAKEDOWN: From 11pm to 2am at Will’s Pub, 1042 N Mills Ave, Orlando, Florida 32803.

Soul Shakedown

Words from Facebook:

Introducing a brand new weekly foray into soul shakin’ good music! Hosted by Phat-N-Jazzy / 45 Friday resident DJ BMF, Soul Shakedown is an all-out dance party celebrating decades of uptempo funk and soul music. From Motown to Northern Soul to 80s disco boogie to P-Funk… we got it! Start practicing your Soul Train line moves now because like the Godfather says “we’re gonna have a funky good time”.

9. Wednesday, June 17: Marc With a C’s “ANYTHING GOES” series (with Grace Trotta and Spooky Steve): From 7:45pm to 11pm at The Geek Easy, located 114 S Semoran Blvd Suite 6, Winter Park, Florida 32792.

Anything Goes June 17

Words from Facebook:

A new (possibly) monthly and VERY FREE AND INTERACTIVE residency gig from Marc With a C! Here’s how it rolls: once a month, Marc plays a set of songs. He cannot repeat any of the songs from month to month. In the audience, there will be a bucket where you can vote for songs you want to hear, but… the songs haven’t been written yet! So, you’ll jot down something you want to hear Marc write and sing about. Towards the end of the show, Marc will pick five subjects at random out of the box, the audience will vote for their favorite. By the next show? Marc must have that song ready to premiere for you. You’ll get exactly what you want, and redundancies are a thing of the past during these unpredictable gigs!

Who is opening?
– Grace Trotta (very funny local comedian)
Spooky Steve (disturbing nerdcore, not for the faint of heart)

These openers were picked by popular vote from The Geek Easy’s monthly open mic night. Maybe you’ll open the next one!

The show is free, but we only get paid when you buy some tasty beverages and munchies from the bar. Come on out, try a ‘brand new thing’, and let’s take a really weird voyage together!

10. Wednesday, June 17: The Imperial’s Acoustic Soundcheck w/ Lauren Lester: From 9pm to 12am at The Imperial at Washburn Imports, located 1800 N Orange Ave, Orlando, Florida 32804.

Show starts at 10 pm, come early for a good seat!

Jason Fifi is the result of a botched Charles Darwin cloning experiment. He has been doing comedy for over or about 15 years, and making people laugh for 10. Those first few years were tough. He is here to make people laugh, think, and love.

Kurt Keller is Montgomery’s own bearded wonder. He has been doing comedy a few years now, and single handedly brought back the Amish look. He likes his craft beers made out of hops, barley, buttons, and scrap fabric. No one knows what sort of secrets he keeps under his hat, as the smell of it is impossible to get over.

Trey Brown is from scenic Montgomery Alabama. Before he got into comedy, he was the King of the Ottoman Empire. At least that’s what he called the foot stools in his blanket fort. After comedy, he realized that making people laugh was his true calling. So he staged a coup and implemented a constitutional monarchy and disbanded his vast empire. He also likes dogs and beer.

Henri Cheramie is a bleeding heart liberal originally from Louisiana, now living in Montgomery, Alabama. He has seven years of film school under his belt and has been doing the comedian thing off and on for a little over twelve years. Currently he is gathering footage for a documentary about the futility of doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result each time, otherwise known as Stand Up Comedy. Also, he volunteers his time counseling wayward teenage badgers.

Crayon Carvings by Hoang Tran
June 18 2015
6PM – 10PM
Through July 10
29 S. Orange Ave.
Orlando, FL 32801
At CityArts Factory

About The Artist-
Wax Nostalgic is the work of Hoang Tran, an artist residing in Sunnyvale, CA. Hoang carves geek and pop culture inspired characters out of everyday crayons. He draws influence from a variety of sources including movies, television, animation, comic books and video games.

Each crayon is hand carved using precise dental instruments under a bright light with the naked eye. The multiple colors that some of the carvings have are not made with paint. Instead wax from other colored crayons is melted and carefully applied to the main crayon. Thus each carving is made completely out of crayon wax.

Hoang enjoys combining the nostalgia of crayons from our childhood with the nostalgia of our favorite characters we grew up loving. By using crayons in an entirely new way, he hopes to encourage creative thinking outside the (crayon) box along with showing how ordinary things can become extraordinary.

Awareness Month Art Show

Words from Facebook:

Orlando heavyweights and art community supernovas, the B-Side Artists, assemble once again for their annual group show exhibit “B-Side Artists present… Awareness Month,” June 18th (6-10pm) at City Arts Factory as apart of the Orlando Downtown Arts District’s 3rd Thursday.

As you may recall, last year’s B-Side exhibit was a celebration of the history of the B-Side Artists and included an impressive number of creative participants from the immense artist roster that the group boasts. The exhibit also presented a brand new look and attitude from core member Chris Tobar called “Native,” introduced the digital side of Orlando’s unofficial mayor Swamburger, and was ground zero for the image wellness installation by artist SKIP and photographer Tasha Copley entitled “Franchise: The Ideal Woman,” which quickly sparked a movement worldwide and received press from such outlets as Huffington Post and Cosmopolitan Magazine.

This year the roster will be scaled down to include the more core members of the group, and will focus on bigger and larger pieces, brand new themes and ideas, and a grandeur and wow-factor that has not been seen before by this crew. This is not a new beginning or a reinvention by any means, this is just what happens when you give a group of some of Orlando’s best creative minds the free reign to let loose and the wall space to do it with.
Expect works from Swamburger, Chris Tobar, SKIP, Lucy Fur, Peterson Guerrier, G Lemus, Peter Van Flores III, Tr3 and new member Jon Glassman at City Arts Factory, Thursday, June 18th from 6-10pm. The exhibit is all ages and free to the public.

Tommy Frenzy, current lead singer and guitarist of NYCs Tuff Darts is on the road with Tommy Frenzy’s HARD DRIVE.

The Tuff Darts were the godfathers of punk, coming out of CBGBs in NYC in the late 70’s. Their self titled album on Warner Brothers records is still considered to be one of the best punk rock records to come out of the Bowery NYC. Their song All for the Love of Rock N Roll is the battle cry of punk rock years gone by.

Tommy has played with or opened for The Ramones, The Dead Boys, The Jam, The Stranglers, The Talking Heads, Lou Gramm (Foreigner) Pete Townsend, John Waite, 38 Special, Cyndi Lauper, Blondie, The Runaways (Joan Jett) Ian Hunter and Blue Oyster Cult.

On this tour, he will be featuring mostly Tuff Darts classics like Your love is like nuclear waste, All for the Love, Rats and She’s Dead as well as others. Tommy will be joined onstage with Roger Ain’t Home (bass) and Tony Tourettes (drums)n to prove that “LOUD AND FAST STILL RULES!

Vintage Central Florida Music Photos by Jim Leatherman

With his permission, I raided the Facebook photo archives of Jim Leatherman.  For over thirty years, Jim Leatherman has documented Central Florida’s music scene. This collection dates between 1985 to 2001. Many bands are no longer together.  (Some may have their music on YouTube.) Many places no longer exists or changed names.  Included also are pics of Miles Davis, Everclear and Iggy Pop.

Mr. Leatherman, thanx for allowing this blog to share a slice of Orlando’s music history.

Meridian is the rootsy alt-rock project of Max Stern, frontman of Cleveland punk band Signals Midwest, as well as his younger brother Jake. The siblings have played together for years, with their first official release as Meridian, the folksy, acoustic Aging Truths, released in 2012. “Aging Truths was essentially a bedroom project Jake and I took into the studio and attempted to flesh out over a few days,” says Max Stern. “The Cathedral was very different—from the start, it was clear that it was going to be a full-band record. It was really special to watch it come to life over the span of several months.”

Henrietta was started by a few good friends in various bedrooms, basements, living rooms, and questionable spaces through out central Florida in the summer of 2008.
