ORLANDO REEKS OF MUSIC



I had a dream last night. While I slumbered, I dreamt I was in some bizarre club and now that I think of it, perhaps the word “nightmare” is a more apt description. The music sucked, crowd had all the energy of an 8:00 am high school assembly, and the bands displayed all the originality and pizzazz of 3 pound bag of dirt. This was my dream. Fortunately, I woke up in Orlando. Want to know what Orlando was like during Emergenza’s second go in central Florida? Just take the opposite of everything I just wrote. Great crowds came to see good bands make some good noise. Overall a good weekend featuring acrobatics (both physical and guitar-oriented), ear-piercing metal, smooth blues licks, and keyboard-fueled pop. Crowd favorites Smilin’ Mcgee opened the weekend on Thursday night, displaying musical ability and crowd interaction that will send them to Emergenza’s next Orlando round at Firestone. Joining them will be Lucid Fly, who deserve mention just for willingly abandoning their arsenal of various effects processors, do dads, and gadgets. Musicians take notice!!! You can lose all that shit and still seriously kick ass. Lucid Fly serves as a prime example.  Snafu definitely wins the spirit award for the weekend, bringing on stage their exceptionally female “extras” to move along with their set. I’m not sure what got the biggest applause, the gyrating girls or Snafu’s wonderfully wicked set. That same night, Pretty Ugly put together one of the highlights of the weekend. This four piece treated everyone to a set of punk/ska/reggae/rock numbers, holding on to advance to Emergenza’s semi-round. Killjoy presented their special blend of rip-your-face-off-metal on Friday night, running through 6 progressively ear-shattering songs while inducing just enough crowd movement to make people nervous. On the other end of the spectrum you might find Philler, who opened up Saturday night. These self described “electro-rockers” found themselves on stage playing to a crowd that had just barely woken up, and was it need of further jostling. As is the mark of any good band, Philler responded to the challenge, demanding and receiving attention from everyone in the room. Closing out the weekend on Sunday were 7 bands to chase away those “Damnit, the weekend is over blues.” There For Tomorrow brought with them a packed house, none of which were disappointed. How can you be when your favorite band takes a break mid song, climbs off stage, and displays a few acrobatics on the floor. 7 Blue Skies was another noteworthy band that evening, bringing a fresh blend of rock/alternative (whatever the hell that means) to Backbooth.
