IR Orlando #10
Wow, I’m finally in double digits! It’s been fun so far – I hope to bring you lots more great Central Florida music in future shows.
I’d love some feedback from my listeners: where do you listen to the show?
If you’re in Central Florida, have you fallen in love with any bands that you had never heard before? Have you caught any of them live?
Biogenic | Without You
Biogenic came together in late 2005. They pride themselves on the collaborative nature of their songwriting – every member of the band has a hand in the process. They are currently working on their debut CD. Catch them Nov. 2 at AKA Lounge in Orlando.

An excellent band that I’ve played before, spacebar signed with their label,
Silent Majority in April 2006. They are hard at work on their new full-length record. Catch them at the Anti*Pop Music Fest in November
Danny Feedback | Operation Chop Chop
They have described their sound as David Bowie and Sonic Youth on crack, and unabashedly say the band is in it for the money, the drugs and fame. At their live shows they aim to be the band you remember, whether they go on first or last. Their debut CD is ‘The Worker King and the Queen Bee.’
Nov 10, 8 pm @ Copper Rocket Pub, Orlando, FL
The Queues | Harmony

Holidaysburg | Stay Here Tonight
The 4 members of Holidaysburg have put their previous experience together to meet ‘somewhere in the middle of punk rock’s fuzz-laden urgency and the lazy Sunday jangle of classic country music’.
In the summer of 2005 the band released its debut record, ‘A Better November;’ a ten-song chronicle of good times and hindsight, low flying planes and powerlines, friends in cold places, and Jesus.’ Available at their shows and at CD Baby.
