This episode will give you a taste of the Orange You Glad music festival, which will be hitting Orlando from May 14 – 17. The festival will feature lots of local bands, along with some terrific not-so-local bands. There are five venues: Will’s Pub, Stardust, Redlight Redlight, Peacock Room, and Uncle Lou’s (and several in-store performances at Park Avenue CDs).
