Free shows this week!!! (Sept. 18-24)

September 17, 2013

Man, it sucks being broke. I know. But it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on EVERYTHING. This fall, in an effort to open eyes to cool music stuff happening in Orlando, I’ll be publishing weekly lists of all the free shows you can crash for no cover. It’s just too nice to stay indoors. So fly the coop, I promise, there’s little risk involved.

chicken9/18 Mike Dunn @ the Smiling Bison, 10 p.m. (He knows all your favorite songs)
9/18 Ten Pints of Truth featuring Eugene Snowden @ Lil Indies, 10 p.m. (Orlando’s soul treasure)
9/19 Buster Keaton and friends @ Tanquerays, 10:30 p.m. (funky, jazzy hip-hop lovers)
9/20 OneBeat @ Timucua White House, 7 p.m. (25 hand-picked musicians from all over the world, collaborating)
9/21 Eddie Money @ Orange County Courthouse, 4 p.m. (two tickets to paradise, please)
9/21 Morningbell @ College Park Yoga, 6 p.m. (one of my favorite records of the year, plus a vegan potluck catered by Woodlands?!)
