Maybe you knew we do shows. Maybe you went to this one. We had a ball at Spacebar on The Lord’s favorite day. The bands (in order) that played were: The Death Tremors, The Welzeins, Donkng, Harsh Radish, and Slumberjack. Enjoy.

Our next event is at Orlando Fringe Fest and is completely free.

Wet Nurse – “Belly Hurts” (Live @ The Space)

belly hurts

What makes your belly hurt? My belly hurts because I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (yup). It seems the ladies of Wet Nurse also suffer from IBS, as their stomach pain erupts from a variety of sources. In my experience, I find rock n’ roll is the best medicine for a stomach ache.

That’s the exact cure I found two Saturdays ago at Polylust Burlesque’s Gender Bender Homecumming Fundraiser (that my friends, is called a segway). The night was bonkers. Great performances by Wet Nurse, The Areolas, Luscious Lisa, and the Polylust troop. This video is from said event and captures a currently unreleased, but I believe already recorded, song. They’re cookin’ up something, and I want to know about it. Experience more of the night at the holy David Wilcox’s YouTube Channel. Enjoy.

Also, you may notice a cameo appearance from both me and TVW’s OG Photographer, Karina. Cause we coo’.

Hometown Heroes: The Pauses Release 1994 Show Footage

Last month, The Pauses, Wet Nurse, and The New Lows all covered songs from 1994, a year that produced a baffling amount of legendary songs. The show was a big hit, containing tributes from the obvious, The Pauses playing Soundgarden, to the more surprising, Wet Nurse taking on Ace of Base. If you missed the show, you can still peek into the night, and watch The Pauses bang out four tunes from the year that rocked. My personal favorite is the megaphone on “Vasoline”. Enjoy.


Live Music: Baths @ The Social

Wednesday night was awesome. I found out around 5 p.m. that I had won tickets to see Baths! I hadn’t really been acquainted with Baths, but the group of friends I was with praised his stuff. He did not disappoint.  Thanks to Shows I Go To for saving me $30 on tickets! Enjoy.

Splish-splash I was takin’ an overused pun.

Baths wasn’t alone, Time Wharp and Groundislava were two amazing openers, and by the time Baths took the stage, everyone was already pumped. The place was  packed, I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold-out, and the sound system at The Social was hitting hard. At one point during Baths set, Will Wiensfield, sole singer and composer of all of Baths’ music, said that the bass was so intense that his equipment was jumping around beneath him. The Social has always been my favorite venue in Orlando. It’s the perfect size, and the stage is set up in a way where everyone can see, even if it’s sold-out.


But, back to Baths. Like I said, I was going in expecting nothing, and I was astounded by the show. Wiensfield has charisma on stage that exceeds most of today’s rock outfits, and his precise skill at creating magnificent soundscapes rivals that of traditional artists. Baths is precisely what I have grown to love about electronic artists. He paints a portrait with sound, adding minute and exact details creating layers that build into a whole piece. I think it’s safe to say that Baths is better live than on record, and that’s the highest of complements. Songs like “Lovely Bloodflow” had added intensity, it’s easy to tell that Baths put in the extra effort to make these song sound different in a live setting.  Between songs he was extra friendly to the crowd, giving shout outs, telling stories, asking the audience, “how many of you know that I’m gay?” His closer, “No Eyes,” was by far my favorite of the night. During the chorus he went so far as to scream, “But is only a matter of, come and fuck me!” After that, he thanked everyone and left. Great night.
