(5/6) A Big Birthday Bonanza at Uncle Lou’s

We don’t need a reason to party, but we got one. Vanessa, the amazing drummer from Wet Nurse, has a birthday next week, and on May 6, a celebration will spill from the walls of Uncle Lou’s, flooding Mill’s 50. Wet Nurse will playing – hopefully after some bday shots – and Me Chinese and Thee Wilt Chamberlain will be providing additional songs to get shitfaced to. I’ve seen Me Chinese drink, and believe me, if the other bands keep up, next Wednesday has the potential to be the drunkest show of the year. Enjoy.

Live Music: “Greetings from Orlando” Release Show (feat. DoGs, Thee Wilt Chamberlain, The Welzeins, and Wet Nurse)

And you thought I was done talking about Greetings from Orlando. Hell no. Wednesday’s show marked the official release of the compilation, and featured performances by numerous bands who took part in the Orlando tape. Oh you missed it? Too bad. Kill yourself. There will never be a show of the same caliber. But, there probably will be. This is Orlando. Enjoy.

Wet Nurse is playing a secret show TONIGHT @ The Peacock Room. I sadly have to work, but go out and wish them well!

I reviewed Greetings from Orlando in its entirety. READ PARTS ONEDEUCETHIRDNEXT TO LAST, AND FIN NOW!!!!

DoGs

You would think that with all my journalistic expertise, I would know the importance of punctuality. Nope. I fucked around, and missed DoGs. But, I did I run into the band at Lou’s, and they are awesome guys. I’ve been giving their album Sports Beer some pretty heavy rotation, and thoroughly enjoy all of it. You’ll hear more about this three-piece very soon. They’re also playing a handful of shows in March, with the last one on the 29th @ Will’s.


Thee Wilt Chamberlain

Thee Wilt Chamberlain brought the feel good energy to Lou’s with their instrumental surf rock sound. In recent news, the band inspired gourmet fast food chain Taco Bell to try breakfast. But, these entrepreneurs true talent lies in their music. On Wednesday, Thee Wilt Chamberlain dished out song after song of head bobbing, toe tapping, hand jiving jams. When’s the last time anyone from Taco Bell did that? Your move TB.


The Welzeins

The Welzeins did what they do best. They brought high energy, catchy tunes, and left bodies in their wake. The high point of their set was the electrifying “Zhark Attack,” the only song in recent history to deserve The Rock’s signature adjective. No date has been announced for the release of their debut-album, but their performance at Lou’s made me giddy with anticipation. Hopefully, they will be able to translate their explosive onto CD without destroying all of Orlando’s eardrums. Though, that would be impressive. Your move boys.


Wet Nurse

Every wonder about a universe without Wet Nurse? Well in this hellish place, both the compilation and the show don’t exist. Those poor bastards. Wet Nurse, freshly practiced and ready to tour, pulled out all the stops. New songs. Old songs. Mosh pits. Guitar solos. AND THOSE HARMONIZED VOCALS. I cannot get enough of this band’s ability to have perfect two part vocal melodies. This was by far the best Wet Nurse show I have ever been to, and SXSW is not ready for fuck storm this foursome is going to unleash. That’s right. A storm of fuck. Hide your dads, kids.

Peace Treats Records – “Greetings from Orlando” PART FIN!

Sorry about the lapse in time for this last part, but the wait is well worth it. For our final installment we have Thee Wilt Chamberlain, The Pauses, and Luscious Lisa. Thanks to all the people who supported this run-through, it succeeded my expectations ten-fold, and I couldn’t have done it without all the help from the bands. Greetings from Orlando proves that this Central Florida city is worth much more than a corporate mouse. We have some of the best music in the country, and by the far the best music blog. Stay tuned in for more, because Orlando’s got much more to give, and I’ve got much more to write. Enjoy.

Thee Wilt Chamberlain – “Breakfast at Taco Bell”

Thee Wilt Chamberlain produce the only pure instrumental on Greetings from Orlando. “Breakfast at Taco Bell” is fitting for the tail end of the compilation: a smooth cool comedown, relaxing in the shade, and sipping on something refreshing. Thee Wilt Chamberlain are a trio you want to party with. These guys have been around for a while, and they’ve become a pretty strong presence in the Orlando music scene. They’ll be playing at the Greetings from Orlando release show this on Wednesday @ Uncle Lou’s! Get yo damn ass there.


Yearning for more? Thee Wilt Chamberlain provide all you need on their Bandcamp.

The Pauses – “The Beginnings of Things”

The Pauses‘ fresh sound breaths new life into Greetings from Orlando. On “The Beginnings of Things,” the band manipulates guitar riffs, synthesizer melodies, and other sonic marvels to create a flurry of sound. There’s a lot going on here, but this track doesn’t seem out of place on the compilation. The distorted beats fire with as much intensity as any guitar-driven song, and the veil of fuzz that cloaks the track cements The Pauses’ garage sensibilities. They’re playing on March 22 @ Will’s with Five Eight and The New Lows. Don’t miss out.


The Pauses keep things rollin’ on their Bandcamp! Satisfaction guaranteed.

Luscious Lisa – “Cocksuckers (Uh Huh)”

I’ll go ahead and say it: I’ve never been a big fan of white girl rap. But, Luscious Lisa seems like she would beat Eminem (yes I’m calling Marshall Mathers white girl rap) in a bar fight, and for that, I love her. Although the song isn’t my flavor, I think it makes a great closer to Greetings from Orlando. “Cocksuckers (Uh Huh)” blindsides you, and by the end you have more questions than answers. But, I think those were her intentions.
