… it reads on The Beacham’s marquee in the middle of Orange Ave in downtown Orlando. It’s 2018, and it feels strange. 

I’m holding whiskey, but all I can see is my 8th grade binder, the kind you can slip pictures into, and the front flap was stuffed full of pictures of Jesse McCartney. 

Are young girls&boys still obsessed with their current teen heartthrobs? Are their still newsstands selling the latest hot teen goss?? 

Maybe….but they don’t make them like Jesse McCartney anymore.

JESSE MCCARTNEY FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 2018 AT THE BEACHAM IN ORLANDO, FL!

RSVP TO  JESSE MCCARTNEY FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 2018 AT THE BEACHAM IN ORLANDO, FL ON FACEBOOK!

The multi-faceted artist juggled it all growing up in the spotlight. The actor, songwriter, and singer started out on All My Children and then crooned in the boy band Dream Street, and then came into his own fame through his solo career. 

McCartney recently announced his sixth studio album will be coming, and released the bop “Better With You.”

There will of course, always be a young Jesse in your mind. However, the artist is showing us just how much he’s grown since those old bleached, streaked hair days.  

Not that we won’t cherish those wonderful, wonderful years, (and scream “Beautiful Soul” at the top of our lungs until we pass out).

Nothing like getting drunk and getting manic on a motherf*cking Monday.*”

*Tuesday. 

Hobo Johnson & The Lovemakers come to The Social in Orlando on a Tuesday. But, yeah, nothing like getting motherf*cking manic on an early weeknight. It really weeds out the weekenders, and the drink deals are way better. 

Hobo Johnson & The Lovemakers are: 

Frank Lopes – Hobo 
Derek Lynch – Guitar/Piano 
Jordan Moore – Guitar/Piano/Drums/Vocals 
David Baez-Lopez – Bass 
Ben Lerch – Drums

But I’m guessing a lot of you already knew that, because the Orlando show is SOLD TF OUT. A lot of his shows on this tour are sold out. Lopes’ climb from sleeping in his ’94 Toyota Corolla to selling out rooms still feels super surreal to him.

The last show I did, there was like, a bunch of people waiting in line to take a picture with me,” Lopes said during a recent lunch at T&R Taste of Texas in Oak Park. “I never expected it to happen like this. From out of nowhere we released the (Oak Park) videos and in a month got 3,000 Facebook likes. Before that, nobody listened to (my) music.”

       — Hobo in an interview w/ Chris Macias in The Sacramento Bee.

Music is his solace. 

When I was in the Corolla, it made me feel that music was all I had,” he said. “I finally got over the fear of people thinking I’m weird. I was listening to my songs and it wasn’t good because I wasn’t being honest. I’m weird. That’s what I do.”

Lopes picked up traction after his Oak Park backyard videos, including a submission to NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest 2018.

I love the thought of being with you,”

 

Or maybe just the thought of not being SO ALONE.

He’s practically YouTube’s darling without the Disney background.

Comments under the NPR Tiny Desk Concert 2018 submission video praising the Sacramento sad boi rapper.

Both bands have a mutual respect for each other after all of these years in the industry together.

We’ve known Whitechapel since their humble beginnings and seen them rise to be the important force in heavy music that they are now. It’s exciting to team up with them for this co-headlining tour that’s sure to decimate venues everywhere this summer!”

– Black Dahlia Murder

We are excited to be doing a co-headliner with our friends and label mates The Black Dahlia Murder. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of ‘This Is Exile’, we will be playing it as a whole, and Black Dahlia will be playing their new record as a whole as well. It should be a great night of metal, including the opening acts as well.”

Joining BDM & Whitechapel this Summer are Fleshgod Apocalypse, Aversions Crown, and Shadows Of Intent. This is one STACKED metal lineup. Each band will raise the stakes until you the walls of Jannus Live start shaking. St. Pete will be alive with the stench of heavy ass riffs and probably weed.

Everyone I meet seems to have a particular memory attached to a Pixies song. A certain lyric, which transports them to a different time in their life where a former skin was shed. 

“Hey!
Been trying to meet you
Mmm…
Hey!
Must be a devil between us
Or whores in my head
Whores at the door
Whore in my bed
But hey!
Where
Have you
Been?
If you go, I will surely die.”

After a hiatus, successful comeback, and Kim Deal leaving the original lineup, we were due for some good news. 

What had happened, of course we got back together in 2004, which I couldn’t believe that, and we toured from 2004 to 2011. Seven years went by and after the seven-year mark, in 2011, we all realized, “Wait a minute. Hold on.” We’d been touring with our old music longer than we were initially a band back in the late ’80s and early ’90s. That was freaky to us…..There was nothing scary because we had already gotten through the scary part, so Head Carrier was a breeze and it was a lot easier to write than Indie Cindy. Much easier all the way around, especially since we had seven weeks of pre-production on it. It was like having a luxury to actually know these songs and learn them before going into the studio.”

– David Lovering, The Metro Times in October 2017

This tour they are paired with the ever nostalgic Weezer

We’re all big Weezer fans, so we’re really looking forward to this summer. We have a lot of respect for Weezer, they’re not afraid to take risks with their music.”

– Black Francis from the Pixies

And … this cover of Toto’s “Africa” is everything.

Tampa is the first stop of the tour, so you know they’re going to be fresh and ready to go all night. 

The Wombats will be joining the Pixies & Weezer all the way from Liverpool all Summer. 

This is going to be a legendary evening with three bands who have shaped the several last years of music. Our friends at Live Nation FL are helping us send you to see this incredible night!

Andrew McMahon is an important part of Shows I Go To’s history. Many of our writers and photographers have been inspired by his effervescent stage presence, beautiful words, and harrowing life story. 

It was late in the summer of 2002 when I first heard Leaving Through The Window, popping the CD into my modest Honda Civic sound system. It was my introduction to a unique piano rock-band by the moniker “Something Corporate” (often shortened to SoCo) with a 19 year-old Andrew McMahon as its helm. My mom had recently lost her battle with cancer and that little shiny disc had become a soundtrack for dealing with, and escaping from, my grief. Too many times I care to recount, I sat in my car in my early twenties, blasting it, crying.”

– Staff Writer, Dena Davis

andrew mcmahon live review

Andrew McMahon w/ Fences | The Beacham | November 19 2014

For the past decade, Andrew has been putting together a survival guide. He’s remained true to his fans and true to himself through song, constantly sharing his journey and life with the world. His army of loyal fans and consistency in releasing great music serve as the permanent ink printed on the pages of his survival guide. Ever since I first saw Andrew McMahon’s sticker covered piano in the rain at Warped Tour ‘02 I was hooked. From his days in Something Corporate to his emotional seesaw in Jack’s Mannequin, Andrew has been on a hell of a journey to say the least. Most recently, Andrew has announced he’ll be writing and performing music under the name Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. I feel it’s safe to say Andrew will be well prepared for his new journey.”

Will’s Pub is stepping it up (even more) this year. The Mills institution has long stood its ground in competition around town, and in fact, it’s kind of hard to go anywhere else now. 

Mayhem on Mills had Orlandoans buzzing when wrestlers came to blows between fast moving traffic on a Sunday afternoon.

Well, Will’s has done it again…but a bit more tame (mayhem of a different kind,) of an event this time around. 


“Terribly Wrong” Is the first installment of the Blacksuede Sonics series of audio and visual nights showcasing electronic music that goes beyond the cliches and mainstream trends of trap, dubstep and EDM.”

 

RSVP TO “TERRIBLY WRONG” @ WILL’S PUB IN ORLANDO, FL HERE!

Too often electronic music is shoved into a filofax with EDM, trap, dubstep and it’s “all encompassing” brand ambassador eye sore of an overlord, the Electric Daisy Carnival

I’ve never worn a neon tutu while salivating on a cherry limeade ring pop and grinding my teeth under a clusterfuck of lights, but I can’t deny it’s luring temptation sometimes, (and it’s rampant social media presence over the past ten years). My taste buds lean more towards the black licorice which gathers between my molars and comes with a warning. 

“Terribly Wrong” will represent the Dark Underground Bass, Industrial Funk, IDM, Drum and Bass, Downtempo/Lofi Hip Hop, Breakcore and Ambient side of electronic music. This is the music gunked to the roof of your mouth; hard to remove, hard to forget. 

The lineup is anchored by DJ Kurt Rambus aka DJ Nigel John

 

DJ Nigel John was voted Reader’s Choice Best DJ for the Best of Orlando 2016. But, even more so than accolades (and trust me, he has them; opening for Blackalicious, Latryx, Questlove, among others,) is a deep rooted sense of self. His project as Kurt Rambus is a vinyl flipping twisted delight. Twisted because, you’re often not sure if the buildup will ever break.

How long can you stand it? 

 

The Orlando DJ has been testing spines since ’97. 💀 

Rambus will be joined by Electronic musician, Pressurewave and DJ OLDGOD of REDD.PNDA (DJ CUB,) who are no strangers themselves to rattling the walls of every venue they enter. 

🚨🚨This is a $5 FRIDAY at Will’s🚨🚨

An obvious no brainer decision, given the quality of electronic acts on tap. 🙌🏼

I’ve used a lot of taste metaphors/analogies here, and honestly, that’s because this evening is going to slide down your gullet so unbelievably snug n’ smooth, you’re going to be like,

I think I was wearing a scarf. Well, twirling it. Maneuvering between the saxophonist who ran the room (garage turned Skatetown U.S.A. remake,) and the other movers on the carpet, I tilted my head and gave in. 

Gave in to the MF-in funk. 

Raspberry Pie is Orlando’s #1 dance band. 

Who’s no. 2??

It doesn’t funkin’ matter!!”

But, do they do a better cover of “September” than Taylor Swift???

OF COURSE THEY DO. 

When we started playing “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire, people got up and started dancing…..As long as we kept playing, they kept dancing, with no signs of stopping. Finally, after nearly 15 minutes of solos, choruses, break downs, build ups, and the removal of shirts from fear of sweating to death, we brought the song to a blistering close, and swore to bring that experience to as many people as possible. Raspberry Pie shows are at their best when everyone in the crowd loses their inhibitions, and goes nuts. And we like to go nuts with them.”

Doug Horne (Vocals/guitar,) Ryan Goodwin (piano/vocals,) Nick L’Heureux – (Alto Saxophone,) Zac Howard – (Bass guitar,) and Clyde (robot drummer) began dosing the Orlando scene with funk in 2015, and have created some tasty, tasty licks along the way. 

Their 2016 album People, Places, and Things spurred on the dance vibes. 

Gym Song by Raspberry Pie

Is this THE workout jam of 2018?

Posted by Raspberry Pie on Friday, January 19, 2018

The boys are back and nerdier than ever with their latest single, “Nerdy Talk.” 

“‘People, Places, and Things’ was a fun record to make, but in a lot of ways, it was really a transitional album. The majority of the songs were recorded solely by me, as I hadn’t met any of the other guys yet. It was only toward the end of the recording process that Ryan and I got together, and he tracked for “Space Cowboy” and “Loveseat,” which, incidentally, are probably the two strongest tracks on the album.

Doug Horne helms the group with his patented moves on the stage and gives thoughtful insight into the groups creative process.  

Hype As Funk is definitely more of a group effort, and an album with a bit more direction to it. “Nerdy Talk” is probably the best example of that group mentality, as I wrote it specifically with each band members’ best abilities in mind. From Zac’s slapping, to Ryan’s rhythmic ideas on the keys, to Nick’s ability to lay down a big sexy hook on saxophone, everyone shines their brightest, especially when we play it live. It’s sort of the musical equivalent of all the Zords coming together to make a giant megazord.”

If you don’t think nerds are sexy or funky, Raspberry Pie is here to change your mind.
 

Raspberry Pie PREMIERE – “Nerdy Talk”

 


 
Not picky, no it doesn’t matter
Just who you are
As long as you like Captain Kirk not
Jean Luc Picard
We’ll go to Barnes and Noble and we’ll
Sit on the floor
And flip through all the manga 
Until they close the store.
 
Sax weaves throughout the song and pulls your hips upward, as you gravitate toward the groove
 

I need a cute companion just like every Doctor Who
To chat with ’bout my comics, Star Wars, anime, and soon
I’ll find that special someone that can whisper in my ear
Those geeky little nothings that I always wanna hear
I want some.

We make it millenial. All the songs on the EP, in one way or another, hit on touchstones of a culture that would largely be perceived as being “millenial.” Everything from nerdy fandoms, to #gymsongs, to the true implications of the phrase “LOL,” are presented through funky dance grooves, and a humorous attitude. And, of course, nothing could be more millenial than titling the album in a variation on “Hype AF.

Are we glorifying millenials culture, or are we mocking it? …….Yes.”

-Doug Horne
 

Orlando’s newest premier space Blackstar will play host to the EP Release show on Saturday, June 23. The aptly titled Hype As Funk, will get birthed right on that dancefloor. With Blackstar’s supreme light show on the walls, it’s the ideal space to disco all night. 

Accompanying the boys is Marc with a C and EyeQ

I caught Marc with a C at The Geek Easy back in 2016 and he was both raw and coy. A modern memory. 

EyeQ boasts a knowledge of animation and video games, and his music would agree, he sound cannot be pinned down to one genre. The artist bridges nerdcore, hip hop, and a love of jazz together in an amalgamation of wildly different worlds colliding. 

EyeQ – Sweet love at Pax South

Happy Belated Birthday to the one and only Anita Baker <3 I had some much fun doing this rendition of Sweet love with the Super Soul Bros. Robbie Benson and ChocoBros Emmanuel Kwame Aouad and Leron Gray The NPC Collective

It’s 5:00 pm on a Monday, only two and a half hours before the Justin Timberlake “Man of the Woods Tour” at Amway Center begins.

I planned a quiet night at home with my family until I looked at my phone and saw a text that I had been approved last minute to cover the show! I immediately went into panic mode trying to figure out if I could make it work. I had less than three hours to find a babysitter, get ready, and make the drive from Haines City to Downtown Orlando. It wasn’t going to be easy, but it would all be worth it once Justin Timberlake hit the stage.

Justin Timberlake Orlando 2018

Justin Timberlake | Amway Center, Orlando, FL | May 14th, 2018

My wife and I arrive at Amway Center in just enough time to get to our seats, with a few minutes to spare. It’s hard to believe just a few hours ago I was cleaning up dishes in my kitchen and now I am about to see one of the most talented artists of our time.

The stage was unlike anything I had ever seen. Instead of the traditional stage in the front of the arena, this stage stretched all the way from the floor to the back of the arena, complete with trees spread throughout, to fit the Man of the Woods theme. He made full use of this setup to play to the entire room from front to back insuring that there wasn’t a bad seat in the house.

Justin Timberlake Orlando 2018

JT gets some air and shows Orlando his best dance moves.

Justin Timberlake rocked our bodies by giving us a taste of the best songs from his entire catalog. This may have been the “Man of the Woods Tour,” but he made sure to appeal to the fans from every point of his career. From the heavily pop influenced Justified, to the more bare bones Man of the Woods, Justin Timberlake proves he is also a man of many talents showcasing his wide musical styling. He opened with “Filthy,” the first track off MOTW which quickly brought everyone to their feet. Amway Center soon became a two hour long dance party with Justin Timberlake as our host. This was not a bad way to spend a Monday night. 

After hitting us with a barrage of hits and fan favorites the likes of “Love Stoned,” “Sexy Back,” and “Suit and Tie,”  JT brought a stripped version of his band to the middle of the arena. He reminisced about his early days in Orlando working in The Mickey Mouse Club and *NSYNC. He then passed out shots to his band and led us all in a toast in honor of Orlando, before burning through a jamming rendition of “Drink You Away.”

He slowed things down a bit as he gathered around a campfire, which was surrounded by trees towards the back of the arena. Justin Timberlake played the very fitting “Flannel” from Man of the Woods before tossing the mic around to a few of his bandmates to do covers of Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, John Denver, and Lauryn Hill. 

Whether you were on the floor, or all the way at the top of the Amway Arena, no one could walk away from this show disappointed.”

The full band soon returned to the stage to finish out the night with a final set of hits. From “Rock Your Body” to the #metoo anthem “Say Something,” no song went overlooked. Although there was no formal encore, I could tell the end was near as Justin Timberlake pulled out one of his biggest new hits “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

JT and his crew danced their way across the arena, from front to back while shaking hands along the way. Whether you were on the floor, or all the way at the top of the arena, no one could walk away from this show disappointed.

October 17th, 2003 was not only the first time I had ever seen Shania Twain live in concert; it was the first concert I had ever seen. She had just begun her “Up! Tour.” I remember when my parents took me to the concert, we were so far back in the MCI Center (now known as the Capital One Arena) my dad actually brought me binoculars, so I could see what was happening on stage. The memories I had from 15 years ago are a bit fuzzy, but I’ll never forget the excitement from that performance; the amazement of hearing Shania sing as well as she does on each album she releases.

That’s why when the renowned Queen of Country Pop announced her final tour back in 2015, the only words that could describe her fan’s reaction is a mixture of sadness and gratitude — sadness that one of country music’s biggest stars would be leaving the road behind, but grateful she went all out each and every night she performed for 52 nights, along with completing a residency in Las Vegas. You can imagine how hearing Shania Twain was returning with her first new studio album, Now, seemed like a dream. But as Tampa learned, it wasn’t a dream at all.

Shania Twain_Review_Tampa_1

My ticket from Shania’s 2003 Up! Tour

When I first walked into Amalie Arena, the heat of the room’s temperature hit me instantly. It feels borderline claustrophobic but more like a warm embrace. Twain’s drummer Elijah Wood makes her way to a small stage in the middle of the floor and began to bang out the stomp-stomp-clap intro to Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” the instrumental of to “Any Man of Mine” slowly fading in to accompany her hard-hitting rhythm. As the Amalie Arena became dimly lit, a spotlight shined on the crowd. Shania Twain appeared seemingly out of nowhere and made her way through Section 114 towards the stage, shaking the hands of those in her path and jolting near 14,000 fans to their feet to whip out their cell phones. 

Dressed in a dazzles with neon and cheetah print swirling on screen behind her and backup singers accompanying her, Twain kick-started the show with the pop side of her catalog early. Her opening song “Life’s About to Get Good” is a perfect way to describe the evening as a whole, followed by the merry “Come On Over.” Once she ascended to the top of her shape-shifting stage, Twain was thrust up to the sky as she sang “Up!” to lift everyone’s mood. 

“Up up up there’s nowhere but up from here!”

By the middle of the set, a different Twain comes out. The notified pop star we’d seen up to this point was replaced with the old country-fied Shania most people recognize. The fiddle-fueled “Any Man Of Mine” positively filled the arena, with Twain and her back up dancers kicking out a little shimmy-shake at the end. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” embraced Twain’s campier side.

One of the major highlights of the evening is when Twain is hoisted up into a harness, floating across the arena on a chariot resembling a guitar case. As she hovered over the main floor strummed an acoustic guitar, she asked for all members of the audience to take out there phones and turn on the camera lights “so [she] could see all [our] wonderful faces.” As she sang “You’re Still The One” the arena echoed in unison, everyone’s voices matching up to the beauty and energy in Twain’s own.

From there, the momentum slows a bit as Twain made her way once again through the crowds to the main stage, gathering a party of kids and superfans from the crowd to join her up on stage for interviews and selfies. It’s hard not to be jealous of these lucky individuals. This moment is a bit of a slow breather, but it did show, in spite of Twain’s superstardom, she’s remained humble throughout the years. 

She brings out her opening act, Swiss singer Bastian Baker for a rocked-up “Party of Two” and the dub-doused “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed.” During the former, Baker proved he isn’t the next Mark McGrath or the next Billy Currington — he doesn’t need to be. Baker’s voice has the youth and energy reminiscent of other incredible country artists, such as Hunter Hayes or Kip Moore, yet has the charisma and stage presence that of which is similar to Shawn Mendes. The two of them together got the crowd ripe and ready for the rock-filled “Rock This Country” and the floor tom heavy “If You’re Not In It For Love (I’m Out of Here)!”

Shania Twain_Review_Tampa_4

When the show began, Twain came out of nowhere. By the end, she had fans hooting and covered in streamers and confetti. Whether it’s your first time seeing her or your 50th, you’re guaranteed a performance that will get you up and dancing along, and might have you learning a song or two you might’ve never heard before. And man, while I may not feel like a woman, I did feel like I was once again 11 years old again enjoying my first concert. 

Shania Twain_Review_Tampa_5

2003 and 2018 me both agree – Shania is amazing live.

RSVP TO THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS IN TAMPA HERE!

Last year, rock stars Thirty Seconds To Mars put on an amazing show during their 15-day tour with the unimaginably talented Muse. 

The band, led by frontman Jared Leto, deemed 15 days to be too short, which, is why this summer, Mars will be back and better than ever with a month long headline tour. Their new album is aptly titled, AMERICA.

The album’s first two singles – revolution sparkling energy of “Walk On Water” and the late night romance starting rhythm of “Dangerous Night” – show that while the band has greatly evolved their sound in the last 5 years, the energy that they’ve had since the days of their self-titled is still there. They aren’t running out of creativity anytime soon.”

After completing the European leg of their Summer tour, The US leg of “The Monolith Tour” will kick off in Toronto on June 6th and will wrap up on July 22nd in Phoenix. Mars will be supported by five incredible acts, which include Walk The Moon, Misterwives, and Joywave. A full list of tour dates can be found below!

If you’ve never been to the Annual Hurricane Party, allow the founder of this beautiful platform, Mitchel Foster, to give you an inside glimpse.

The 8th Annual Hurricane Party was a badass, drunken all-day/night music party in Sanford, Florida. There were four stages shared by the extensive 52 bands lineup. Food was readily available but we’ll get to that in a minute. Drinks, on the other hand, were flowing heavier than a busted NYC fire hydrant in the streets of Harlem in the summer. In other words, if you were at the 8th Annual Hurricane Party and you were sober, you were doing it wrong.”

Oh, and there’s more….

I had a pepperoni pizza, which was personal size (for me,) and consisted of 8 small slices and was about the circumference size of a Totino’s party pizza. Our photographer, Lindsay had the greek pizza with spinach and feta, which I also got to experience thanks to the suicidal bug that experienced death by cheese into one of her slices. Her grossed-outness worked to my advantage as the extra protein on that slice didn’t bother me at all. That shit was delicious, too!”

Mitch details a seemingly intimate(?) moment with a phenomenal food truck, and now I’m fucking hungry, too.

The Hurricane Party is about wild music, mouth-watering eats, and a carefree attitude, because this party is rocking on RAIN OR SHINE
