Rare are the events which come around and move something in you. And, I mean, truly motivate you to create. INSPIRE is that event.

With such an eclectic lineup of performers, in every sense of the word, there will be ample moments in the evening for you to draw inspiration from. Meet the event’s producer/curator & captivating lineup of artists below! 

Kristin Porteous — Event Producer/Curator

INSPIRE Orlando 2018

KP created INSPIRE based on her passion for the arts and entertainment world. She’s been in the industry for 20 years; starting with her first role as a back up dancer in an international music video at 13, to being awarded The Venue’s Artist of the Year just last Fall 2017 at 33.

She’s worked across the US spending time in Las Vegas, where she performed in shows, nightclubs, and corporate events. KP was a featured dancer in Sky-King Entertainments production of Vegas Showgirl! and performed at special events for the Bellagio and SLS Hotels.

This passionate woman’s hard work and focus on achieving her goals led her to working with world class production companies performing in shows for brands like Reebok, Canon, Paul Mitchell, and Harley Davidson, to name a few. KP has appeared in National Commercials for ABC’s Monday Night Football and Party City. She has been featured in films including Universal Pictures’ Sydney White and the PBS Special HairWorld: The Pursuit of Happiness, filmed in Moscow, Russia.

Her career in theme parks opened a world of opportunity she didn’t know was possible. Over the last 7 years, Kristin has performed in many shows and special events at Universal Orlando. Including Bill and Teds Excellent Halloween Adventure, Beetlejuice, and Starlettes. You can also find her dancing with the empowered Pearls at the Edison at Disney Springs choreographed by Lindsey Galvin Todd w/ Metropolis Productions. 

While she continues to express her love of dance and performing, KP hopes to make an impact with events like INSPIRE and pursue her passion behind the scenes in the entertainment industry as a Producer and director for video and live events. But first and foremost, she has a dream to give back to the local Orlando arts community which has helped shape not only her career, but who she is as a human.

Ask anyone if they’ve heard of Evanescence, and chances are you’ll get a resounding “YES.”

The rock band returned to the music scene after a short hiatus back in 2015, selling out every show date during their 2016 U.S. leg, as well as headlining a few festivals. They’ve performed all the hits fans have gone crazy for including, “Call Me When You’re Sober,” Everybody’s Fool,” the fan-favorite “Disappear,” and of course … “Bring Me To Life.” The latter was performed by the band’s front woman Amy Lee and 12 Stone’s Paul McCoy at Orlando’s Kink Rock Festival, a reunion which fans had waiting years to see with their own eyes.

Last fall, the band recently released their first album in six years, Synthesis. The album is a stripped down version of songs of their first three albums, performed by an orchestra and would features elements of electronica and the “synthetic world of beats and sound.” Now the band plans to tour with a full 28-piece orchestra, and with world renowned violinist, Lindsey Stirlingbringing her energetic performance on stage with the band! Can this get any better?! 😎

This show is significant for many reasons. 

American Football has always played it a little coy when it comes to promoting themselves. A slight tease here and there; a website which held a mysterious countdown in 2014. (When the clock ran out, two show announcements went live.) For a band who only has two LP’s and one EP over the course of 20 years, they’ve amassed a large following. A very well-earned following. 

AF has influenced many bands throughout the two decades they’ve been around.

Local Orlando sweethearts You Blew It! came out with this statement on their Facebook this past April:

“Three more.”

Last year we made the decision to put the band on hold while we focused on aspects of our personal lives. While we recognized that we would inevitably play shows again, we were unaware it would be this soon. Considering the importance American Football played in the formation of, and influence on our band, we knew passing on the opportunity to play with them would forever rest in the back of our minds. Until we rest again, we’re thankful to have another opportunity to see you all once more.”

American Football has been on a bit of a break after their 2016 self-titled (LP2) record. However, they released a few Florida dates for this summer! What’s even more special about these Florida shows is the support of You Blew It!

The now 14 year old, is playing sold out arenas with Imagine Dragons! Not only is Vanderwaal an incredible performer but, she has been writing her own songs since she was three. 

This will be a night to remember under the Tampa stars, it’s SOLD OUT, and we want YOU to WIN TIX!!!

My friends, Jordan Shroyer (TEEN AGERS), Ray Roa (Creative Loafing), and I are sharing a bucket of PDQ (chicken tenders + fries). The Smashing Pumpkins with Jimmy Chamberlain and James Iha, are up next! Tonight (tonight) is a delicious dream coming true.

I’m full of Canada thanks to the 24 oz. Molson and Metric. This Molson Canadian premium lager might be the best beer I’ve had all year. It’s surprisingly my first time enjoying this, and my first time at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL. “Of course they have Canadian beer, this is a hockey arena!” Jordan spills with a smile.

Emily Hanes Metric Live Review 2018

Emily Haines is electric. “This is really a promo tour for Metric,” Ray suggests. Metric opening for The Smashing Pumpkins is just a kind bonus. I agree with Ray, it’s very important for a band like Metric to appeal to a larger audience, like SPs. Being a long time Metric fan, it’s strange to think there are still many, many people who have no fucking clue who Metric is. They sold out The Ritz in 2012 (and most of their club tour). We’re all the lucky ones tonight, including Emily Haines, who shares her excitement and gratitude for being on the road with “such legends” before closing their 9-song set with “Help I’m Alive.”

“This is a song about being really afraid … I tremble…”

James Iha didn’t even have to learn any new songs (not like he would, lol). This entire tour is focused on The Smashing Pumpkins first five albums (Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, Machina/Machina II, in order) in which Iha appeared (from ‘91-’00).

The production level is elevated in the right ways, literally and figuratively. Ray tells me the art direction was created in Tampa. The show begins very dramatically and really, the whole thing was really fucking dramatic, but in the right ways …

Billy Corgan (or William Patrick Corgan Jr.) appears between two colossal video screens to open with “Disarm,” paired with him as “a little boy” behind him. He’s wearing his signature kilt and black jacket with a big white “0” on the back.

He has us now, all of us.

Billy Corgan 2018 Smashing Pumpkins

The screens are moving, the drum riser rolls out, it’s surreal, it’s happening, and our hands are above our heads.

Five songs in, he has a wardrobe change and climbs the stairs on stage to pay tribute to his friend, David Bowie, with “Space Oddity.” Jimmy Chamberlin delivers the best drum cover I’ve ever felt. His fills melt me. It’s rare to see someone better, and impossible to see someone more inspirational to me.

Billy Corgan 2018 David Bowie

They glide from “Zero” to two Machina songs to “Thirty-Three” from Mellon Collie.  

It’s wonderfully strange when you hear a song a decade later and it still motivates you uniquely. I find myself putting things off and getting too “busy” too often. I often shift tasks to the next day but really … “Tomorrow’s just an excuse away.”

Fucking Mark McGrath?! Hahahaha! Really? They hired Mark McGrath to perform some Vauderville-style interludes and brighten the mood throughout the set. This set continues to increase in impressiveness.

They sandwich “Tonight, Tonight” between two tasteful classics, “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac and “Stairway To Heaven” by MF-in Led Zeppelin!

This is three hours of Corgan at his best. Everything career-defining is here — “1979,” “Cherub Rock,” “Today,” “Mayonaise,” and of course, “Bullet With Butterfly Wings.”

Smashing Pumpkins!“Bullet With Butterfly Wings” 💀

Posted by Shows I Go To on Wednesday, July 25, 2018

They encore with their first new song Corgan, Iha, and Chamberlin have performed on together since 2000, “Solara,” produced by Rick Rubin, and then play the Dumbo song to end the evening (nice choice).

The Smashing Pumpkins 2018

It feels like The Smashing Pumpkins are doing this for the fans again. “There is no one like them,” Ray humbly boasts on the way to the bar after the show. Tonight (tonight) is a night I’ll never forget.

Most importantly, they made us feel something from the first fucking second.

And who knows, maybe we’ll see a tour with D’arcy in the future. 😎

Umphrey’s McGee just rocked out Red Rocks on July 4th weekend. After a short rest, the boys get back to it with a fresh batch of 2018 Summer Tour dates. After the tour opener at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa on August 9, and a return to one of their homes away from home at White River State Park in Indianapolis, the boys will be heading southbound this August with stops in Orlando, Miami Beach, St. Augustine, and Knoxville. Following rockin’ at Lockn’, they hit The Iroquois Amphitheater in Louisville, Kentucky on August 25.

I am so very excited that they are welcoming special guests Spafford to help kick off the run for five summer shows, including the three Florida dates! The Nth Power featuring The Spirit Horns (Jen Hartswick and James Casey of Trey Anastasio Band) will finish up the tour in New Orleans, at their debut at ACL Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, and Dallas.

Tickets are on sale now through Umphrey’s Ticketing. Hit the road for some rock & roll with Umphrey’s McGee this summer.

— Garrett East on Warped Tour 2015

It’s hard to think of a summer which wasn’t marked with a visit to a Warped Tour date, and it’s emotional to imagine moving forward without one. So, let’s take one last bow and get punk AF together on Van’s Warped Tour: Final Full Cross Country Tour

This isn’t a story that helps you. There is no happy ending. You don’t figure out anything. You don’t become smarter. You just either survive, or you die. No one likes those stories. No one likes to know there is no silver lining. No one really likes what’s real. It’s a lot easier to lie to yourself …”

The Making of the 27th Club

Behind the scenes of the upcoming Film, Album, and Documentary!

Posted by 27th Club on Friday, July 20, 2018


Eric Polite is asking you to kill a version of yourself. 

Mr. Polite is inviting you to join the club. 

The 27th Club Premiere

“The 27th Club is an Experimental Art Project creating a Short Film, Ep, and Documentary in 5 days.”

The 27th Club is the 24 year old’s passion project, born out of more than just the lore of the fated number and all its famous members, (Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, & more). More than 15 people came together to crew this film and album, which drops the same day as the film premiere. 

My birthday is on the 27th. 27 has always marked memorable points in my life. When I would move, get a new job, when someone close to me died. It was always that number.”

Eric, the writer/actor/artist of the film/album, believes not everyone gets to choose everything that happens to them in life, but trusts in the process of change and letting go. 

You can’t keep being that person. You have to let go of what is holding you back.

Polite aka Pacos Eric (the rapper’s onstage name,) met the music producer/executive producer on the album, Greg Smith, in high school when they played basketball together. Greg was making beats and eventually they collaborated on music together.


 

Then came the wildcard, Chris Miglioranzi. 

The 27th Club Premiere

Chris | Executive producer on The 27th Club

A drunk guy tried to fight us in Winter Park. A person sang for us in a Krispy Kreme in Daytona. There were 12 people in my little ass apartment, sleeping on the floor. All of us crammed into a hotel room eating free breakfast. Some nights we only had two hours of sleep. Imagine having to manage 12 people when you haven’t had any sleep yourself,” Chris laughs.

When there are several creatives involved, it takes a while to adjust to each other’s process.

The 27th Club Premiere

“I make things hard. I do not sleep. I would be texting them ideas at 3am. I want to make the most of time.” – Eric Polite | Writer/Actor/Artist on The 27th Club

Luckily, With grit & hard work, the three brought together their own skills and learned new ones along the way to make a product they could proudly present to the world. 

My goal was to make something within a certain time frame. I wanted to challenge myself to create something and be better at something new,” Chris states. 

The movie was filmed all over Florida, touching down in Orlando, St. Augustine, Jacksonville, and Daytona. Eric sees The 27th Club as experimental art, a collaboration. The guys recruited their main actress, Tory Drummond from Instagram (@tory.dru) about two weeks before shooting started. 

The 27th Club Premiere

“She was down for the ride,” Chris says. “She trusted our vision and we’re so grateful.” – Tory Drummond pictured above.

One rule was clear from the beginning, use who you know.

Of course, you could get someone with 500K followers or go for the big get, but there’s such a lack of horizontal networking in this industry, and we wanted to change that,

Greg conveys ardently during our phone interview.

20 hour days left them even more humble than the crew began. 

When we went to St. Augustine, we were shooting a promo with Iana (artist, producer) and Daniel (documentary producer). She wasn’t supposed to come, but was single-handledly the greatest secret weapon. Painter, photographer, set designer, director, etc. We were shooting a bit and she brought her ukulele and Daniel brought his violin. They were supposed to be buskers for the scene and they were so good that when we were filming people thought they were street performers and they were making like $7 every minute.”

The 27th Club Premiere

“They ended up playing with these people on the street (as pictured) and the dog almost bit some guys hand off.” Chris | Executive Producer on The 27th Club

The film will premiere Friday, July 27th at Ocean Walk Paragon Theatres in Daytona at 7pm. The theatre itself will be showcased among all the incredible shots in the film.

I wanted this to be about self-reflection and honesty. Movies always project everything as perfect; glorifying our positive traits. All humans make mistakes. The album especially highlights the flaws and shows the truly human side of music,”

Eric spills candidly.

The 27th Club Premiere

Pacos Eric was inspired by Childish Gambino’s album ‘Because Of The Internet’ and his short, “Clapping for all the wrong reasons.” He loved the lack of a particular plot and the non-chronological order of events.

Film is one of those mediums which was elitist for the longest time. The 27th Club shatters the ceiling on this out-of-date notion, and illustrates the importance of using your local resources, learning a new skill, and building a team.”

This is the groundwork of something monumental. Support your community creatives, and join the club.

Sometimes we like to have fun at the 27th Club. A couple of the members had fun making this on the fly 😉

Umphrey’s McGee, now a staple at RRX on Fourth of July weekend, lead an annual pilgrimage of rock fans to one of the best music venues in America.”

 

Pinch me, I’m dreaming.

I can’t believe that I get to go see my favorite band in Denver, the land of milk of honey.

I now have so many friends in Denver that I can’t help but have a great time with the constant hugs and smiles I get daily. That, and three nights of the best prog-rock jam band in the land, Umphrey’s McGee, at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater.

This is my second time at Red Rocks and my second 3-night run of Umphrey’s McGee in Denver in the last six months… I was also at the Fillmore in downtown Denver for the New Years Eve shows. Anyways, no matter how many times you’ve been to Red Rocks or seen Umphrey’s, it just never gets old. I absolutely love this place. If you haven’t been to Red Rocks, let me show you around. High up in the mountains you have a stellar view of Denver and the plains of Colorado. On your left and right are huge red rocks, angled and majestic. Above you are the stars and moon… a few fast moving clouds say hello on their way by. Below the city is the stage: a huge area for the band to perform, framed by more 20-feet tall rust colored stones. The spaces in between are filled with happy faces and fans ready to dance their butts off.

NIGHT ONE

Dance parties at these hallowed grounds aren’t purchased, their earned. With each step taken in the 250-foot climb from the parking lots to the viewing area. I’m out of breath just thinking about it. It seriously takes us 25 minutes to get from the car up to security, and I think we stopped as a group to rest at least once. I scooped a shirt at the merch booth after security, arguably the best looking batch of Umph schwag I’ve seen in a while.  The art is fantastic and I urge you to check it out on their website, I feel like we may have turned a corner. So, we enter the venue and Lotus already has the crowd groovin’. I really can’t catch which song we are in, there is so much going on, from traversing the gigantic steps to meeting friends and passing out hugs and high fives. All I can say about Lotus is that they did their job. The party is poppin’ by the time they are through throwing down their unique brand of funk.

Umphrey’s took the stage next. The moment I’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. “40’s Theme” is the opener and guitarists Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger lead a fast paced charge into the warm summer night. The mood is incredible as the band turns to “Intentions Clear.” UM’s lighting director, Jefferson Waful, takes the pace change as a chance to show off just how many lights he has at his command. I just saw them at the New Years Eve shows and instead of six of these new high intensity super bright lights, he now has ten to twelve of them. These lights have become a staple of the show and taken the place of the light catching pillars that seemed to imitate the stained glass windows at the Tabernacle in Atlanta.  Gone are the pillars, and I am so pleased with what has become of this light show. The set up for Red Rocks has every fan feeling like they are right up on the rail. I love Waful’s use of the stage floor as a canvas rather than only working with the rocks behind the band.

“Proverbial” is awesome. Led by Joel Cummins on keys, he is constantly interrupted by Cinninger on guitar who seems to always want to take things up a notch. “Nothing to Fancy” and “Dark Brush” are also huge in this first set. The second set starts fast with Pink Floyd covers of “In the Flesh” and “Another Brick in the Wall” which have a “Rappers Delight” jam in the middle. Holy Crap! This goes straight in to “Stinkos Ascension” that has Bayliss giving us a tapping plus wa-wa sound on the guitar and bassist Ryan Stasik entertaining the crowd with huge windmills. This song is an elevator to the top and every time I think we can’t go any higher, the doors close and this group of “Stinkos” ascend even more! “Wife Soup” is up next and this slow methodical jam has the whole crowd singing like a choir, with their hands raised high and goosebumps freckling their arms and legs. The end of the set features a surfer sounding jam in the middle of “Mulches Odyssey” and a dark ending to the new track “Triangle Tear.” We receive a very well done “Divisions” for encore and are sent out into the night.

NIGHT TWO

Umphrey’s always insists that we “Rage, Rest, and Repeat”… well, we have raged, and rested… and now, the repeat! Only this time we get to experience the lap of luxury, paying a small fee to ride in a party bus with my friends up into the mountains. The bus is rockin’ and rollin’ as we get hype for night two at Red Rocks Amphitheater. This time Papadosio is the opener and we get dropped off at the top! The view is so spectacular. We descend to our spot and are joined by so many cool people, including buddies I know from Florida as well as friends from Colorado and even others we met at the show last night! Umphrey’s shows are a great time to meet people! We all have “Similar Skin” and wouldn’t you know it, Umphrey’s opens the night with the title song of their 10th studio release. The jam is just nuts and it has an amazing build up to come back to the end of the song. We just got here and I think I need to go change my shorts.

Up next, Waful flexes his lighting powers in “Hurt Bird Bath,” painting a stage beautifully with complimentary colors, giving the band a stellar setting from which to play. The highlight of the set is easily the “Phil’s Farm” with impromptu lyrics on a sexy dance session in the middle. This song is a cross breed of heavy metal and country pickin’. The battle between the two in the song is always good, but the jam in the middle approaches jazzy yacht rock as lead singer Brendan Bayliss serenades the crowd with his falsetto lyrics promising to “make you scream.” I’m suddenly surrounded by love birds and doves cooing back to the stage, swooning and swaying, they whistle and cheer with approval for this rare and sexy moment. The boys of South Bend weren’t finished impressing us just yet and also let loose a “Come Closer” mashup of the Beatles “Come Together” and Nine Inch Nails “Closer” to end the set. I’m awestruck as a grown woman in the crowd next to me turned into a little girl, screaming with joy for this favorite: “I wanted to be here for ‘Divisions’ last night, but this is way better,” she says.

Set two features a bunch of cool moments. First, I love when they play “Does it Matter,” it has synchronized guitar playing that is unreal. Also, they debuted “Australian Lullaby” from their Reel to Real DVD inside of the devilish “Plunger.” Fan favorite “Higgins” is on point as usual and the band has been working up a really good vibe when out of no where a guy pukes behind me. I grimace as I can feel tiny flecks hit the backs of my ankles. Nope! No! I’m out! I escape the row and down the steps, four at a time, I race away from the scene, never looking back. I take a moment in the bathroom to check out the damage: minimal. A quick wipe down and a water refill and I’m back to enjoying the show. Just then, UM starts playing their patriotic rendition of George Michael’s “Freedom.”  Red, white and blue lights surround us and all is right in the world. I stand with my arms out wide, catching the breeze on the side of a mountain! “1348” is the encore and the band is on fire. Hot rock-n-roll erupts from the stage as Cinninger’s playing leads them from one section of the song to the next, like hot lava pouring down the mountain. The music ends and all that is left is smoke and melted faces in the amphitheater. I can’t believe that even after so many shows (44) they continue to impress me.

NIGHT THREE

It’s the final evening of what has already been a splendid run.  I’m ready to get back to Red Rocks and soak in all the sights and sounds one last time. The Record Company is up first. Their rock and blues sound is great! The crowd is up and moving and enjoying the music as the band shouts out to their birthday bassist, Alex Stiff. Slide guitarist and harmonica player Chris Vos was impressive with playing and singing. They play a track off their new album All Of This Life as well as a 30-year anniversary salute to the Grateful Dead with “Easy Wind.”  These guys kind of remind me of the Black Crowes!

On to Umphrey’s! They start with “Dump City,” a song that feel like its full of trap doors. Ending over and over again, this song is a favorite of mine because of its intricacy. “Women, Wine, Song” is led by Joel on keys next, but Cinninger won’t relent and continues to escalate the situation no matter where they are in the song. Waful sets a beautiful scene during new song, “Seasons.” Umphrey’s raises everyone from the depths of the sea with “Ocean Billy.” People leave their hands up in the air long after the music stops and the house lights come back.

The second set is the big finish for the weekend. No fireworks in the sky, but certainly plenty on the stage. They start with the heavy “Hindsight” and quirky “Wappy Sprayberry.” After moving into “Ringo” and calling us a bunch of “greasy animals” they cover a little bit of “Sweet Emotion” inside of “Utopian Fir.” The next song we see Andy Farag on percussion highlighted at the end of its jam. “You have yet to witness our best” is my favorite line from this signature song, “Slacker.” I’m starting to believe them. My nipples are so hard I can feel my shirt ripping at this point. Jennifer Hartswick joins the band on stage to sing and play trumpet for Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Bliss. Pure and total happiness.  “I fuckin’ need you tonight!!” No, she didn’t! Then, the show and 3-night run comes to an end with an amazing “All In Time” encore that features a Van Halen “Hot For Teacher” inspired jam sesh in the middle of the song.

SALES‘ Spotify bio reads,

all the pop, no industry bullshit.”

No industry bullshit and the two Orlando natives, Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih, still managed to sell out The Social.

Morgan and Shih carved out a special place in the ORL scene with their exposed pop, lush sound and matter of fact vocals. 

The duo released “Talk A Lot” in the fall of 2017 and left us woozy off its sensuous offering. The single is layered with a jazzy intuition; soft breathing exercises are woven into each chorus, until you suddenly exhale, “denial…

Always the strategic, if almost blasé, release schedule, SALES gave us space over the winter and put out “Off and On” February of this year. “White Jeans” followed suit in May with the same artwork aesthetic, (a single picture taped onto an off-white background).

No more of the colorful collages we grew accustomed to with the SALES LP. A new, and very exciting SALES era is here. Thank you laid-back pop gods. We’re at your feet. 

SALES are bringing good company this tour in No Vacation. The San Francisco-turned Brooklyn bands’ brand of bedroom-esque pop is the perfect compliment.

Local apple of our eye, Sugarplum, joins this lineup with her sweet vocals and stirring melodies. This bill is everything right with the world, all showcased in one. <3

Now is your chance to become casually (obsessively) entranced on a Thursday evening in Orlando.
