Central Florida Rock Concert Calendar
Labor Day Weekend is pretty much a dud, but the month really picks up with a slew of great shows all over the Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa areas. RARA’s Farm’s favorite live band comes to the Plaza in Orlando, and there’s a killer festival in St. Augustine with one of the most creative line-ups all year.
