Big Orlando Line-Up and Videos
Well there’s been some exciting change since I last wrote about the Big Orlando, Central Florida’s biggest rock music event in years. The line-up was filled out, and the newly announced bands are pretty damn impressive.
Make sure you Like our Facebook at the top of our site for more rock music coverage.
Make sure you check out some videos of our featured bands below the article.
We already knew about Alternative rock legends Weezer and one of the hottest bands around, Fall Out Boy, riding the huge success of their latest single “Centuries.” In addition, we were excited to see our favorite edgy ska band, Dirty Heads, Alt-Nation favorite Young The Giant and two very hot alternative bands, Big Data and J. Roddy Walston and The Business.
Since that first review, things have been kicked up a notch. The big news for me was the addition of Sleeper Agent. The Kentucky-based band has one of the most unique sounds on rock radio today, and they are famous for their entertaining shows. They are a can’t miss band. Another band in the same vein with a great live reputation is another newly added act, New Politics.
Know Hamilton, of “We Can Work It Out” fame is another intriguing artist. An interesting surprise for me was the addition of The Crazy Carls. We’ve wandered into The Flagler Tavern in New Smyrna Beach twice in the past year and both times, found these talented guys gracing the stage. They are uber-talented and charismatic as hell, and local guys to top it off. Make sure you check them out.
The final four announced bands are all talented as well: Bear Hands, Twin Atlantic, The Hip Abduction and A Heroes Fate. All told – 14 excellent alternative rock bands in one fantastic day in Central Florida – December 7th and Central Florida Fairgrounds.
Tickets are available here: The Big Orlando
