So this group of emo kids walks into a bar, then another, then more, and even more after that. No, it’s not the beginning of a bad joke, but what actually happened at The Social in downtown Orlando, until it was packed to capacity on February 4th.

When I first heard Stephen Kellogg’s masterful Blunderstone Rookery in 2013, I quickly realized he was an artist I needed to see in concert. I was new to the music of Kellogg , but immediately impressed by his distinctive music and purposeful lyrics. Unfortunaately, the stars never aligned and he lingered near the top of my must-see list for a few years. Earlier this week, at the cozy Social in Orlando, I finally had the chance to catch him live, and it was well worth the wait.

Ghost Show Review – Orlando
People were baptized in the church of Ghost on November 2nd in Orlando. The Swedish metal outfit gave communion to 500 + fans at the Hard Rock Live clamoring to be within the breath of the band, and they delivered one of the best shows I have seen in 2016. Ghost has spent most of the year traveling the festival circuit on their critically acclaimed Popestar EP behind the lead single “Square Hammer” a pop ditty, banger that hails satan in the process. Papa Emeritus III and the Nameless Ghouls play up the shock rock, but behind the robes and masks is a metal band with great songs, and an even greater live show.
