“They are talented, entertaining, distinctive and fun. But, most of all, Kolars are damn good, and they deserve your attention next time they’re in your area.” That’s what we wrote about this talented duet the last time they passed through The Sunshine State. Now, they are back and they are a can’t miss act for fans of new and catchy rock.
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of seeing two exciting bands at Will’s Pub. Crowd pleasers to the sold out show were Teen Suicide and Elvis Depressedly. I was not overly familiar with the music of either band previously, so my ears were in for a new treat.
On Wednesday night at Orlando’s cozy Social, myself and the rest of the fans crammed into the packed club on Orange Ave were treated to a night of unabashed pop rock fun. As one of the few post-college-aged geezers in the room, I felt a little bit like Thornton Melon at a Grand Lakes University frat party, but I loved every minute of the fun and chaos.
“Ron Gallo is a rock and roll trio lead by a tall, big-haired weirdo of the same name.” Ron Gallo also makes some damn good, albeit a bit weird, rock ‘n roll that deserves a trip or two through your headphones.
I have been very vocal about how much I like Torche. They raised the bar again when they recently played the New World Brewery in Tampa. Torche is hands down one of the best live shows around, and they prove time and time again why they should be closer to the top of the pantheon of the current metal scene.
