Florida Spotlight: Girls on the Beach

February 2, 2012

Girls on the Beach

Top of this Thursday to you. Not much time to bestow heaps of (deserved) praise upon these fine gentlemen, but just check out this track and be blown away. Girls on the Beach – fuzzed out, summertime garage surf, if you’re one for descriptive adjectives.

They’re pretty new to the Orlando show scene so I have yet to catch them live. As their Bandcamp only hosts two songs, I’m excited to see what else they have up their sleeves. Catch them next this Friday, February 3rd at Will’s Pub in Orlando.

Florida Spotlight: The Gun Hoes

January 21, 2012

Hello all! I’ve taken a long break from writing about music, but I recently acquired an awesome new record player and I’ve gone mad with vinyl fever. A limited-edition whore, if you will. I’ve also been collecting records and cassettes from local bands for awhile now and have been sifting through all the demos I’ve picked up over the past year or so.  Last night I was the fan-girl that listened to the band’s CD on the way home from the concert, and I just can’t hold the word in about these south Florida boys in any longer!

World, meet The Gun Hoes from Hollyweird, FL. We (Wet Nurse) just played with them last night at Uncle Lou’s, and if you weren’t there you missed out! We last played with them in Miami on tour this past August @ Churchill’s and it was awesome to see them again. They’ve been building up a lot of buzz and have gotten on some great shows. I am so happy for them! Just take a listen to the album! It’s so happy and fuzzy and poppy and raw. Their live show is just as amazing and you can’t help but get up and move.

Also, “Rawhide” is a free download on their Bandcamp, so go snag it!
