Soda with False Punk, Manic & the Depressives | 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27 | Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall, 1016 N. Mills Ave. | 407-898-0009 | donations accepted
Welcome Gainesville’s weirdest punk band, Soda, to Orlando’s best punk venue alongside notable local punks Manic & the Depressives and False Punk. Soda’s somewhat under the radar for Orlando ears, having released just one two-song EP that we can find, but the intrigue is plenty within that pair of tracks. The bizarre sludge slick of “Lisa Asks the Questions” rocks with alien vocals and perfectly encapsulates the thrashing abandon of restless boredom. The next track, “T.V.,” slows it down to lend a more subdued yet Kim Gordon-esque vocal delivery that draws any ear that seeks a stranger sort of revelation in the sounds they stuff into their heads. They’ll be filming a music video for Soda as well as a scene for an indie video called “Colonialtown Babylon” by noted local filmmaker Kate Shults. Go add your flicker to this peculiar flame.
