with Indigo Blak, Black Haw Shake, the Welzeins, Crenshaw, the Grand Collab All Stars | 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 29 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Orange Ave. | willspub.org
One of Orlando’s most bumping local showcases, the Grand Collab celebrates its first anniversary with a party that’s as bright as the smart event’s reputation over its brief history. Sniffing out artists without care to genre can skew a little messy and distracting live, like a grown-up show & tell with too much community Kool-Aid, but that’s not quite the way the Grand Collab’s tasteful organizers play the game. Instead, they craft a rare evening of conversation between diverse acts with a real flow, thanks to DJs and hosts who care to make your night, not just make a night. The party’s talent is legit, including Indigo Blak (senses-tingling R&B), the Welzeins (garage punk maniacs), Black Haw Shake (stop-in-your-tracks folk conjurer), Crenshaw (heated country rockers), plus a special bonus collab in the Grand Collab All Stars.
