What You're Doing This Week (Dec. 18 - Dec. 24)

Friday, Dec. 19

  • Junkie Rush are at the Social. They're playing on Saturday night too.

Saturday, Dec. 20

  • The Future on Films in Space give me a psychedelic headache. I love them for that. They play tonight at Peacock Room.
  • The Supervillains host "A Very Villains Christmas Party" at Firestone. Santa Claus will be there, and I'm sure nobody will ask for a bag of dope or anything.

  • Chris Robertson is The Whale and the Wave. I guess he picked that name because Dashboard Confessional was already taken. He/It will be emoting tonight at Stardust.

Sunday, Dec. 21

  • I still can't believe that Inkwell played the Real Big Deal festival thing up in Gainesville. Not that they didn't deserve to be in front of such a big crowd, but, you know, they're not exactly known for being road-dogs, despite the fact that they put on a pretty great indie-rock show. Anyway, they're playing Back Booth tonight with Hyrdosonic, Oh Romeo and Soldier City Legends for something called "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

Monday, Dec. 22

  • Ours and Plain Jane Automobile at the Social. I will never â?? ever â?? understand the cult-like following that Ours has. Ever.

Tuesday, Dec. 23

  • Local nu-jazz outfit Innocent Assassins is performing at Natura.

  • Christmas is all about family, and there are few families in Orlando more tightly knit and beautifully dysfunctional than the Florida's Dying crew. Unlike your dysfunctional family, however, these guys know how to put on great punk rock shows with a three-day-old hangover, an empty bank account and a permanent sense of martyrdom. This celebratory affair will likely include all the regular ingredients of a FD bacchanalia: lots of PBR, and lots of near-riotous music. I only wish they would have had it on Christmas Eve, because nothing says "family" like "Fuck you mom and your stupid Santa Claus cookies, I'm going to the punk rock show."
