Husband-and-wife team Michael and Carissa Alvarado of Us the Duo became popular Vine stars for their 6-second song covers, proof that the paths to a recording contract these days are as varied as the people who pursue them. Their most recent album, Just Love, dropped just a few weeks ago, and it drapes songs about relationships and love in vaguely rootsy pop hooks. Joining them are North Carolina's Gardiner Sisters, whose biggest claim to fame is a cover of Frozen's "Let It Go" that blew up on YouTube in 2014. We, for one, welcome our new social media overlords. 

with Gardiner Sisters | 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 8 | The Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Ave. | 407-228-1220 | plazaliveorlando.com | $18-$25
