Lydia Lunch's Orlando takeover 

Just a performance here by Lydia Lunch would've been notable enough. But last September, her visit to Orlando was practically a full-on occupation. With her famous slash and sear, the NYC No Wave icon did indeed perform – twice. In addition to that, however, she also presented a visual art exhibit at the Gallery at Avalon Island, did a reading at CityArts Factory and made a guest appearance at a special dinner event based on her cookbook (!) at Maxine's on Shine. And while she was here, she was the toast of the underground.
