This Little Underground invades Florida Music Festival 

We quote the source on his selections for Friday's FMF showcase

FMF FRIDAY: THIS LITTLE UNDERGROUND PRESENTS ROADKILL GHOST CHOIR, with Case Work, American Party Machine, Good Graeff, E-Turn and DJ SPS

6:30 p.m. Friday, April 25 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | floridamusicfestival.com | $10

Orlando Weekly live music columnist Bao Le-Huu was invited to curate a critic’s choice showcase at this year’s Florida Music Festival (full lineup at floridamusicfestival.com). Here’s what he has to say about the local talent he’s highlighting on FMF Friday at the Social during downtown’s biggest music weekend.

Case Work
“This indie-pop project has more rock, more conviction and even sharper-cut melodies. It’s got gallop, atmosphere and sparkle. … this is clearly [Chandler] Strang’s (Saskatchewan) best work yet.” (Feb. 26)

American Party Machine
“These guys are completely stupid and, goddamn, I think they’re my new favorite Orlando band. Like Valient Thorr’s more outrageous redneck cousins, this party (duh) metal band is a head-on collision of big-balled rock & roll and campy ridiculousness.” (Feb. 20, 2013)

Good Graeff
“Sarasota’s Good Graeff [is] a likeable twin-sister powered act that would appeal to Tegan & Sara fans with their marketably fresh faces and folk-pop crispness.” (Dec. 18, 2013)

E-Turn and DJ SPS
“Emerging from the Second Subject Recordings family with major-league turntablist DJ SPS as her wingman, she’s a product of the city’s hip-hop intelligentsia. Moreover, a packed house turned out for her. … She’s got the goods, added to the pedigree, plus the support. What that equals is a potential star.” (May 15, 2013)
