the music scene in florida (or lack thereof)

Now playing: Keller Williams – Vacate

Seriously now, Florida is not the best vacation spot if you’re a live music lover. Well, you could probably see some pretty crappy Jimmy Buffett ripoffs in Key West. I got to witness that my sophomore year in college. Unless you’re throwing a big festival down here, there’s really no scene. Certain bands will roll through when they feel like rolling through, but I see no scene down here at all. That’s a huge change from my Chicago stomping grounds.

How do Florida music fans deal?

    Seriously now, Florida just has no music scene except for the upcoming Langerado Music Festival.

    Well, I’m all the way down in Key West and I gotta say that this winter there was actually quit some great music coming down to the southernmost point. We had a week(!) of Donna The Buffalo, Popa Grows Funk, Eric Lindell, Papa Mali……
    Maybe not like in Chicago but not bad for a city of 20 000 people. All the music is FREE since none of the places charge cover.So don’t feel to bad for us and the weather definitely makes up for anything we might miss….

    That’s for damn sure…without the music scene in Chicago it would be a pretty lame place to live sometimes.

    Whenever I want to see anyone in Chicago, I have to be committed or else I’ll be paying an arm and a leg for a cover that I don’t know is worth it or not…
