Dear recent Orlando transplant:

Ok, so you just moved to Orlando from New York / Philly / Chicago / San Francisco / et al. You feel lost, uprooted, misplaced -- you're starting to think Orlando might suck. Eager to find some nightlife in this town, you go to Lattitudes on Church Street, Slingapour's on Wall Street and that mega-club on Orange Avenue owned by one of those Backstreet Boys (Orlando's finest celebrities). Maybe you even think International Drive, Citywalk or Downtown Disney is where everyone hangs out in this town. Now you really think Orlando sucks.

Well, you're wrong. There is more to this city than theme park "nightlife" and crappy clubs with guys wearing shiny shirts, but you have to know where to look. Instead of complaining about how lame Orlando is compared to your city of origin, why not get out there and support your new scene -- it's a lot better than you think! After all, you moved here for a reason, right? (I'm guessing to escape the cold weather.) So you can do one of two things: either 1) move back to the city you think is sooooo much more awesome or 2) quit bitchin', check the events below and DON'T SLEEP on the shit that is happening!

Today Does Not Exist

Whatever you do today won't matter, since today is The Day That Doesn't Exist -- and the Orlando Sentinel's Kelly Fitzpatrick has highlighted our awesome party in her column today.

As you may know, today is a special day that only happens once every four years, or as The Peacock Room in Orlando refers to it, "The Day that Doesn't Exist." We won't get into the semantics on that statement; needless to say they're throwing a party, and you're invited.

Word. You know the drill -- Peacock Room, tonight, be there!!!

2/29 is The Day That Doesn't Exist

I'm finally getting back into the swing of things here in Orlando (PS... I heart warm weather). This Friday I am playing with Nigel and Cub at the Peacock Room for our Day That Doesn't Exist Party (get it -- leap year??? Oh, we are too hilarious and witty, aren't we???).

Anyway -- be there, it will be awesome!

The Worst Music Party killed in Brooklyn

NYC was amazing, as usual... on Thursday after we annihilated the Worst Music Party®, we walked out of the bar to 4 inches of snow. That was fun -- until the next day when we had to trudge through leftover snow/slush puddles at every intersection. Nothing better than wet feet in cold weather. All in all, it was an excellent trip. I even saw David Cross at a bar on the lower east side and John Goodman eating a hot dog at the airport.

Hellllllllooooooo, Brooklyn!!!

I leave for NYC tomorrow, so I will be taking a blogging break (try not to miss me too much, kids!!!). Why will I be in NYC, you ask? Because the Worst Music Party is invading Savalas in Brooklyn.

The only downside is that TEPR is playing the same night -- what the hell is up with that???!!! He couldn't be playing Friday or Saturday??? Damn... oh well, I guess I can catch him at the WMC.

To ease my pissy-ness, here are some Mp3s:

TEPR - Minuit Jacuzzi (Original).mp3

Yelle - A Cause Des Garcons (TEPR Remix).mp3

Valentine's Day = Van Halen + F*ck Love

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and you have two options -- you can join the masses by dining at an overcrowded restaurant with your sweetie OR you can get really drunk and rock out to the reunited Van Halen at the Amway Arena. My money is on the latter.

Whatever you choose to do on this corporate holiday from hell, be sure to stop by Crooked Bayou afterwards for our F*ck Love party.

To recap:

After this:
