If you like feelgood indie rock, then you’ll want to check out the double bill of Pepper and RDGLDGRN at the House of Blues Orlando on September 12.
Pepper formed in Hawaii in 1997, moving to the mainland two years later. Their music reflects this, as their indie rock sound definitely has an island rhythm to it.
Their newest self-titled CD, Pepper, was released on September 3, and is full of upbeat rock tunes about love and having fun. “Mess Around” (“F*ck Around” on the explicit version), is a stand out earwig that will have you dancing with its feel-good vibe.
Joining them on the bill is RDGLDGRN, and their debut CD, Red Gold Green LP, was also released on September 3. This trio from the D.C. music scene fuses indie rock and hip hop into a sound all their own.
The album features Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl on the drums while producer Pharrell Williams helped pen the future single “Doing The Most.” My personal favorite track is “Lootin’ In London.”
Tickets to the show are $25 in advance online or at the HOB box office, and $27 day of show. This show is all ages. House of Blues Orlando is located at Downtown Disney West Side at Walt Disney World.
To warm you up for the show, here are videos from Pepper and RDGLDGRN:
The Neighbourhood and The 1975 bring their tour to The Social in downtown Orlando on June 11.
Though The Neighbourhood’s identity remained a mystery to everyone, initially, they still won fans over with their atmospheric rock tunes like “Sweater Weather.” Tourmates The 1975 initially started as a punk band, but have since forged a musical path through electro-indie rock.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. This show is all ages. Several of this tour’s shows have sold out, so get your tickets now.
The Social is located at 54 N. Orange Ave.
