Watching a performer smash cake into an enthusiastic fan’s face sounds like something that would happen at a Blue Man Group show, not an EDM concert.
But when the EDM performer in question is Steve Aoki, all bets are off.

In this week’s Orlando dining news round-up, charity promotions and a lot of new openings. Are you hungry? Let’s dive in…
Shake Shack is hosting The Great American Shake Sale through May 31. Guests who donate $2 or more to No Kid Hungry will receive a card for a complimentary hand-spun shake (valued at $6.00) redeemable on their next visit. One hundred percent of donations will benefit No Kid Hungry.
The lights went down at the House of Blues and Walk the Moon takes the stage. As the adoration of the packed crowd calms down slightly, the band launches into a rendition of “Circle of Life” by Elton John. Fitting since they are on Disney property.
The crowd appears slightly bewildered but rises to occasion to sing along by the time the band gets to the chorus.
Alt-rock band Failure will play the House of Blues Orlando on October 11, with Hum and Torche opening.
Failure was formed in the early-90s, but hit it big in the mid-90s with their third album Fantastic Planet. The first single from that release, “Stuck on You,” reached #23 on Billboard ‘s Alternative Songs Chart.
Yesterday (June 13), House of Blues Orlando hosted an event called Local Brews Local Grooves that featured sampling of beers made in Florida along with live entertainment.
The event started at 4pm. It cost $5 to get in and then $3 a piece for a 3oz pour of beer. You could get a wristband for $15 that gave you 5 pours and a souvenier plastic cup. No real savings for buying 5 at a time, which I found odd, but I figured I’d buy the wristband to limit myself to 5 samples. We also got a booklet offering beer descriptions and a layout map of the breweries.
The House of Blues Orlando will host Local Brews Local Grooves, a craft beer event, on Saturday, June 13.
The following breweries will be representing with samples of their local brews, with more to be announced:
- Bold City Brewery: Jacksonville, FL
- Brew Hub: Lakeland, FL
- Darwin Brewing Co: Bradenton, FL
- Dogfish Head Brewery: Milton, DE
- Florida Avenue Brewing Co: Tampa, FL
- Wops Hops Brewing Company: Sanford, FL
In 1990 Extreme‘s Pornograffitti album came out, and I was blown away by how good it was from start to finish. It was rock with a touch of funk and a lot of attitude, with some beautiful ballads thrown in.
Flash forward 25 years, and I’m waiting inside the House of Blues Orlando, waiting to hear Extreme perform the entire Pornograffitti album live. Yes, I’d heard most of the songs live in various concerts over the years, but this would be the first time I would hear the album played all the way through.
Legendary rock band Tesla will be returning to Orlando for a show at the House of Blues Orlando on Friday, April 17.
Tesla formed in Sacramento, CA in 1985, and released their debut album, Mechanical Resonance in 1986. It went Top 40 on the album charts with hit singles like “Modern Day Cowboy,” “Gettin’ Better,” and “Little Suzi.” It also has one of my favorite tracks by them, “Cumin’ Atcha Live.”
Not bad for a first album, but it was their second album, The Great Radio Controversy, which launched them into superstardom in 1989. Rock radio loved singles like “Hang Tough” and “Heaven’s Trail (No Way Out),” but it was the ballad “Love Song” that gave the band their first Top Ten Pop single.
