Fall Guide 2012
Fall Guide 2012: Music
Published: September 26, 2012
Imagine seeing Eddie Vedder, M83, Metric, Gotye, GZA, Andrew Bird, Rascal Flatts, Fiona Apple, the Who, Band of Horses, Weezer, Deerhoof and more without leaving town. While that lineup may sound like what some hoped for from last year's Orlando Calling (which is not returning this year), it's actually a mere sampling of the fall music slate in Orlando. And that's not even counting bona fide events like the return of the surprise hit Accidental Music Festival or WJRR 101.1's Halloweenie Roast starring meant-for-each-other dual headliners Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson. So rest up – you have a lot to take in in a short amount of time.
