This Little Underground
Bao Le-Huu takes on Orlando Calling
Published: November 17, 2011
It would be a great thing for the city if Orlando Calling eventually proved sustainable, if anything just for the boost of activity, culture and name recognition for us. The numbers weren’t what the organizers wanted, but they produced a legitimate music festival with a real festival atmosphere. Here’s hoping that they’ll commit to working to build this festival, because the people who attended this maiden one were enthusiastic. And it’s always nice to see that kind of energy and vibration. So, yeah, I’ll take primetime action like this for us. It’s not the end-all. But it is a nice, internationally iconic addition to our scene. Only good things can come from hordes of fans looking to Orlando for music. Believe it or not, that benefits even the most underground corridors of our scene. Like many of you, I always want things to be perfect. But I know when something pretty good is in front of me. And this is my bid for its return.
