Maximino — “It’s Happening”
Once more, I can’t even begin to imagine this Orlando music scene without one of the most humble musicians around; Gerald Perez, as Maximino. What really takes you away with the sounds behind his solo keyboard / guitar / cello / percussion act, is more than what’s digitally heard. Its full experience isn’t made through this and you’ve really got to see how Gerald begins and finishes each & every song that’s performed live. Obviously, life isn’t as convenient so we end up having to take the next best thing. Gerald plans to release a new track every Friday and the one above is from last week. Listen!

20130208 Hundred Waters w/ MSNRA, Maximino, & Euglossine, Elestial Sound Headquarters, Gainesville, FL
This was an awesome night. Great music and great friends. I have been unable to catch Hundred Waters and to see them in this great warehouse space, for a local show as they are about to embark on a sold out tour of the US was certainly a highlight of my live experiences and to see them with other great musicians just made it all better. I went with Ed and met Ann and Amy there. Old students are in both Hundred Waters and MSNRA so it was a Ram fest at the event. Love to see the old kids but please say your name when you say hello. ESHQ is in a quiet area off of downtown, wood fired pizza set up put front. Inside is a warehouse divided up for a show, cool bar and balcony, and great art and lights for event. Walked in as Euglossine was finishing so really did not get time to check it out. Maximino from Orlando was excellent, started with a 70s groove jam into a dark noise jam that ended up changing into two songs that sounded like Radiohead, and that is not a bad thing. MSNRA are a fantastic local hip-hop collective. Great set with a live band, excellent back up singers, and righteous lyrics had the crowd getting down. Hundred Waters set was intimate, special, and well received. The songs were all over the place barn stormers to whispering folk psych. So cool to Sam Moss up there creating that music. The DJs in between spun great sets as well. A very satisfying night indeed.

10/27- The Memoryhouse show at Will’s was far too overpriced ($10) and it showed with a low turnout. Acoqui played a terrible set that went literally unwatched before Maximino went on to play an amazing set, including a “No Ordinary Love” dedication to his mother. Maximino’s “Not so Cold Cave” set design looked great and his guitar solos on a new song showed how much growth he’s made over the past few months of playing his solo material.
10/28- My team lost 6-44.
10/29- Checked out the Alias Punch show at Will’s Pub. Orlando punk legend’s Tam Tam opened up the night playing a flawless set as usual. The best part about a Tam Tam show is how professional they sound and how solid their live performance is and true to the recordings. Alias Punch came on second and played two 10+ minute songs, both Halloween-themed. PUJOL headlined the event and played a paint-by-numbers punk style that cleared the stage-area.
10/31- Halloween weekend ended with a great party at the 1808 house as bands like Bob on Blonde, Pseudo Kids, and Permanent Nap playing inside the house. BoB gave their usual ear blowing performance while permanent Nap was an act I hadn’t seen yet and left very satisfied. They mixed soulful instrumentals with sultry lyrics that attracted the largest crowd into the house for the night.
