Normally around this time of the year, I’ll post about bands going out on summer tours or doing the festival circuit, as we are now in festival season. It’s nice to hear about a band who are just concentrating on doing shows throughout a single state. In this case I speak of Among Giants, an Orlando-based trio consisting of Greg Hughes, Zachary Anderson, and Marcus Menendez-Aponte. This punk/pop band have been around for a few years releasing a few albums and singles here and there, including a lathe cut record. For their summer tour, they’re bringing along fellow Orlando residents Zap Dragon & The Attack and rather than get complicated about a special name for the tour, they’re calling it Florida Tour 2013. Fair and simple. If you are in or heading to Florida this July, you’ll be able to check them out, so plan your evenings or vacation time accordingly. There will be a few other bands along the way, some of which are indicated below:
July 4… Winter Park, FL (I4 Fest)
July 5… Sarasota, FL (TBA)
July 6… Saint Petersburg, FL (Fubar) $
July 7… Lakeland, FL (Evolution Records) #
July 8… Gainesville, FL (TBA)
July 9… Tallahassee, FL (TBA)
