You may call it burying the lede, but that headline just gave a tiny music festival a big boost. You're welcome, guys.
Shut Up & Play 2 is going down this Saturday, June 25 at 11/12 Lounge in Winter Park. It's the conclusion of three days of local music and live art and will feature headliners the Regi Wooten Band out of Nashville. Oh, and it's an all-instrumental funk jam. The show starts at 2pm and admission is $12 at the door. Here's the lineup. And here's brand-new Megan Fox bikini shots.
