Friday, Sept. 30-Sunday, Oct. 2 – Fifth Annual ELLA Music Fest
Now in its unlikely fifth year, the female-centric ELLA fest, organized as always by local musician Robert Johnson, has taken on the feel of a seasonal institution; the buzz surrounding it (finally) is centered less on whether or not the grass-roots event will happen, and more on the quality of its participants. Luckily, this edition is filled to the brim with interesting acts, from Britt Daley, whose breakout-worthy electro-pop has energized the scene this year, to buzz-worthy acts like ATTIC and veterans like Sunny. This year also features spoken-word artists, visual artists and plenty of local vendors. If the success of ELLA’s early fundraising events are any indication, Orlando is ready to cement this fest’s status as a greater good. – Justin Strout (6:30- 11 p.m. Friday, through Oct. 2 at Orlando Brewing, 1301 Atlanta Ave.; $10-$15 day pass, $20-$25 weekend pass; 407-872-1117; facebook.com/ellamusicfest)
