Saturday, April 14 – The Festival of Light and Sound
the Plaza Live
425 N. Bumby Ave.
While it often seems like a never-ending pursuit, documentary film Happy, a collaborative effort of Oscar-winning director Roko Belic (Genghis Blues) and producer Tom Shadyac (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar Liar), traversed the world to capture global definitions of the word. It’s a tricky one to pinpoint, but tonight’s screening event, dubbed “The Festival of Light and Sound,” certainly hits a happy nerve locally with the throw-it-all-in kind of evening that’s becoming ever more accustomed to Orlando. Expect to watch artists live in action, eat bites from local joints and dodge impromptu wall scaling courtesy of Zoic Nation. Rounding out the night on stage, a packed lineup of album-release spots by headliners In Curses and SKIP, alongside the one-time-only appearance by 12-member, all-female group Beautiful Chorus. – Aimee Vitek
