Turn it up. The Orlando Mixtape series returns to the Social with a focus on Southern rock. With a setlist that promises to include lots of audience requests (there’s a form over at orlandomixtape.org
), Brian Chodorcoff, Thomas Wynn, Giti Khalsa and the rest of the band will probably be playing lots of Allman Brothers, Molly Hatchet and, of course, Skynyrd. Get ready to stretch out “Orlando” into four syllables so it fits the tune of “Sweet Home Alabama.” And you know what goes great with Skynyrd? Bourbon. To start this party right, the Mixtape offers a guided preshow tour of four downtown bars – the Woods, the Courtesy Bar, Aero and Olde 64 – with tastings of craft bourbon cocktails available at each stop. The price tag on that tour is a little hefty, but you can feel good about the fact that proceeds benefit the Urban Think Foundation.
