21 free concerts in Orlando this week (2/25-3/3)


P.S.A.: The incomparable Betty Wright is playing a free concert this week at Blues B-Q downtown with local soulful dazzlers, the Gerry Williams Band. It's a pretty cool week in free shows, with lots of intimate shows booked at Lil Indies, including Orlando's Oak Hill Drifters' Tom Cooper playing a solo set, folk artist Alice Wallace delivering her pure country grace from California and John Galm (Snowing, Street Smart Cyclist) performing his quietly brilliant new album, Sky of No Stars
