If you’re the type of person who likes to be aware of what’s around them, you’re going to want to keep an eye on this new series launched by constant scene cheerleader Swamburger. Its goal is to assemble rising Orlando talents who are about to break and treat the shows as if they are already at that maximum achievement level where they are soon emphatically believed to be destined. It’s a night for people who love living on the cusp – the thrive before increased visibility threatens to taint pure artistry. This kick-off stars local funk force Leisure Chief and welcomes home notable soul act Fat Night from tour. It also packs hip-hop heat with Skip and Table for Three, while bringing in inventive R&B songwriter-producer Indigo Blak to skyrocket “On the Come Up” to maximum appeal.
