Orlando Mixtape combines British rock and cocktails for a good cause


After technical difficulties ruined Adele’s performance at the Grammys, it left us itching for a good rendition of “All I Ask” sans impromptu mic-drop into the piano. You can ask for the soulful diva’s tunes and other musical hits from across the pond at this week’s Orlando Mixtape Volume 4: British Invasion event, when Giti Khalsa of Seven Mary Three and other Orlando musicians take the stage at the Social to play songs from the Sex Pistols, Queen, David Bowie and the Beatles at your request, sort of like a
live personal playlist. The event benefits Urban Think Foundation, and at Orlando Mixtape Volume 3 (the one with a Southern rock theme), the group says it raised nearly $20,000 for literacy programs. For some extra $20 bills, you can also sign up for the VIP “Never Mind the Bollocks” cocktail tour, featuring the Woods, the Courtesy Bar and Olde 64.

7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | orlandomixtape.org | $25-$30 concert only, $100 includes VIP cocktail tour
