Local “garage pop doo-slop rock” band the Palmettes have gained no small renown for tearing it up on stages across Orlando – playing with the likes of Autarx, Wet Nurse, the Woolly Bushmen and the Wildtones. But they’ve been quietly amassing a body of work along the way, and they’re finally ready to release it as a demo – on the only logical format, the cassette, natch – and are throwing a party to mark the occasion. Early tracks online display sure-footed strut and sass, straddling raw garage rock and fun-loving doo-wop, which is gonna sound choice on spools of lovely magnetic tape. Expect to hear these nuggets given a ragged live airing. Joining in for the night are TV Dinner, Brunch Sluts and Tam Tam the Sandwich Man and the Magical Sugar Cookies bashing it out one more time(?). We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that $5 at entry both gets you in the show and scores you a copy of the Tell Me More
cassette. Sweet, sweet DIY.
