Though organizer and performer – Ad Nauseum, Flying Limbs, etc. – Glen Ritchey would have been easily forgiven for passing on the opportunity to run a three-day underground festival pretty much by himself again, here we are with the second edition of Florida Is Loud upon us. The lineup for the big Saturday show at Will's is pretty formidable, with a Miami contingent – including Holly Hunt, Shroud Eater and Other Body – anchoring a bill that includes Jacksonville's Wørsen and Tampa's Meatwound. The two bookending shows at Uncle Lou's promise to be deafening and intimate, with local-heavy lineups including Burn to Learn and Freakazoid along with Yashira and Petrichor (and an Integrity cover band). This whole weekend of FIL shows is a labor of love and personal enthusiasm that is so worth your time and dollars ... and advance earplug investment. Proceeds benefit the Zebra Coalition.
7 p.m. Friday-Sunday, Dec. 15-17 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave.; Uncle
Lou's Entertainment Hall, 1016 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org
