Melrose in the Mix

I’ve given detailed looks into at least a couple hot sessions of the excellent Melrose in the Mix live recording series that happens on the reg inside downtown’s Orlando Public Library, like here when it featured local Americana royalty Terri Binion and most recently here when the it leveled up and showcased a notable national act this summer with alternative-rap star Onry Ozzborn. I’m not always sure you’re listening, though, so I keep trying because this is one of the city’s most uniquely up-close music experiences and not enough people know about it.

But now’s an especially opportune time to get on this train because the Melrose has just rolled out a sterling string of upcoming close encounters with some unmissable area talent and beyond even. Beginning this month on Oct. 29, the series will once again partner with Swamburger Presents to bring in a touring act, Austin’s the Vapor Caves, who will do a session in advance of their concert the next night at Iron Cow.
