Orlando Concert Picks This Week: Xavier Wulf, Viniloversus, Eugene Snowden and more



Eugene Snowden's Ten Pints of Truth
Soul iconoclast Snowden holds court weekly in this cozy venue. There is nothing else like this in the city.
10 p.m. Wednesday, April 5, at Lil Indies, free</p>

Venezuelan rockers and Latin Grammy contenders Viniloversus impress with a angular/catchy sound that calls to mind the Strokes and Franz Ferdinand, but with way more pop hunger.
9 p.m. Thursday, April 6, at DRIP, $10

Xavier Wulf
Memphis MC and former Raider Klan member hits Orlando as part of his "Hollow Be Thy Squad" tour (fucking genius moniker). Pro-tip: Check out the lush, Aphex Twin-sampling song by the same name.
7 p.m. Friday, April 7, at Backbooth, $20

The primary musical focus for emo hero Mike Kinsella (Cap'n Jazz, American Football, Joan of Arc), Owen's music is stripped down and deeply personal, but still packs the requisite heart-punch.
7 p.m. Saturday, April 8, at the Social, $20

Central Florida Antifest
Very informal house-party/noise-marathon gathers a good amount of the South's most infamous dissonance junkies; on the second day's lineup we noticed former Orlandoan (now Chicago resident) local boy-made-very-bad Rush Falknor is playing.
2 p.m. Sunday, April 9, contact organizers for address, donations encouraged

Dangerously precise Orlando band plies a heavy, dizzying sound that nods maniacally at Botch and even Nile – come get disoriented.
8 p.m. Monday, April 10, at 64 North, $5 suggested donation

Local fixture DJ Nigel John holds court in this noir-y space with an off-the-cuff vinyl-only mix of hip-hop, funk and dance music of all stripes.
9:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, at Herman's Loan Office, free</p>
