Where

  • Stardust Video and Coffee

    Stardust started life as a video rental place that served coffee and over the years has morphed to serve the changing desires of the community. Among its many functions (work and study spot, café, live music venue, market host) and despite its ramshackle air, the ’dust is prized by anyone looking for a quality buzz. The bartenders of the Slanted and Enchanted Bar (in the big room) are given free rein to come up with inventive craft cocktails; the Scotch Bar (in the smaller room) stocks exquisite bottles; and the bottled beer and cider selection is choice. For many, it’s a home away from home

We Say...

Alligator Indian isn’t an Orlando band, but the pair behind Asheville, N.C.’s spooky-good foray into at times Kate Bush-esque pop hails from here, and it seems the Thanksgiving holiday presents a good excuse to return home with their newly packaged sound. Their music is super-layered, and while the soundscape they navigate feels otherworldly, it’s got a familiar energy that echoes some of the best features of late ’80s/early ’90s pop. They’ll be performing the newest songs off their debut album, Spring I’m In, which they released, appropriately, in the spring of this year (although the band has been around in different formations since 2008). While chaotic, the album retains a strong sense of dramatic melody with a dark sense of humor, occasionally reminiscent of the sardonic lyrics of bands like the Magnetic Fields. This Black Friday show could, at the very least, help you dance off your gravy gut. – Ashley Belanger
