On February 15th I went to the Gallery at Avalon Island (39 South Magnolia Ave, Orlando, Florida) for the salon style in-between series. Patrick Greene, Avalon's curator host this music series between art exhibits on the week before Third Thursday when all the downtown galleries have opening for their new exhibits. This group featured a bass guitar, drums, a xylophone and a cello. There was no cost to attend, but donations are always welcome. I set up to sketch behind the drummer and sketched with vigor through the performance. The group was known as "Attached Hands". The experimental music felt new age and melodic. It soothed and felt improvised.
The hippest folks in Orlando can be found at Avalon once a month. The In-between Series just won the "Best New Imaginative Music Series" by voters of The Orlando Weekly. The series is cultured, it’s progressive and it’s free. The next performance will likely be August 17th but that is unconfirmed since the invitation isn't out yet. It is a relaxing way to start out a Monday evening once a month.
