The Taxpayers are here from Portland, Oregon! Waohoh! Listen to their rowdy, anthemic folk punk at

DeLand Before Fest: Landlord, Premadonnasaurs, Among Giants, Critter, John Laye & Ed

Back in October, we had a pretty great house show at the Elsasser house (RIP) as a prelude to the funsanity that was the come that very FEST weekend. It was a tuesday night affair, but all the bands managed to rock it accordingly. It was also a mandatory costume party in honor of Halloween and how much fun it is to wear women’s clothes.  I just managed to find some photos of Premadonnasaurs playing (they are a really fun pop punk band from St. Augustine, peep their tuneage at Here’s some photo action.


M. Pius ladies and gentlemen, the
best drunk drummer this side of the Mississip. Signing off,

DeLand area, fuck wit us, we bury ya.

Hi all.  Due to a recent handful of DIY house shows that have sprinkled into our town, I have cautiously and optimistically started a website based on the house shows that we have in DeLand. Here I and possibly other people will post the latest house show dates as well as reviews and photos from shows. It’s about time DeLand became the house show stop after St. Augustine (or Orlando, as the case may be.) Let’s work together and keep fun shows, good bands, and good times flowing thru D-Town. -Nathan
