Puscifer, who wrap up their second North American tour in support of Money $hot, have announced a show at Ruth Eckerd Hall on November 3 at 8 pm. Maynard James Keenan said of the Puscifer’s live offering: “This show is so much more than just a band regurgitating songs. This is a multi-media performance unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed. There are those who know, and there are those who will know soon enough.”

Puscifer kicked off the Money $hot – Round 1 tour the day after the 10-song album’s October release, playing the Monster Mash Festival on November 1 with the next six weeks spent trekking from coast-to-coast presenting sold-out performances that marry the concept of concert and theater. Money $hot landed at #1 on Billboard’s Independent Music chart, #2 on the Alternative Albums chart and #30 on the Top 200. The Kansas City Star, in a live review, said “not much emerges from the music world these days that feels genuinely unique, but Puscifer’s Money $hot tour qualifies. Each component of the show was first-rate: the sound mix, the videos, the musical performance and the theatrics. It all added up to a show that was as memorable as it was unique.”

Puscifer’s touring line-up is Keenan, guitar player Mat Mitchell, singer Carina Round, drummer Jeff Friedl, keyboard player/vocalist Mahsa Zargaran and the newest addition, bass player Paul Barker (Ministry, Lead Into Gold).

Higher Truth is available via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), and fans can purchase the deluxe version of the album.

Overheard in Orlando: Swan take, Real talk, and Fringe

Swan Take
Someone certainly ruffled some feathers recently when six cygnets (baby swans) went missing from Lake Eola. Initially,in a post made by City Commissioner Patty Sheehan, the post mentioned that a predator or natural activity would not have resulted in such a large number of swans going missing. The post snowballed with over a thousand shares. Billboards are now reading “RETURN OUR SWANS,” and PETA has even offered a $5,000 reward for the safe return of the little guys. Many walking around Lake Eola for the 2016 AIDS Walk took notice of the one single swan on her empty nest, head cradled under her wing. It’s been noted that the security cameras around the park had not been working, which has resulted in no leads to the animal theft. If anyone has any information to the whereabouts of these six little swans, please contact CrimeLine at 800-423-TIPS.

Real Talk
Stuff just got for REAL for Watermark columnist and local radio personality Sabrina Umbra from Real Radio’s 104.1 FM’s News Junkie, who happily announced she’s not going anywhere. Sabrina’s contract was up for renewal and, from what we’ve heard on 104.1, she was able to negotiate a pretty good deal extending her run in Orlando for another three years.

AIDS Walk Orlando 2016

Share this story:

More than 1,000 walkers braved gray skies to follow the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – the walk’s traditional leader – on a stroll around Lake Eola for the 21st annual AIDS Walk Orlando, Hope and Help’s second largest annual fundraiser. Hope and Help’s mission is to inspire, equip and mobilize people to take action against HIV/AIDS. On April 16, walkers supported this mission through fundraising and supported their friends by donning shirts where they’d written the names of loved ones for whom they walked.

As of April 18, the AIDS Walk raised $92,000 and money was still coming in, according to Russell Walker, Hope and Help’s community development director. Last year’s event raised $121,000. Walker says not only are they still collecting donations, but the corporate matching grants will take five or six weeks to come in.

On Thursday January 11, 2016, scientists announced they had finally discovered “Gravity Waves,” which Albert Einstein insisted existed exactly 100 years ago when in 1916 he formally presented his Theory of Relativity. It took a full century for the science to catch up to the vision and brilliance of Einstein’s magnificent mind, but as of mere weeks ago, his hundred year-old “theory” is no longer that. It has been proven. It is fact.

Now, I ask you: What do Albert Einstein,Elton John, John Lennon, Emma Thompson, Billy Joel, James Cameron, Sir Ian McKellen, Kathy Griffin, Woody Allen, Warren Buffet, George Carlin, Carl Sagan, Richard Strauss, Christopher Hitchens, Bill Maher, Mark Zukerberg, Steven Wozniak, Steven Hawking and Michael Wanzie all have in common?

Glamorous Orlando superstar Ginger Minj (OK, Joshua Eads Brown) took the world by storm this year, placing second on Season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The drama of all the drama, though (and there was lots of drama), was Brown’s reconciliation with his father. Oh, also, there’s a completely accurate Adele interpretation to contend with. Well done.

Following the departure of editor-in-chief Steve Blanchard, two-decade bottle of Orlando Weekly hair products Billy Manes started at Watermark on June 22 in that position. Have you ever heard of him? HAVE YOU? This writer is he, and is very happy about his decision.

Uprisings: July 11 – 29, 2015

By : Billy Manes

“I’m mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore,” the film Network’s Howard Beale spit into the ether in the foggy 1970s pixilation of televised news via cinema. This is not the 1970s. This, Uprisings, is not your standard news column about the comings and goings of political figures in power suits, nor is it that stick in that yellowing mud that would direct you into the warm embrace of comatose electoral futility. This is not something to scream about from the window in your chosen alley. This, instead, is a party.

Say what you want about the impending election season – that it is terrible, or terrible, or maybe it’s more terrible, because mine is better than yours and yours is super terrible – but if there’s anything we’ve learned about presidential election cycles (replete with congressional and municipal leanings), it’s that no matter how terrible it might seem, disengagement is worse. We could go through the motions of the Bush v. Gore decision that landed on former Gov. Jeb Bush’s nose like a dime; we could talk about Sen. Marco Rubio’s inexplicable immigration dance and the Florida House term that brought it; we could laugh about dancing, Dancing, DANCING!

And we will.
