It’s only right to bring in the new year with some of the best talent Central Florida has to offer. Orlando’s own City Tucker is the man behind this show, giving the opportunity to the locals to show off a little bit to kick the year off the right way. I really have to buy a camera when I go to these shows. But you know, soon come.
Doors opened at 8 p.m., giving early supporters the chance to kick back and enjoy music while things came together. Guests were encouraged to hit the bar while they waited for the first group, Rap Supreme, to hit the stage. Rap Supreme engaged with the crowd while performing for a full 15-minute set. Next up, we saw LB 199X hit the stage, complete with band support and the songstress, Bria Zhanae.
The carefully thought out show gave some of the spotlight to Palmer Reed, a notoriously outstanding performer who gives the stage his all every single time. Last but not least, Cage and IF closed the show out leaving attendees eagerly ready for the next installment.
As a two-time attendee, I can say it’s more than worth it to grab a ticket to one of City Tucker’s shows. While most (if not all of you) are usually turned off by a price tag on a local showcase that isn’t free, take the time to support your local artists. Support means more than the occasional retweet on twitter, come out and support them when they are brave enough to share their art with you.
