In the fall of 2021, a festival took place in New Port Richey, Fla. Contained within are the bands that played and, yes, they are almost all from Florida.

The bands have wildly veering styles, but somehow I ended up digging about sixty percent of the songs presented on this compilation. Your pleasure may vary but that’s the fun in exploring. –Sean Koepenick (Ashtray Monument,
