Block x Blog - Revolution Live, Green Room, America's Backyard, Fort Lauderdale - April 20

Real talk: The south Florida music scene is changing.

Influences are being muddled -- those playing to a specific genre these days are likely to fall to the wayside, and while it's never easy to coordinate even a handful of bands for one show, Block x Blog soared over the weekend by hosting thirty genre-bending bands over three stages in support of Record Store Day 2013. Though it wasn't exempt from a few hitches, Block x Blog brought together the most creative and diverse group of musicians yet this year. With Holy Ghost! as headliners and (much needed) reinforcement like Jacuzzi Boys, PLAINS, Suede Dudes, Killmama, and Gaps, it was going to take a bit more than a few late starts to scare us away.
