Flyer of the Week: Citrus Circuit Tour, at Tobacco Road June 25 and Propaganda June 26

Prior to the advent of astro-drink Tang and its evil twin Sunny D, Florida was the undisputed Bordeaux of the breakfast drink game. These days though, our prime regional product isn't O.J. alone. We've been forced by circumstance (a.k.a. evil, artificial orange drinks) to diversify into such things as cultivating the Sunshine State's deeply rooted musical culture. Hence, the five-city Citrus Circuit tour.

The juicy, oversized brainfruit of Lauris Vidal is a late June musical showcase with a mission statement to "revive state pride." Performers will include homegrown folk, roots, southern, and alt. country bands such as The Takers, Have Gun Will Travel and Truckstop Coffee, as well as organizer Vidal himself. The bands will carpool and share gear, making a string of stops in their individual hometowns of Daytona Beach, Miami, Lake Worth, Tampa, and Orlando. For a full rundown of the tour dates, plus band bios, check out the press release here.
