6 Florida Shows You Can't Miss in 2019

Hey there, Black Flamingos! AKA Florida goths. Please ignore the click baity title! I just want to post something up about some of the events coming our way this year! We’re barely into February and there’s already a killer line up of events, shows, and even a festival. You read that right, a festival.

Promoters all over that state are working their asses off this year to bring us some really special shows. So here they are, in chronological order. Let’s get out there and show some love! Check out our full list events page for a calendar of all shows coming up that I know of.

First though, I’m going to tell you about the festival going on in October first because I’m incredibly excited and quite frankly, it deserves to be at the top.
