No Friends, Khann, Grave Return, Teenage Softies show preview

Is it OK if we just go ahead and refer to No Friends as a local band? Yeah, we know the reason most people outside of Orlando pay attention to them is because Tony Foresta of Municipal Waste is the lead singer, but hey, it’s not for nothing that the other 75 percent of the group – current and former members of New Mexican Disaster Squad, VRGNS and Gatorface – hail from right here in the 407. So, yeah, they’re local, which gives Orlando yet another excellent hardcore band to call its own. Of course, No Friends doesn’t play anywhere all that often, so this free show is a no-excuses kind of deal, made more enticing by the inclusion of local grindcore titans Khann and the punks in Grave Return and Teenage Softies. –Jason Ferguson (with Khann, Grave Return, Teenage Softies; 9 p.m. at Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave.; free; 407-898-5070;
