Wednesday August 24

Kid Laroi
Following the global hit of last year’s hit “Stay” with Justin Bieber, teenage Australian rapper The Kid Laroi is coming to Orlando on a headlining world tour that’s selling out everywhere. Multi-platinum sales and his own McDonald’s Meal Deal prove this Kid has his eyes on a bigger pop market stake beyond the rap game, so you better see him in a smaller venue. while you can. 8 p.m., House of Blues, Disney Springs, houseofblues.com, $150-$256. — Lynnette Cantos

Fizz & Chips
Chef Andy Bates and the folks at the Edible Education Experience Kitchen House invite you to an evening of British-style asses and bubbles. Wait until you come back, we swear “the spotted dick” doesn’t appear anywhere on this menu. Miami-based chef Bates, who once appeared on Food Network UK, will whip up a deluxe menu including Scotch eggs, beer-battered Atlantic cod, triple-cooked fries and smashed peas with lemon and Mint. It’s just for the sector. There will also be a “British Bake Off Dessert Board” featuring Eton’s Mess, Custard and Bakewell Tarts, as well as Millionaire’s Shortbread. You may or may not deploy a Mockney accent worse than Dick Van Dyke’s in Mary Poppins at the end of the evening. 6 p.m., Emeril Lagasse Foundation Kitchen House and Culinary Garden, 26 E. King St., eventbrite.com, $100. — Matthew Moyer

Garbology
You’ll be forgiven for putting down one of Orlando’s favorite institutions this week if you call Hollerbach a bit trashy. That’s because the rowdy German restaurant opened an art gallery upstairs in July (no, really), and that gallery is opening an exhibit called Garbology Thursday. Moriah Russo, director of the Art Haus gallery in Hollerbach, says 15 artists are included in this exhibition “on the theme of ‘waste'” and that some have taken the expected route and made works from “materials discarded, found and/or recycled, and post-consumer ephemera,” others were more conceptual in their approach, exploring issues of “consumption, waste, and…value” more deeply. includes loyal friends of this newspaper here Kieran Castaño, Kira Gondeck-Silvia, Richard Reep, Daniel Harris and Leah Sandler (and we were delighted to see a photo of Steph Lister, a talented former local who moved to Oakland a few years ago years, on the exhibition flyer).The show runs until October 6, so if you miss the party, you can always stop by for a visit and combine the best (artists in the city) with the wurst ( in your ass iette). 6 p.m., Hollerbach’s Art Haus, 205 E.

Daddy Yankee
With 2004’s international hit “Gasolina,” Daddy Yankee was the first reggaeton artist to enter the Billboard Hot 100, which exposed the genre from the island of Puerto Rico to a global audience – an unthinkable feat at one time. where the music video Total live demand ranking on MTV mattered, and dial-up internet was the only way to stream music at the time. Daddy Yankee’s pervasive influence as the “King of Reggaetón” has become evident after three decades of music industry records, having been cited as a major influence by popular artists like Bad Bunny, as well as being recently recognized by the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. with the 2022 “Legend” award for his creative and philanthropic achievements.

Saturday August 27

CatVideoFest
Like many of you, we still spend an unhealthy amount of time each day browsing through daily news and various content, numb. Every time we put the phone down, there’s the sting of a little more wasted life. That being said, those feelings never arise when we spend blissful hours watching homemade content about completely manic pet cats. This is the first-rate quality time. To that end, the heroic programmers at CVF have once again compiled a hit reel of the best of these cat videos – felines acting cute, evil, goofy with humor, or being exposed as aliens trying to pass themselves off as pets – which we can watch on the big screen as civilized humans. Proceeds benefit Pet Rescue by Judy. Perfect. 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland, enzian.org, $12. — MM

Donzii
Miami post-punk berserkers Donzii return to Uncle Lou’s favorite local spot this weekend, and it promises to be wild. The trio presents a tropical and moist version of the icy and dark theatricality of a Siouxsie and the Banshees, Xmal Deutschland or the Slits. Live, Donzii may indulge in their fair share of gothic makeup and performance art theater, but they display an unconscious power and conviction in their performances. Donzii brings fascinating Floridian hues to the usually austere, slate gray post-punk musical template. And whether it’s opening for New Order or playing at a dive bar, this is a band that leaves it all on the floor. Handpicked local support is offered by Bacon Grease, Fond and Leatherette. Wow, welcome back. 8 p.m., Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Room, 1016 N. Mills Ave., eventbrite.com, $10. — MM

Sunday August 28

PJ Morton
PJ Morton is humble, not haughty; gentle, not manic. The only time he makes noise is when he’s on stage, which sets him apart from his peers in the music world. But his steady and consistent productivity has quietly turned this dedicated family man into a legit playa in the industry. Born in New Orleans, Morton extended his roots to the Southeast, attending St. Augustine High School and Morehouse College. By the time he settled in New Orleans, he had already traveled the world with Maroon 5, for whom he provided keyboards and backing vocals on their last four albums. Morton is a four-time Grammy Award winner, with those awards being presented four years in a row, a rare feat. If Morton was a baseball player, that would put him in the running for the Hall of Fame. As a musician, the same standard applies. 7 p.m., House of Blues, Disney Springs, houseofblues.com, $34.50 — SheltonHull
