Club Reports: Silly Grape, Vinyl Arts Bar, Bikkuri Lounge

Beginning my Friday night at The Silly Grape in Maitland.
DJ Vitamin C (USA) on stage playing House music.
Great way to start off the weekend!
Only about 10 people in the place but with its location along Keller Road among office buildings, this is mostly a lunch and happy hour place that clears out by 8PM.
Vinyl Arts Bar and Sandwich Bar compete as Orlando venues for great House music presented by touring international DJ's.
Arrived to find that DJ Mahony (RO) had just taken over.
Small club but crowded dance floor!
Coming here fairly often lately, I'm starting to recognize some of the regulars including many that used to populate the short-lived Sound Bar.
Mahony is based in Bucharest.
House music is international and in March alone we've seen Eastern European DJ's in here from Romania, Bulgaria & Croatia!
 Great music! And the legendary DJ Roland Clark (USA) plays here tonight! CANCELLED

Last Friday of the month usually means "Lost In Trancelation" (LIT) at Bikkuri Lounge!
DJ Suzy Solar (USA) on the decks when I arrived!
With DJ UCast (BY) taking over a few minutes later.
For some reason everyone was initially standing around 20ft back from the booth.....except one!
Smaller crowd than we typically see for LIT but we are 1-week post-Miami!
His Trance set included some "138", the "harder, faster" stuff!
Spotted on the patio: DJ Robb Blak (USA) with Harley.
Spotted at the ticket booth: Sage Sappho with Eddie.
Spotted on the dance floor: Sandy, Allison, Jeremy, Alli & Amanda
And the DJ said, "Let there be light"!
Speaking of Eastern Europe, UCast is based in Minsk, Belarus!
Upcoming LIT events include Psytrance specialist Airwave (B) on April 28th and Sean Tyas (CH) on May 12th!
Small crowd but a good time was had by all!
