Gainesville Singer/Song Writer Returns to the Swamp for EP Release Party

Looking for a place where you can let loose this week?

Head to
1982 Thursday (Jan. 27) night for singer/songwriter Kellen Malloy’s EP Release party. Let your hair down and jam to the relaxed rhythms of acoustic guitar mixed with percussion, harmonica, and original, feel-good lyrics, all with the general theme of, you guessed it, letting loose.

Doors open at 9 pm, with Malloy taking the stage around midnight after another local act with a true one-man-band performance showcasing his newest work.

"I've always wanted to shock people when they come to see me live,” Malloy said. “Just playing the guitar and singing wasn't enough for me, I really want people to leave and feel like they saw something fresh.”

Malloy, a former University of Florida and Santa Fe College student, became famous for his musical talents as a freshman living in Graham Hall at UF. His ability to transform vulgar rap songs into music that carried a different tune with his “rap gone acoustic” covers landed him a gig as a 2005 Gator Growl performer, where he made his public debut in front of 50,000 people.

Doors open at 9 pm Thursday, and there’s a $6 cover.
