EXHIBITION: Figurehead: Music & Mayhem in Orlando’s Underground


The Orange County Regional History Center has organized a new special exhibition titled Figurehead: Music & Mayhem in Orlando’s Underground.

Between 1985 and 2001, the Orlando concert promoter “Figurehead” invigorated the musical landscape in Central Florida. “Figurehead: Music & Mayhem in Orlando’s Underground” tells the story of how the company helped grow the local scene with a focus on underground rock music and the club circuit. Utilizing the extensive Figurehead archive, now part of the Orange County Regional History Center’s permanent collection, the exhibition showcases an impressive display of eye-catching and jaw-dropping concert posters that capture the energy and drive of this era. Musical acts featured include Black Flag, Jonathan Richman, and Drivin’ ‘N’ Cryin’, hometown favorites Seven Mary Three and Rob Thomas, and many more. “Figurehead: Music & Mayhem in Orlando’s Underground” provides a glimpse into what made this time in the Orlando area so memorable – the bands and the clubs, the community and the chaos.

This exhibition and related programming are funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Historical Society of Central Florida.
