Welcome to Swamp Sounds

Welcome to Swamp Sounds, a new blog focused around the Gainesville music scene.

My name is Gabrielle Calise. I’m a second year Journalism student at the University of Florida and I love live music.

Each week I’ll be highlighting local and traveling bands by posting original photographs, reviews and more. I’ll also be posting playlists, Q&A’s and tips for navigating the Gainesville music scene. From sweaty, grimy shows at DIY venues to on-campus performances at UF to coverage of annual punk rock festival The Fest, I’ll be bringing you the best that the Swamp has to offer.

Thank you for coming on this journey with me. I’m excited to highlight all of the great music we have here in town.

Any suggestions for content? Have comments, questions, or thoughts you’d like to share? Feel free to email me at gcalise@ufl.edu or shoot me a tweet at @gabriellecalise.
