Florianópolis: General Lee

Let's ro-ock! I haven't mentioned it yet, but my favorite music style is power metal. Here, in Brazil, there are some specific music styles that I simply hate, but these songs are everywhere. Rock, heavy metal and similar styles are not very common among the young Brazilian population. However for people like me there are places like General Lee.

General Lee - Redneck Rock is a rock n' roll pub, there you can listen to good music and eat. Normally, bands playing covers. In the website they explain their inspiration, being the movie The Dukes of Hazzard (I've never heard of this movie before).

The day I went there, the band Pink Revolver was playing. This band is formed by 4 girls that perform covers, for example The White Stripes, Led Zeppelin, The Cranberries, AC/DC. When I looked at General Lee's website I noticed that most of the bands play similar songs. Also on the website you can check the bands that are going to play each week.

The place is really, really, really small and it was clear that most of the public that day were related somehow with the band members. To get inside and watch the gig I paid R$ 18,00 (approx. US$ 5.57).

General Lee for what I've read is famous for their pulled pork sandwich and for serving beer in jars, which I didn't try. I just ate the fries. The prices are normal for places like this, for the fries I paid R$ 15,00 (approx. US$ 4.64) and you can buy a pilsen beer jar (2 liters) for R$ 38,00 (approx. US$ 11.76).
