Andrea Knight has been a vital force and a familiar face in the Central Florida underground for many years. Stepping out from behind her camera after documenting countless shows, Knight began making improvised music as Bacon Grease, with just her voice and a guitar, and at times, whomever could be coaxed into playing alongside her. Knight soon began reinventing and expanding her sound, with a constantly shifting array of samplers, drum machines and synths, and yet the guiding principle always remained the same: each set would be improvised and built note-by-note in front of an audience. Seeing Knight as Bacon Grease live is a thrilling experience, with seemingly tentative beeps and pulses suddenly exploding into kaleidoscopic webs of danceable electronics. Knight mixes dissonant and dreamlike sounds like few can in Orlando. After a stint as one-half of dark electronic performance artists Shania Pain, Knight took a year off before returning to Bacon Grease fully revitalized in 2018. Since then, Knight has been on a creative roll: playing International Noise Conference in Miami and Savage Weekend in Chapel Hill, releasing an album on local imprint Popnihil, and opening locally for the likes of Martin Atkins and Grun Wasser.
