The band, that is!

Sunday, February 26
Mainroom / 7:30 pm / 18+
$15

First-Avenue event link

Quote:
The reactivated ORGY, the "death pop" band from Bakersfield, California, will embark on a U.S. tour next week. The trek is scheduled to kick off on February 10 in Santa Ana, California and is expected to wrap on March 21 in Hollywood. Joining vocalist and sole remaining original member Jay Gordon in ORGY's new lineup are Carlton Bost (DEADSY, THE DREAMING, LUNARCLICK) on guitar, Ashburn Miller (DEADSY) on guitar, Nic Speck (RUN RUN RUN) on bass and Jamie Miller (SNOT, THE START) on drums.

Orgy was formed in 1996 by vocalist Jay Gordon and guitarist Ryan Shuck. Bassist Paige Haley, guitarist Amir Derakh, and drummer Bobby Hewitt soon completed the line-up. Derakh had previously gained some fame in the 1980s metal band Rough Cutt, and Hewitt was a former member of Electric Love Hogs. Gordon and Derakh were also experienced producers, having produced Coal Chamber's self-titled CD.


No opening acts listed; not sure if that means there won't BE any, or if it's "TBD".
It's often worrisome when the band lineup changes radically, but how can you go wrong with two ex-Deadsy members to replace them??

O.o

Carton Bost and Jamie Miler???? That is AWSOME. I'm a huge fan of both The Dreaming and theSTART. And I did really enjoy Orgy back in the day. But it's the same day as Emilie Autumn :\ What's a girl to do?

So I went searching the internet for Orgy videos...
but I got kinda sidetracked...
and then I lost interest...
a couple hours later I was interested again...
but I still have no idea if they ever released any music videos.
:P :lol:

There's an Orgyvideos user on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/user/Orgyvideos?feature=watch

I definitely remember the video for Stitches. They played it on MTV. Imagine that! They also had a video for Blue Monday that I remember less well and apparently for Fiction (Dreams in Digital).

It's really a bad sign to be a one-hit wonder where that hit is a cover. And that's what Orgy was. They may have had some good original songs, some of which may have been popular in the scene, but they still shouldn't have allowed themselves to get known to the world at large for just a cover.

I dunno, I'm pretty sure everyone's heard "Stitches", "Opticon", and "Fiction (Dreams in Digital)", so although "Blue Monday" is still their biggest hit (and I agree it's kinda sad that it's a cover), I wouldn't go as far as calling them a "1-hit wonder".

And if you've never heard of Deadsy:


Not really "goth", not really "industrial", just kinda... I dunno, in the same vein as Newlydeads, Stabbing Westward, etc.

Apparently I'm just an emo tween girl with a beard, since I like all these boy bands...

I loved the first Orgy and Deadsy albums!!! Classic in my eyes!! A few years ago I found the 2nd Deadsy album on amazon marketplace so i bought it for like $20. It was Awful!!! Gone were the synths and it was more or less a metal album. I think I even had the second Orgy Cd and that was good but I just can't see myself going to this show.

Maybe in the scene. I wasn't in the scene back then. I never heard anything but Blue Monday.

Yup! Good show; they played all my faves! The metal opener was a no-show (no loss, imho) so it was just One-Eyed Doll and Orgy. Turnout was pretty sad (for a mainroom show); I'm pretty sure the headcount didn't exceed 150.

Anybody go to Emilie Autumn instead? How did that fare?

Didn't make it out to the Triple Rock. I drove back from Milwaukee on Sunday and went to two shows there over the weekend, so by Sunday night I was out of gas. I must be getting old.

You can stream/download a gig from this tour here:
http://gigstre.am/concerts/emilie-autumn/

The price isn't listed on the page until you create an account. I asked about it and suggested they do so via Twitter and got this response:

"It is 5.99 u get a HD desktop version as well as a version 4 your mobile device"

I can't believe I missed this show. I really like that band and would have enjoyed seeing that show very much. Thanks for the review of it though!

Maybe it was because you were to busy congratulating yourself for imaginary victories on a message board
And looking in the mirror

Oh don't get all crabby Rock just because I put you in your place on some post that I've already forgotten about. You don't get hit with the brunt of my vitrol so consider yourself lucky. I only take issue with what you write occasionally and even then its a pretty measured responds because I like you. Put yourself in the shoes of some of the pathetic douchewad losers on this message board that get regularily skewered by me. Those poor sods are defenseless against my superior wit and charm!

As for missing the Orgy show because I was looking in the mirror, I don't think that has anything to do with it. Everybody that goes to an Orgy show looks in the mirror a lot, yet somehow even those folks made it. They may have even set up extra mirrors at the venue to accomodate the fans if they were smart. ;)
