Mustard and tomato beer, a MormonorteÃ±o dance-a-thon, one skins-jockey down and three shows to go…Orangerâ€™s a cominâ€™ home
Add to that: one fractured ankle, trampled bits of guitar and rock-star innards, a dreadlocked poodle among beavers, miles and miles of classic rock road tracks, and youâ€™ve got yourself a little slice of life on the road withÂ Oranger and theÂ Posies this past month.Â
For more complete details, check out the all-too-graphic and ever-more-too-entertaining Oranger tourÂ blog. And if you happen to find yourself in what the locals like to call Frisco this weekend, loosen them chastity belt straps and hit upÂ The Independent for the way-official, â€œNew Comes and Goesâ€ cd release party.
On anÂ Oranger note, you have only a few days left to compete for the Oranger Prize Pack. Steeplechase, Stratego and bean-counting smarts are not the key to winningâ€”just filling out the entry form and a little luck. Drop your name in theÂ basket by October 20th.Â
Troubled Hubble bids farewell to a packed house
Troubled Hubble finished a frenetic six-year run on September 29th at Schubaâ€™s in Chicago. The bandâ€™s last show ever was a sold-out, 75-minute romp and circumstance through memories, melancholy and the infinite adrenaline. From the opening and positively retrospective â€œ14,000 Things To Be Happy Aboutâ€ to the finale, neâ€™er a dry eye in the house, â€œWhat We Do,â€ Troubled Hubble proved for one last time why they have earned a reputation as one of Chicagoâ€™s most tenacious and adored bands. Friends, family and fans cheered and shed the occasional tear for a band that has truly worked for, deserved, and relished all the love and respect it has received.Â
Word has it that folks from more than ten states attended the final show. If you werenâ€™t one of those in attendance, you can still catch the stellar performance onÂ eMusicLive.
