Local Spins Live: The Gorgeous Oranges

October 3, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Local Spins Wednesdays is tickled to present the SpeakEZ Lounge debut of The Gorgeous Oranges, a psychedelic rock band based in Grand Rapids. Originally dubbed Wala Gum, the band was started as a recording project by Sean Stynes and elevated by founding members Curtis Kuipers and Dan Julian. The band’s latest album,
“Not Today Satan,” continues the band’s experimental approach to home recording and production with a new batch of eclectic sounds and songs. The Gorgeous Oranges combine hard-hitting psychedelic moments with melodic songwriting that weaves in and out of pop sensibilities. Major influences include: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood, Tame Impala, Neutral Milk Hotel, and The Beatles.

Singer-songwriter RJ Nordlund, who recently moved back to West Michigan, will open the show.

Local Spins Wednesdays are presented by Local Spins, SpeakEZ Lounge, Perrin Brewing Company and WYCE, with Michigan beer specials on tap and free parking in the Sixth Street Park lot a block to the north on Monroe Avenue NW.
