2012 Concerts

Way over 100 shows in 2012- a personal record!

ORGY at the CANYON CLUB 12/8/2012

This show absolutely kicked ass and was one of the best shows of the year, for sure.     The Canyon had a comedy night earlier in the evening (headlined by Dana Carvey), so the doors for this concert didn’t open until after 10:00PM.   The opener played and then Orgy came on at 11:30.   It’s actually a perfect start time for a killer band on a Saturday night.

Orgy was one of the big alternative metal bands to come around in the late 90s.  Bands like Orgy, Deadsy and Julien-K all make some really fantastic music.

The only original member left is Jay Gordon.   Amir Derakh  and Ryan Shuck are now in Julien-K.   They’re an awesome band, but Orgy easily topped their last few performances.   The new guitarists are Carlton Bost (who is also in Berlin with Terri Nunn and also used to be in Deadsy) and Nic Speck and they really rocked it.

Ashburn Miller, also from Deadsy, was great on the bass and Jamie Miller completely jammed on the drums.  There is not a weak link in this band.

From the first song until the last note of the set, Orgy absolutely nailed it. They sounded even better live than on their records. It rocked harder and  was a downright fierce performance.   They placed a bunch of tunes, including Dissention, Suckerface, 107, Fiction (Dreams In Digital), Opticon and many more.

Everything sounded great.  From the new music to the older favorites, it was  a completely solid performance.  Crushing.

And the short, incredible set was rounded out with Blue Monday  – complete with audience participation and a Dead or Alive outro.

Jay Gordon and band really took care of business.       Excellent.
