We've put a killer lineup together for your entertainment including The Azalea Project is a new-ish band who have been getting a lot of local buzz for their dreamy rock sound with blues influences. We've also got Austin-based indie band Brandon Callies Band and the always weird and wonderful steampunk rockers Marquis of Vaudeville. With your $15 admission you get a copy of the new album, but you'll also have the chance to purchase other ORANGE swag including our ever-popular all seeing eye t-shirt and a limited edition hand silk screened poster designed for THE ORANGE by popular Dallas artist Nevada Hill. These are big 18x24 posters perfect for display or framing and they'll be limited to 25 hand numbered prints. You won't want to miss out on this one.

WIN A THING

Lastly, for those of you who follow us on our Facebook page you've seen the big mural lead singer Scott and tambourine player Melissa painted on the wall of the Curtain Club this past week. They spent two days working on the mural and in celebration we're doing a contest. The rules are simple: (1) Take a picture of yourself with our Curtain Club mural. A selfie is cool too. (2) Tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (or all 3 if you're feeling saucy) (3) We'll review them and pick a winner and runner up April 25, 2015. That's two weeks from the date of the Sharing Vitamins album release show. Feel free to be as creative, odd, cute, sexy, or weird as you'd like. The winner gets a one of the 18x24 hand numbered poster prints by Nevada Hill and an ORANGE t-shirt and the runner up wins a t-shirt. All entries will be display on our Facebook and Twitter pages for other ORANGE fans to see. See everyone SATURDAY NIGHT! -- ORANGE HQ

Sharing Vitamins Coming April 11

Sharing Vitamins cover

Well everyone, it's been over 3-years in the making, but we're finally releasing our first LP album, Sharing Vitamins. This 12 song album was recorded analog on reel to reel tape with Grammy winning producer Eric Delegard. It was then sent to Tom Baker in sunny California for final mastering. The result (we believe) is one of the best rock records of all time. Of course, we could be a little biased. I guess you'll just have to buy the album and decide for yourself. Speaking of buying the album, your first chance to get your hands on it will be at our album release show at the Curtain Club in Dallas, TX on April 11, 2015. The show costs $15 and includes a copy of Sharing Vitamins. For those of you who live out of state or simply won't be able to join us that night, you will be able to buy the album here on THE ORANGE website. In fact, our hope is to start taking pre-orders by next week. We'll keep you posted. ** Also, don't forget we'll be at the SXSW Music Conference this week. We'll be playing two showcases -- one Friday afternoon (3/20) and one Saturday night (3/21), so come rock out with us. All our dates, times, and venues are on our tour page. That's it for now. We'll post again soon with more information and news about Sharing Vitamins. Get excited. I know we are. -- ORANGE HQ
