Orgy

When: Mon., Aug. 20, 7 p.m.-12 a.m. 2018

Led by 9-foot-tall Hot Topic model Jay Gordon, Orgy rose to prominence on their Family Values Tour-approved cover of New Order’s “Blue Monday.” Considering Gordon is the single original member, the outfit could consider going Mach-2 and renaming the band New Orgy.  Also on the bill and definitely falling onto the nu-metal end of the hard-rock spectrum, Austin’s Motograter do the genre better than most. While it’s definitely not the coolest style of hard rock right now, after being overdone in the late ’90s and early aughts, Motograter manage to add some interesting elements and dynamics to the genre, throwing in unexpected transitions, vocal harmonies and double-bass to keep shit changing up throughout their songs.

Price: $15-$20
