Last night due to a random urge, we decided to go hang out at Mad Anthony's, a tiny brewery on the edge of downtown Fort Wayne. When we got there, we noticed a poster hanging on the door announcing live music from The Orange Opera (Fort Wayne), Luego (somewhere in N.C.) and Pepi Ginsberg (Brooklyn, NY).
If you live in the Fort Wayne vicinity and have never seen The Orange Opera perform, it is a must. These guys put on a great show and their music is catchy.
From their website:
The Orange Opera channels a classic vibe, enriched with some stellar signposts of early ‘70s rock, driven by uncanny songcraft. This combo melds modern energy with vintage vibe to produce the kind of distinctive, catchy, smart and infectious sound that you recognize immediately: it simply belongs in your ears. Imagine bits of Beatles and Badfinger melodic magic mingling with ELO and Wilco, and you’ve barely scratched the surface.
They're the kind of band that makes you think there may be hope for the Fort Wayne music scene afterall...
