Sixty six days... we're counting them all down to the first ever Orion Music + More festival in Atlantic City, NJ on June 23 and 24. As promised, we're busy brain-storming, planning, and coming up with cool bands and activities to add to the weekend's festivities. This week we're excited to announce that we've heard your demands of "tell us who's playing when" and have posted the full schedule on the Orion Music + More site AND single day tickets are now available, so if you can't hang with us for the entire weekend we understand (sort of!)... they are available here.
If you've been following along, you know that we plan to perform The Black Album in its entirety one night (we're big on that anniversary thing right now - it's been 20 years!), and Ride The Lightning in its entirety the other, so for your planning purposes RTL will be on Saturday, June 23 with The Black Album up the next night, Sunday, June 24. We've added several new bands and comedians to the line-up; Ghost, The Black Dahlia Murder, Letlive, Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson, Charred Walls of the Damned, and Shuli Egar are all on board and you'll see that we still have a few open spots to fill, so more to come.
On the "other cool activities" front, you may have already seen that James will be hosting a custom car and motorcycle show, our friends from Billabong will be on site with the "All Out Air Assault" surfing exposition, "Ktulu's Rock ‘N' Roll Emporium," a rock and roll market, will be set up, and just added is "Kirk's Crypt," a showcase of Kirk's passion for all things horror - vintage film posters, movie props, collectables and more . . . all hosted by The Ripper himself.
Keep watching... we have more performers and fun activities still on the drawing board.
