Vernon Club hosting The Orwells and local band Beyond Doubt Friday

By BRADEN LAMMERS

Five 17-year-olds will be rolling into Louisville Friday night, but this isn’t part of some high school battle of the bands show.

Chicago-based The Orwells will be playing at the Vernon Club in Louisville en route to South by Southwest and their first national tour.

Named as one of MTV’s “Most Criminally Overlooked Artists of 2012” the punk-pop group will be joined by The Kingston Springs, The Formallites, locally-based Beyond Doubt and The Vagrants.542847_10150298855509980_1797970252_n

Rough around the edges, The Orwells have a frenetic, crunchy, punk sound reminiscent of early Arctic Monkey, but they are a grimier, American version.

No doubt still growing as musicians The Orwells sing about what they know on their debut album “Remember When.” This shouldn’t dissuade you from getting in on the ground floor with this punk five-piece.

The Vernon Club is located at 1575 Story Ave. in Louisville. Tickets to the show are $10 and doors open at 7 p.m.
