Artist Spotlight: The Orwells at Cat's Cradle

In the week leading up to playing at Bonnaroo Music Festival and embarking on a European tour later this summer, the Cat's Cradle welcomes The Orwells on Tuesday, June 6.

Hailing from Elmhurst, Illinois, these five rockers have been generating a lot of excitement with the release of their third studio album, Terrible Human Beings. The band had not released an album since 2014 after giving an unforgettable performance as guests on The Late Show with David Letterman.

As one might expect, the band has evolved in their sound, but recognizes it is their wild and theatrical performances that have captivated their audiences over the years.  The band is making a point to focus on how they want to be percieved as artists moving forward, as band member Matt O'Keefe ackowledged in a recent Chicago Tribune article,"we don't always want it to be about what we are doing physically on stage, but more about the lyrics or the guitar part." This is clearly evident in the album's final song, "Double Feature." When asked about the lengthy and clever ending to the album, Henry Brinner explained the intentions of the last song to Billboard, "I think that the last song has to be epic."  Joined by brother Grant Brinner, Dominic Corso, and Mario Cuomo, the Cat's Cradle is certain to be filled with rock and roll energy next Tuesday.  Joining the band will be another Chicago-based  rock band, The Walters.

Tickets for the show are available through the Cat´s Cradle event page and the show will begin at 8pm. Check out a preview of The Orwells' live performance of another track of their new album, "Black Francis."
