Outlaw cowboy Orville Peck croons about love and loss from the badlands of North America. The resulting sound is entirely his own - taking the listener down dusty rose-colored desert highways; through a world where worn out gamblers, road-dogs, and lovesick hustlers drift in and out of his masked gaze. “Big Sky,” his first single, is a campfire lullaby of Orville’s past lovers. 
Orville Peck’s music has been featured in publications like Nylon, i-D, Vice, The Needle Drop, and Office, as well as numerous Apple Music and Spotify playlists. 
May 30, Doors - 7:15pm / Show - 8:00pm – 11pm

Inspired by true events and based on the 1992 film of the same name, Newsies is an exciting musical  adaptation of the Newsboys’ Strike of 1899.
