Win Orson Tickets...

Published on February 16th 2006.

Meet Music’s next big thing: Orson. Hotly tipped to be huge, the five quirky Californians are playing a teeny tiny gig in Manchester this month – a rare chance to catch a band on their way up to the dizzy heights of the MEN.

After already making quite a name for themselves after their single ‘No Tomorrow’ became Apple’s most downloaded ‘iTune of the Week’ in their history, Orson will be touring the UK this month, stopping off in Manchester to play at the Academy 3 this Sunday. And yep, you’ve guessed it, we have a pair of tickets to give away!

When Radio 1 played No Tomorrow, they hailed Orson as “the missing link between The Rolling Stones and The Scissor Sisters”, and when the band made their live UK debut right here in Manchester at last year’s In The City event, they were immediately snapped up by Universal records.

With influences as broad and varied as Led Zeppelin, The Flaming Lips, Beck and Bjork, lead singer and songwriter Jason sums up Orson’s sound like this: “We play guitar rock but we have that rump-shaking quality to our rhythm section, like an R&B feel. When you listen to Led Zeppelin, for all their rockin’, they made you want to dance. And that’s what we’re aiming for. It’s great to see people dancing at a rock and roll show”.

If you want to see the band before they become big, get down to Manchester Academy 3 on Sunday 19th February. Or to be in with a chance of winning tickets to the gig, fill in your details below!
