The Orwells, Twin Peaks at Star Theater in Portland, OR (March 26, 2014)
The all ages show at Star Theater on Wednesday provided the perfect treat for the young and the restless during their spring break. The triple bill with Criminal Hygiene, Twin Peaks, and the headliners, The Orwells, were the perfect ingredients for one raucous indie rock wingding. Copious usage of the four-letter-word from The Orwells’ frontman, Mario Cuomo, tripled when a crowd surfer was kicked out. Perhaps his indignation repressed further disciplinary actions from the staff as the night escalated with a mosh pit, hysterical screams, cigarette smoking, gyrating on the stage floor, human water fountain, and stage diving – all the the unruliness that made a one helluva of gratifying event.
