Orenda Records (orendarecords.com) celebrates three years of creative underground music with an epic three-part concert and art installation at Los Angeles’s finest creative music venue, bluewhale. Curated by Daniel Rosenboom and Eron Rauch, Orenda Records seeks to represent and provoke adventurous work from the LA musical community and beyond, and this anniversary show represents both new directions and the label’s core. Label newcomers Snow Nerds kick off the festivities. Fiery bi-coastal electro-jazz-rock outfit, DR. MiNT, then celebrate the vinyl release of their epic new album, Voices In The Void. For a grand finale, label founder Daniel Rosenboom leads the Orenda Anniversary Orchestra, featuring many of Orenda Records’ visionary band-leaders and musicians.
