It was 24 years ago that Orgy formed right here in Los Angeles. It was the mid-1990s, and nu-metal was the hip new thing for lovers of music on the heavier end of the spectrum. Simultaneously, industrial-tinged metal bands with a penchant for the experimental, such as Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails and Fear Factory, were at their commercial zenith. Orgy, led by Jay Gordon, married those two things together seamlessly and consequently found themselves signed to Korn’s Elementree Records. The lineup has changed massively since then, with only Gordon still there (the rest are in Julien-K), but the band still puts on a great live show. 

Orgy plays with BI-AS, Dark Entries, Soldiers of Solace, Forrest Hills and No Aspiring Newbies at 6 p.m. on Friday, August 9 at the Whisky A Go Go.
