After tearing apart Underground Arts in early November, California garage-rockers The Orwells announced plans to head out on a massive 2017 European and United States tour, poised to tackle Union Transfer on May 26th.

Although supporting artists are yet to be announced, the band has enough dance-able basement tracks to get the partying adolescent out of all of us.

Come help Hardwork Movement celebrate and get a taste of their mixtape Draft Night at their last show of 2016 in Fishtown. Brooklyn-bred ...
