Ah, the fall season…..all that means for us Floridians is that the weather is only slightly less miserable than the rest of the year. But there is one more perk to the season and that’s our annual Horror Trash party and costume party. Now if youre from this area, I’m sure you already know that we throw one hell of a party. But this year we are kicking it up a notch higher than the rest because we are giving away $500 CASH to the best costume! Nowhere in hell will you find that anywhere else! 50 dollar bar tab goes to second place and $25 to third. How do you like them apples?!
We are also offering live music from Luxury Mane and Geri X! So make sure you make this your creepy destination!
This month, we are keeping with tradition, and providing an excellent lineup of live music for you to enjoy. I mean, why break the streak right? You know Orbit 19 is the best place in the area to find new, upcoming live music, as well as providing a venue for more established acts and bands. And this month is no different. Check it out…

From right up the road in New Port Richey comes Figments, a Noise Rock/Art Rock/Soul-based band. Put it this way: if you took James Brown, Vagabond Swing, Amy Winehouse, Nirvana, The Dead Milkmen, of Montreal, Parliament, and Marvin Gaye and threw them all into a blender, poured the contents into a tall glass, and garnished with a slice of on-stage antics and a be-costumed spectacle, you’d get Figments. Stop on in and check out a show that you just have to see with your own eyes.

Orbit 19 is proud to present two of our favorite local acts, both on one incredible night.
First up is Tampa’s Samurai Shotgun. If you like The Roots, The Mars Volta, N*E*R*D, Incubus, or heck, just good hip hop, you will love these guys. Guitars, bass, drums, keys, and turntable are all represented here. These guys are a fantastic mashup of musical genres.
Rounding out the night will be Fla All Day. From right down the road in Tarpon Springs, this hip hop act is quickly gaining lots of local buzz and are becoming an Orbit 19 favorite. Heavily influenced by 90’s hip hop and rap, Fla All Day prides itself on honoring the past while blazing into new territory with their unique in-house recording process, striving to create new soundscapes
Friday, August 23 –
St. Pete’s own Trigger City Trio comes up this way to bring their funky rock jams straight to you. Equally comfortable performing rock, blues, funk and soul their specialty is creating unique twists on familiar songs and writing catchy originals that defy conventional genre lines. Despite having influences spanning many decades, TCT’s music always sounds fresh and never bland or derivative. These guys make a lot of noise for a three piece.
Also appearing will be The Party Machine. Normally the Machine hangs out on Mondays for open mic night with Stick Martin, but for this very special occasion, the acoustic duo will venture out. They’re probably going to tone down the antics for this one, but no one ever knows what those boys are gonna do.
So there you have it. Another great lineup of shows in August at Orbit 19. We’ll keep lining up the great live shows, amazing cocktails, and great atmosphere, and you keep coming in and hanging out with us. Deal?
