Austin’s Long Time Learning Secrets Dance Party Spawns World Cafe: Next Band Orthy

March 10,2014 - The Austin band Orthy are our World Cafe: Next band for our Sense of Place visit to Austin. We picked Orthy, whose two EPs touch on Electronic Dance Music, to illustrate the breadth of the music scene in Austin. The inspiration for Ian Orth, who is at the heart of this band, is his ongoing weekly dance party Learning Secrets.
He established Learning Secrets to turn rock fans on to dance music and vice versa. The full band Orthy plays live, sharing music from their latest EP E.M.I.L.Y.
