Though The Orange Peel first got its name in 1974, it sat vacant for many years before it was reborn into the iconic venue we know and love today. After a stint as an auto parts warehouse, the club reopened on Oct. 25, 2002. Since then, it has been home to over 3,000 shows, including performances by legendary artists like:
- Bob Dylan
- Childish Gambino
- The Flaming Lips
- Cyndi Lauper
- Wanda Jackson
Want to be a part of the birthday bash? The club will host a weekend of concerts from Fri., Oct. 28-Sat., Oct. 29. Outkast founding member + Atlanta emcee Big Boi will kick off the celebration the first night. The following evening, the club will host the Grammy-award winning group Old Crow Medicine Show.
Bonus: If you want access to all the fun, you can buy the VIP package which includes a free t-shirt, poster, and access to the pre-party.
