Joy Orbison
Joy Orbison

UK producer/DJ Peter O'Grady, aka Joy Orbison, made his U.S. debut at Justin Carter & Eamon Harkin's 'Mister Saturday Night' party at 12-Turn-13 in Clinton Hill on Saturday night (4/9). Check out a video from the appearance below.

If you missed it, you have one more shot to catch O'Grady in NYC before he continues on towards Coachella. Joy Orbison plays Deep Space at Cielo with Francois K tonight (4/11). He then flies west for a pre-Coachella show in San Francisco, Coachella, and a post-Cochaella HARD LA event where he shares a bill with Pearson Sound / Ramadanman, Annie Mac, & Flinch on 4/19.

Speaking of HARD, the festival is heading to the high seas in 2012. Much like Jam Cruise (whose people are involved in this), and Bruise Cruise (whose people are not), HARD Cruise 2012 is coming. It sails from Florida in January, and that's about all the details they've released at the moment. Stay tuned for lineups, pricing, etc.

All Joy Orbison dates and stuff below...

Can't see a thing on the video and the tune is weak weak weak. Think I'll wait for Bombay Dub @ Francois K's next soiree.

He actually is shortening his name to Joy O, presumably to avoid getting sued.

One thing is for sure, on that HARD Cruise everyone will be cavorting around with wild abandon.

i can't believe you're talking about his moniker like he's some new random figure. anybody who talks about that shit is ignorant and only listens to best coast

I think he should change his name to Billie Nelson.

Posted by The Real Real Yup. PERIOD | April 11, 2011 4:54 PM

I think a great name would be "The joy of mashing chickpeas"

All these cruises sound fun... But I'm waiting for the grandad of them all, the Hummus Cruise on board the S.S. Chickpea with Captain Tahini steering the ship up and down the east river going back and forth from the Williamsburg waterfront and the east village.
