House of Blues Orlando October 2022 Lineup
Here’s who you can catch at the House of Blues in October 2022.
A R I Z O N A
The month will kick off with electropop band A R I Z O N A. Their “Album Three Coming Soon Tour” comes to Orlando on Saturday, October 1, at 8 p.m.
Musicians Zachary Charles, Nathan Esquite, and David Labuguen all grew up in New Jersey but met in Massachusetts as Emerson and Berklee students. They formed A R I Z O N A in 2015. In case you’re wondering, the northeastern band’s name does not come from the southwestern state but from the iced tea brand.
The band soon started promoting their music online. By 2016, they had a contract with Atlantic Records.
As the tour’s name suggests, they’ve released two studio albums — 2017’s Gallery and 2019’s Asylum — and have another on the way. A R I Z O N A’s debut single, “I Was Wrong,” reached No. 35 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Their 2019 song “Nostalgic” reached No. 34 on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart.
Tickets to A R I Z O N A’s House of Blues show start at $32.50.
The War on Drugs
On Tuesday, October 4, at 8 p.m., the War on Drugs will hit the House of Blues stage. Tickets for the “I Don’t Live Here Anymore Tour” start at $44.50.
In 2003, singer Adam Granduciel and guitarist Kurt Vile met at a Philadelphia house party and bonded over their love of Bob Dylan. The two formed the War on Drugs in 2005 and in 2007 released their first EP, Barrel of Batteries. Their modern take on heartland rock impressed the execs at indie label Secretly Canadian, who soon signed the band.
The War on Drugs released their first LP, Wagonwheel Blues, in 2008. Later that year, Vile left to pursue a solo career.
The band continued to record without Vile. The War on Drugs has released five albums, including 2018’s A Deeper Understanding, which won a Grammy for Best Rock Album. The band’s latest LP, I Don’t Live Here Anymore, came out in 2021. The title track, which features vocals from indie rock duo Lucius, reached No. 1 on the Adult Alternative Airplay chart.
The House of Blues Orlando will welcome Canadian surf rockers Peach Pit on Thursday, October 6, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $29.50.
High school friends Neil Smith and Chris Vanderkooy formed the band in 2014. They soon invited Peter Wilton and Mikey Pascuzzi to join them. Peach Pit released their first EP, Sweet FA, in 2016.
The EP’s melancholy lyrics and bouncy melodies impressed a popular Youtuber, who shared their self-titled single on her channel, TheLazylazyme.
“Peach Pit” the song, and Peach Pit the band, went viral worldwide. Since then, the band has released three LPs. Their latest one, From 2 to 3, came out in March 2022. The album contains the singles “Look Out!” and “Vickie.”
Peach Pit has also performed at Bonnaroo, Shaky Knees, and the CBC Music Festival.
Alternative R&B singer Sabrina Claudio will play the House of Blues Orlando on Friday, October 21, at 8 p.m. Tickets for the “Based On a Feeling Tour” start at $32.50.
Claudio grew up in South Florida listening to ‘90s R&B icons like Mariah Carey and Destiny’s Child. Her parents bought her a microphone and camera for her 14th birthday, and she started sharing her music on YouTube. Later in her teens, Claudio split her time between Miami and Los Angeles as she promoted her work. Her debut EP, Confidently Lost, came out in 2017.
Later that year, her sultry ballad “Unravel Me” reached No. 22 on the Billboard Emerging Artists Charts.
Sabrina Claudio has since released four albums and has collaborated with artists like Zayn, The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, and the Chainsmokers. Her latest album, Based on a Feeling, came out in May 2022.
Canadian indie rockers Mother Mother will bring their “2022 Fall Tour USA” to the House of Blues on Sunday, October 23, at 7 p.m. Tickets to the Orlando concert start at $35.
Lead singer and guitarist Ryan Guldemond founded the band in 2005. At the time, he was a music student in Vancouver. Guldemond started writing catchy pop songs and asked his sister, Molly, and her friend Debra-Jean Creelman to harmonize on them.
By the end of the year, the band had recruited a rhythm section and released their first, self-titled album.
Mother Mother spent the late 2000s and 2010s building a solid North American fanbase. They’ve had six top 10 singles in Canada, and their songs have been streamed over 40 million times.
The band thought they were done recording music after releasing the 2018 album Dance and Cry.
But in 2020, their songs “Hayloft,” “Arms Tonite,” and “Wrecking Ball” went viral when TikTokkers started using them in cosplay videos. The newfound internet fame inspired the band to record their eighth album, Inside, in 2021.
Hippo Campus with special guest CHAI
Hippo Campus is an indie rock band from Minnesota. They’ll share the House of Blues stage with special guest CHAI on Wednesday, October 26, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $26.
Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts students Jake Luppen, Nathan Stocker, Zach Sutton, and Whistler Isaiah Allen formed Hippo Campus in 2013.
They released their first EP, Tarzan Rejects, in 2014. Their first LP, Landmark, came out in 2017. That year, NPR named them one of the station’s favorite new artists. The band’s latest album, LP3, came out in February 2022 and features the single “Boys.”
Supporting act CHAI is a Japanese dance-punk band that formed in 2012.
The band is comprised of twin sisters Mana and Kana Obata, alongside their school friends Yuuki Matsuni and Yuna Matsui. CHAI has released three LPs. The Guardian named their latest album, Wink, one of 2021’s best releases.
Toadies and Reverend Horton Heat
Post-grunge band Toadies and psychobilly act Reverend Horton Heat will play in Orlando on Thursday, October 27, at 8 p.m.
Toadies formed in 1989 in Texas. They spent the early 1990s playing at Dallas-Fort Worth nightclubs and eventually landed a deal with Interscope Records. The band put out their debut LP, Rubberneck, in 1994. The album featured the song “Possum Kingdom,” which became a Top 10 hit in the U.S. and Canada.
The band quickly started recording their sophomore album, but creative differences between them and the record company delayed its release until 2001.
Later that year, lead singer Vaden Todd Lewis decided to disband Toadies. They reunited in 2008, this time entering a deal with indie label Kirtland Records. Since getting back together, the group has released five albums.
Reverend Horton Heat is the stage name of Texan musician James Heath, and the name of his psychobilly band. Heath began touring the Dallas club circuit as a solo artist in 1985.
At the time, he played straightforward, ‘50s-inspired rockabilly music. By 1989, he’d hired a rhythm section and had adopted a punkier sound. The band’s first album was 1990’s Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em, but 1996’s It’s Martini Time was their commercial breakthrough. The album reached No. 165 on the Billboard 200.
Tickets to see Toadies and Reverend Horton Heat at the House of Blues start at $25.
