“Oh my god, did you hear? A non-D.C. band is playing Fort Reno. What the fuck?!”
Calm down people: Due to a spelling mistake posted on the Fort Reno Web site (likely caused by some well-meaning spell-checking program that had no idea how much outrage it was about to create), the opening act of this performance was incorrectly reported as the Louisville, Ky., hard-rock quartet Boom Orangutans (whose name, incidentally, is actually just “Boom Orangutan”). The opening act is, in fact, the Boom Orangutangs, a D.C. based indie-rock quartet that intentionally spells its name wrong.
Please direct all of your rage to the F7 button on your keyboard, and not to the fine folks organizing this free concert series.
