Debut Single from The Mortified After School Orchestra!

We are proud to announce that The Mortified After School Orchestra, the houseband for the LA chapter of our stage show, has just released their first official single online. An orchestral version of Thriller.

Check it out here on iTunes or CD Baby.

Congrats to band leaders Gordon Bash and Adam Smith for all their hard work arranging various tubas, cellos, accordions, trombones and more (full credit list coming soon).

To see The Mortified After School Orchestra live, attend one of our LA shows (NEXT SHOW SOON). Tickets: http://getmortified.com/live.

Or attend one of our Austin shows, too, as we recently formed a second incarnation of The Mortified After School Orchestra in that city!

Hey Hey Hey Belding!

Imagine being trapped in a trippy, nightmare version of your favorite childhood sitcom. Watch this video long enough and you will start to freak out regardless of sleep deprivation or pharmaceutical influence.

Troop Beverly Hills: The Experience

According to the event's official site, the TBH's 20th anniversary celebration is  going to be "a sing-a-long, dance-a-long, quote-a-long, and if we're lucky, Shelley Long." What other movie could have a cast that somehow paired a young Carla Gugino, Kellie Martin, Tori Spelling, and (whuh?!) rocker Jenny Lewis. Become an honorary Wilderness Girl and expect to see some fun in-person cameos from members of the movie's cast and crew. Oh, Mary Gross, we can only hope this includes you.
