Grand Rapids, Mich. — According to LocalSpins.com The Orbit Room is closing for the summer. Owner Don Dorshimer says it’s simply a matter of not wanting to compete with all the outdoor concerts that happen in the summer.
“You’ve got a ton of festivals, a ton of outdoor things going on,” Dorshimer says. “Every time you turn around there’s something, there’s Founders Fest, there’s Rock the Rapids, there’s constantly stuff going on in the summer.”
The Orbit Room’s website is still up, but no concert dates are currently listed under “Upcoming Shows.”
