Fridays this summer grab a blanket and head out and enjoy the warm weather the way you should! Starting at 6pm, the Hideout's porch will come alive with sun-baked tunes and fresh picnic boxes made available for purchase at the event from Local Foods. Sponsored by Odell Brewing.
Peter Oren
Peter Oren
At twenty-five years old, Peter Oren's rich voice sounds like someone took sandpaper to Tom Waits's growl. As a writer he's sometimes compared to Arthur Russell, Nick Drake, and Townes Van Zandt. He often focuses on unjust power dynamics and environmental degradation. He was arrested twice in 2011 for protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline and for protesting a JP Morgan recruitment event at Indiana University.

Peter was born and raised in Columbus, Indiana. He started writing songs at eighteen, hitchhiked alone in Norway at nineteen, and dropped out of college at twenty. He’d garden if he could stay put long enough. At times he may be found sleeping in the back of his truck by the ocean or up a national forest road. Peter has something to say for his generation.

Joe Pug-- “I think the sky is the limit for him. He's a really creative writer and he has a really idiosyncratic and beautiful voice."
