The band is made up of Luke Chester (guitar/vocals), Richard Smith (guitar/vocals), Harry Drakes (bass) and Troy Hutchinson (drums).
Their fusion of indie punk will be fresh to your ears and they are influenced by The Libertines, The Cribs, Joy Division, The Clash, The Doors and The Smiths.
Singer, Richard, 22, of Grimsby, said: "We have written quite a few songs, but Happy was our favourite and I wrote it with Luke whilst we were happy as hell.
"We have been compared to The Libertines, but we try and shy away from that.
"This is the biggest gig we have done so far and one of our first steps to playing a lot more gigs."
Richard said the tickets are selling fast, he added: "On Facebook, around 100 people have confirmed they are coming."
Also performing solo from Orphan Boy is Rob Cross, who recently had a sell-out gig at the Casablanca club with his band. He has been making music with the band since 2005 and they have released two albums.
Former Grimsby scaffolder, Rick Emsley, who has a huge following, will also be performing.
The singer/songwriter is constantly writing and recording tunes. His videos on Youtube have attracted plenty of attention and his latest video for his song Tired Of Pretending featured fellow Grimsby lad and actor Thomas Turgoose.
The launch party begins at 7pm. Advance tickets cost £3 and are available at The Corner Lounge Bar or at Twinkles Fancy Dress shop, in Isaac's Hill, Cleethorpes.
On the door tickets cost £5 (subject to availability). For more information, visit www.theonlinefestival.com
