Friends and Fam!
Origami Vinyl is very excited to host two rad events this weekend and we hope that most of you can come out to check one or maybe both of them out!
Tomorrow marks the first annual "Echo Park Holiday Shop Hop" and Origami Vinyl is getting involved in a big way! First off, the Echo Park Holiday Parade kicks off at Noon, rain or shine! Then Origami will put on an Origami folding workshop outside our doors to teach kids how to fold cool things like frogs, cobras, boxes, and cranes. Then around 3pm, newly signed to Sub Pop, local faves Avi Buffalo will kick off a set in our loft! At about 7pm, the lovely Angela Correa aka Correatown will perform. In addition to our festivities you will also find a comedy show and Charles Dickens reading at 826LA, The Damselles doing doo wop holiday caroling up and down the strip, a Santa visit at the Out of the Closet, Craft Fair at the Echo, and all sorts of other rad stuff. You can check the Echo Park Holiday Shop Hop Facebook Page for more info about participating shops and their events. This is a great opportunity to bring the family out, do some holiday shopping, get some deals, and support local business!
On Sunday, local but nationally coveted music blog, Aquarium Drunkard will host their "Decade in Review" party at Origami Vinyl from 7pm - ???. For the past couple of months, Aquarium Drunkard has been highlighting all their favorite albums of the 2000's on their site and will celebrate the decade here at the shop! Performances from The Henry Clay People, Evan Way of Parson Red Heads, and Dirt Dress will all be happening in the loft. Free beer will be flowing. Origami has also stocked their shelves with as much of AD's faves as possible so that you can get in on the action!!
Both events are free! We hope to see you here! And thanks to everyone for all of your support. Flyers for both events are below.
