TONIGHT: In-store w/ Heavy Hawaii @ 7pm!!

When surfing the internet about San Diego band Heavy Hawaii, I found the secret to their sound - they cite “babes” as a major inspiration. If you haven't heard Heavy Hawaii, you need to. They've got the essential California sound of melodic vocal harmonization that rides on waxing and waning instruments.

It's been said Heavy Hawaii is "reminiscent of the Beach Boys with some of the catchiest hooks to come out of the west coast in a while." Art Fag Recordings set their LP to release later this fall. Cruise through and catch them in-store tonight at 7pm!

Get stoked on their song "Super Bowl XXIX"

TODAY: In-Store w/ Lower Dens at 3 pm!

Today is a busy/special/awesome day because we have two in-stores for ya! First, we're excited to have the Lower Dens perform in-store today at 3 pm.

These Baltimore space-wavers' sophomore album, "Nootropics" (on Ribbon Records) ventures away from the more poppy sound of their debut, and explores Jana Hunter's vocal capacity with more experimental sound. Their music is intricately layered and gives off a sleepy ambiance that scored them touring positions with Beach House and Deerhunter.

Wander into OV today at 3 pm - we'll be lower than the Lower Dens as they serenade us from the loft! (sorry, I had to.)

Watch their new video for their song "Propagantion"

CORRECTION TODAY: In-Store w/ Jonathan Richman @ 5 pm!! @ 5pm!! @ 5pm!!

Really great things come in pairs: twins, shoes, Jonathan Richman performances. Yeah, we said it. You can catch Jonathan Richman in-store at OV TODAY @ 3 pm before he plays the Echo later tonight!

Jonathan Richman has had a illustrious career. He has been pumping out records (good ones!) since 1976 and touring non-stop since his first band, The Modern Lovers, heavily influenced the punk and indie rock movements.

Vapor Records released Richman's latest album O Moon, Queen of Night on Earth in 2010. "Richman again shows himself to be an evolving artist whose ears are wide open to the language of the world" as the album displays his innovative songwriting ability and contributions from various musicians.

We are over the moon about this! Sean has been working on booking this in-store since the day we opened!

Listen here and get stoked for today!

TONIGHT: In-Store w/ Amanda Jo Williams Record Release Party @ 7pm!

Tonight at 7pm Amanda Jo Williams will be in-store at Origami for the release party of her new album, The Bear Eats Me out June 19 on Neurotic Yell Records. Her voice embodies "Southern twang" in all senses of the phrase - it's genuine, sweeter than a peach pie, and warmly welcomes you to join in the fun.

The Bear Eats Me has been described as "dusty jukebox rock that will wake the kids in the middle of the night for a boot-stomping, moon-invoking dance party on the back porch."

So drop by right quick to witness Amanda Jo Williams sing from the heavens that is our loft at 7pm!

Third time really is the charm. Care to know why? Here goes, OV has a listening party for Everest's third album, Ownerless on ATO Records. As is the norm, we'll be charming you by celebrating with giveaways, pizza, and beverages while we listen to the whole record. The record comes out June 26 too, making it an extra lucky day!

Anticipate Ownerless to sound "like a band functioning like an eight-armed groove machine—a vibe cultivated by the bands newfound sense of not giving a fuck (in the best way possible)." Sounds like the perfect auditory side dish to go with pizza.

The fun starts at 8pm!

TODAY: In-Store w/ Dark Drive Clinic (John Fryer) 2pm!

What do two powerhouse musicians John Fryer (This Mortal Coil) and Rebecca Coseboom (Stripmall Architecture) sound like playing together? Well, we're not going to tell you, we're gonna to show you. Fryer's new project Dark Drive Clinic is performing in-store today at 2 pm. Their debut album, "Noise In My Head" on Metropolis Records, merges hints of heavy industrial percussion, long instrumentals, and a haunting synth sound, while Coseboom's "voice flutters around your head like a silky scarf and the whole is like a sonic manifestation of a romantic swoon” (The Stranger, Seattle). Not sure about you, but I'm looking forward to a voice fluttering around my head like a scarf on sounds engineered by the influential John Fryer. See you this afternoon at Origami at 2 pm!

Get ready for today with their track "Love's Lost Cross."
