10/11: OV Presents An Evening Of Experimental Drums with Darren Weiss of Papa

We're excited to host a special in-store performance with Darren Weiss (drummer/lead singer) of Papa tonight at 7pm.

It's the release week of Papa's new record, Tender Madness, and we're celebrating! The band will be curating a wall at the shop with their favorite records and we'll have Papa tickets to give away to their show on 12/6 as well as limited edition 7"s to give away with purchase of the album.

" PAPA’s debut full-lengthTender Madness is out next week. The album is practically dripping in E-Street Band influence (look no further than the 1-2-3 count-off and sailing introductory keyboard increments on the opening track “Put Me To Work”) but Weiss sings in such artfully-arranged monotone that he manages to tarnish the glistening instrumentals into something a little less recognizable. A good number of the tracks on Tender Madness are straight-up roaring anthems — songs for long car rides and staying up late — but PAPA’s strength as storytellers lies in their ability to chill out and step back. Tender Madness doesn’t go out with a bang. Instead, PAPA closes their debut with “Replacements,” a hazy ballad featuring the smokey voice of country singer Lydia Rogers, grounding the record in something sultry and nostalgic that lingers long after the final acoustic strum.

Check out their song "If You're My Girl, Then I'm Your Man" and we'll see you tonight at 8!
