Tony Molina In-Store! OV Presents Moses Sumney @ The Bootleg!
Tonight at 6PM, we have Tony Molina performing in our very own loft! You know him from projects like Dystrophy, Ovens, Lifetime Problems, Caged Animal, and Violent Change - so needless to say, his solo stuff is top notch. Tony Molina's pop and hardcore projects have gained him a variety of fans, and his guitar riffs and lyrics will definitely take you on a melodramatic emotional journey. We're honored to have an artist that displays such variety in his music in our loft tonight. Not only that, but Slumberland will be reissuing the hard to find LP, Dissed and Dismissed, on 2/25 and we've got it before the street date! You better get down to OV quick!
Next up, Origami is super-stoked to be presenting rising L.A singer-songwriter Moses Sumney at the Bootleg Theatre every Monday in March! A UCLA alum, Moses' craft is a intoxicating mix of soul and folk arranged around liquid guitar lines and unique looped arrangements. Popping up as a special guest for many soon-to-be-big bands, Moses has been receiving glowing reviews across the board without a single physical release to his name, and looks to be moving up in the L.A music world. With talent to spare, Moses' residency at the Bootleg is sure to be a breakout success and we look forward to seeing him and you there every Monday this March! Give a listen to a live performance of "Replaceable" and we'll see you tonight at 9PM!

"Bob Dylan In The 80s" Tribute Album Premiere Party! Record Club!
Tonight at 7PM, we're gonna be premiering ATO Records' newest tribute compilation Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One a week before it hits stores!
Now we know "Dylan in the 80s" might be the best way to elicit cringes from Dylan fans, but for some Dylan-ites, the singer-songwriter's flirtation with new styles in his "lost" decade represent a hotbed of forgotten gems. Headed by producers Jesse Lauter (Elvis Perkins, The Low Anthem) and Sean O’Brien (Dawes, PAPA), Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One features covers by a wide range of alt stars including Built To Spill, Aaron Freeman of Ween, Glen Hansard, Reggie Watts, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, and more! This newest compilation from ATO is sure to open a new page in Dylan lore and we couldn't be more excited to play it for you a week before its release!
Afterwards, why not head on over to El Prado for another weekly dose of Record Club? In celebration of Dylan, we'll be playing some of our favorite tracks and would love to hear yours too! It's gonna be a great evening and we really hope to see you there!
