OV WEEKLY: The One Where We All Try To Recover From RSD
Monday, April 21st (that's today!)
Mystic Braves Residency @ The Echo!
Tonight Echo Park faves and OV alums Mystic Braves take the stage with their patented blend of garage and psych rock! Formerly known as Blackfeet Braves, these guys have been gaining recognition within LA over the last couple years, and for good reason. The Braves craft groovy, psychedelic jams that tunnel right to pleasure centers in both your brain and your feet. Their 2013 self-titled album was one of our favorite local records of the year and we are super stoked for their newest record Desert Island which comes out later this month! So stop on by The Echo tonight at 8:30 for a kickass night of music courtesy of Mystic Braves. See you there!

RSD Leftovers! Record Club!
Missed out on RSD? Well OV's got your back, cuz we're gonna be stocking some RSD leftovers throughout the week! While some releases are truly sold out, we'll definitely have a few releases that sold out early Saturday morning for you to snag! Check back later this week for a list, but we think you'll be able to find RSD releases from Childish Gambino, Little Dragon, Anamanaguchi & more!
Once you grab those last few RSD releases, why not show 'em off to the world tonight at Record Club? We're gonna be spinning all night long at El Prado and would love to see some of those RSD rarities make an appearance! We know you wanna show your hard-earned wax off, so stop by and jam with us!

FYF Presents OFF! + Cerebral Ballzy @ The Roxy
Get that mid-week frustration out with us tonight when OFF! takes the stage at The Roxy. We're gonna be going at it hard and hope you can join us! We won't say anymore because we're not allowed to talk about OFF! for any longer than one of their songs.

Last Chance to Pre-Order Wye Oak's Shriek!
Now that RSD is over, we're back to that new release grind (if you can call it a grind), and this week features your last chance to nab Wye Oak's newest album Shriek on limited edition orange vinyl! Early reviews of the Baltimore band's newest have been glowing and we fully expect this LP to be sold out come next Tuesday. So beat the demand and secure your copy of Shriek today in our online store!

Incan Abraham In-Store!
Tonight at 7PM, we've got our homies Incan Abraham throwing down jams up in the loft! Friends since kindergarten, the members of Incan Abraham channel their multifaceted past in their debut LP Tolerance, fusing Lost Boys tribal energy with guitar, synth, and harmony vocal soundscapes that entice and hypnotize. Back in L.A and fresh off the heels of the release of Tolerance (which we totally dug when they were in the shop a few months ago), these awesome guys will be sharing their sound for all to hear tonight at 7PM!

An In-Store Double Feature: Washing Machines & FIM!
Because we are crazy, we booked two in-stores for tonight and hope you can handle two hours of kickass music tonight at 6PM!
First up, we've got L.A locals Washing Machines tearing up our loft at 6PM! Sounding like a Frankenstein mix of early 90s grunge and the emotive heart of post-punk, these locals have been garnering steady praise for their rough-around-the-edges live shows and unrelenting sonic attack. A perfect way to start any evening.
Following them, FIM will be laying down their experimental art-pop at 7PM! A quartet who came together through a mutual love for terrible horror movies and challenging music, FIM (which means end in Portuguese) released their latest EP Alien Dance Party last July, calling forth comparisons to Ween and Ariel Pink in the same sentence. Which we gotta hear live, because that almost sounds impossible.
So get them ears ready for a night of good music and we'll see you here at 6PM!
Now that we've planned your week, take a nap dude -- you deserve it!
