Joel Jerome & Babies On Acid Residency @ The Echo! Junk @ The Satellite!
Recent converts to the fight against June Gloom, Joel Jerome & Babies On Acid are here to save your Monday nights with their June residency at The Echo! Self-described as "experimental thriftstore folk," Joel & company focus their collective cosmic forces on songwriting and melody with dynamic arrangements and trans-genre instrumentation that are like, way catchy. Hailing from the South Bay and flitting between a mishmash of genres and styles, these dudes pound out pop hooks and rhythms that'll rocket them up every mixtape you make from now until forever. We dig their stuff and thing you will too, so come get all comfy-psych with us tonight at The Echo! We can shimmy or shamble or just chill all night long!
Also on our plate tonight: Our bud Evan Weiss of PAPA and Girls has a new band called JUNK and they're playing their first show opening for French Style Furs at The Satellite! The whole night is free and JUNK's first songs sound awesome, so you know where we'll be tonight at 9PM! Join us so you can be that guy who "was totally at their debut show" when JUNK makes it big! Check out their music on Soundcloud!

OV Presents Rodrigo Amarante @ Bootleg Theatre! Chad VanGaalen + Paul Bergmann @ The Echo!
Need to medicate that mid-week slump? OV's got options plenty. First up, Origami + The Fold present Rodrigo Amarante tonight at the Bootleg!
Also playing tonight are OV faves Paul Bergmann & Chad VanGaalen at The Echo!
Back in January, Paul Bergmann played our little loft and blew us away with his potent voice and country stylings so much that we've been following him all over L.A ever since. Now opening for the supremely talented Chad VanGaalen (whose new record Shrink Dust, is just divine), we can't wait to see what this duo can do on The Echo stage and hope you can join us for a night of great music! As always, tickets are for sale here in the shop! See you there!

Yann Tiersen + NO @ The Fonda! Mystery Friday Post???
The most important part of every weekend is starting it correctly, and thanks to NO & Yann Tiersen, it looks like this weekend is going to be awesome! Opening up the night, OV man Sean Stenzie will be hypnotizing the Fonda stage alongside NO, and we fully expect to swoon every time he looks at us. He's so dreamy. Afterwards, musical legend Yann Tiersen will be playing songs from his newest album Infinity plus all of those songs you put on when you want to feel really worldly. We seriously can't wait.
Also going down this Friday, OV intern Ted will be taking over the blog for a "Ted Talk." We are mystified, giggling and REALLY EXCITED. Check the blog Friday for the full spiel!
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah @ Troubadour 8/7 - 1 ticket comes with the purchase of CYHSY's newest LP Only Run!
Keep an eye on our Twitter/Facebook for future giveaways!
Now that we've planned your week, take good care of your fingernails! Because if today's U.S game is any indicator, you're gonna need them come Sunday!
