Is it socially unacceptable to take cooler baths? If so, why? Cause we really want to this week. Especially fully stocked coolers.

Joel Jerome & Babies On Acid Residency @ The Echo!
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!

As part of Eat | See | Hear's incredible Summer lineup of awesome things to do in L.A, we are super stoked to help present tonight's screening of Rushmore with musical support Thieves! A formative movie (for at least one member of OV), Wes Anderson's revitalization of Bill Murray's career and introduction of Jason Schwartzman as Max Fischer was a service to the world over, and you owe it to yourself to see it on the big screen tonight in Griffith Park! Supporting Rushmore, Echo Park locals THIEVES will be getting your night started with their awesome blend of harmonies, synths and post-punk goodness. We are in favor of you getting the entire experience, so you better get there at 7PM for THIEVES and Rushmore!

Dub Thompson In-Store!
Natives of Agoura Hills, you wouldn't normally associate the trippy psych-garage sounds of Dub Thompson with their place of origin, but guitarist Matt Pulos and drummer Evan Laffer don't mind. Their brand of music exists in another plan of existence anyways. Touring in support of their newest album 9 Songs (Dead Oceans) we're super excited to have Dub Thompson up in our loft tonight at 7PM!
