UPCOMING: Sufjan Stevens Silent Listening Party 3/17

SUFJAN FANS REJOICE! His new record, Carrie & Lowell, comes out on Asthmatic Kitty Records on 3/31! This record "sounds like memory: it spans decades yet does not trade on pastiche or nostalgia... Each track in this collection of eleven songs begins with a fragile melody that gathers steam until it becomes nothing less than a modern hymn." Basically, the whole album is going to wash over you and envelope you in a blanket of warmth and melancholy. Sounds like something to experience on your own right? So how in the hell are we having a listening party for this masterpiece?


Here's how it works:
-You pre-order the album to guarantee your spot. (You can get it here or in-store)
-The night of the party, you come to Origami, grab a slice of free pizza and a drink and your own set of headphones.
-We all listen on our own, but experience this bliss together!

We're holding this party on March 17th at 6pm at the shop. This will be the first time you can hear the album in it's entirety - before it's even on the internet! We hope you can make it! Here's a little preview to wet your whistle.


  1. I already preordered the album through Asthamatic Kitty's site. Am I out of luck?

  2. My girl wants to come but we don't need 2 copies, 1 for the house will do... Help!

    1. That's cool just note it in your order.

  3. I also pre-ordered the album a while ago through Asthmatic Kitty. Hope there's room for me!
