IN-STORE: Celestial Shore TONIGHT @ 6:30 PM!!

Come Check out Celestial Shore TONIGHT at OV @ 6:30 PM!

Celestial Shore is finally making the trek from Brooklyn to the West Coast, and oh boy, and we glad to have the at OV! This bare bones, no frills band really knows how to rock. You can dance to it, or just jam to it, but either way this band is going to wiggle their way into your heart and your Fall Playlist.

Their recently released album "Enter Ghost", released on Hometapes, is direct and confrontational, just how we like 'em. Celestial Shore has definitely not fallen into a sophomore slump, because their new album is gold. It may be mellow, but dancing around is unavoidable when this band is bumping. Insider tip: Gloria isn't about a girl at all, they just love New York that much. It's amazing and adorable in all of the best ways.  So catch them while they are exploring the West Coast, before NYC calls them home!

Cold Specks @ The Echo!

Like an off-label industrial process or cult ritual conducted in the dead of night, an artery flowing open in spurts or a complex society on the verge of collapse, Cold Specks' Neuroplasticity is both terrifying and morbidly enthralling to witness. Having returned after two years and a world map of tours following 2012's I Predict a Graceful Expulsion, tonight's the night to see 26 year-old Canadian singer under the sobriquet Al Spx rare talent and depth of feeling live on stage as the Echo. Breathlessly described and received overseas, Cold Specks are looking to conquer American airwaves and we fully expect them to begin their ascension tonight at The Echo!

Morgan Delt @ The Echo!

Awwww yeah. We love seeing OV faves live, and in the case of Morgan Delt, we've been waiting a while. Progenitors of one of our favorite psych records of the year, Morgan Delt's self-titled goes down rabbit holes with glee, trending upwards, inwards and outwards all at once. It's a super heady album that never manages to be overwrought, sending out waves of psych distortion that remind us of the better part of L.A heat waves. As one of OV's own put it: "Frantic, unrelenting and slightly unhinged, this record blares and blinks at you like one big psychedelic carnival. Don't be afraid to get lost." However, you should be afraid on missing out on this show, so you better get ready quick for tonight's show at The Echo!


Now that we've planned your week, make sure to get more than 7 hours of sleep a night! It's really necessary to healthy living!!

Single Mothers In-Store @ 7PM! Psychedelic Furs + The Lemonheads @ Fonda Theatre!

Single Mothers broke up in 2009, and have been playing together ever since. Their drunk, scab-peeling punk combined with shout-out lyrics makes them a real crowd pleaser.

After Single Mothers at OV, join us for a crazy good double bill at the Fonda: The Psychedelic Furs & The Lemonheads! 80s and 90s veterans, these two acts are tough to find apart, but even more so with a double bill like this one! If you were to dissect the alternative rock dominating todays music, youll find that much of it pays homage to The Psychedelic Furs. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, and his bass-wielding brother Tim, the Furs won over fans and critics alike by combining poetic lyrics, innovative rhythms and melodies driven by an aggressive, punk desperation. The Lemonheads have also had a major impact on indie music as we know it, beginning as a 80s punk band and growing to a college rock mainstay throughout the 90s with hits like "Mrs. Robinson" and "It's A Shame About Ray". Now together on the same stage at the Fonda, we're super stoked to see these two legendary bands on stage at once! Catch us at the Fonda at 9PM!






Now that we've planned your week, you better search your wardrobe for that perfect pink boa. We're expecting you to get dressed up for Tuesday y'know.

NATIONAL ARIEL PINK MONTH: pom pom Madness Begins!

With the thankful season upon us, we're celebrating how grateful we are for the psycho-genius mind of Ariel Pink by presenting a cornucopia of exclusive events in advance of his new album pom pom!  (Preorder is right on over here.) 

Featuring more fun than you can shake half a wishbone at, we've got a full plate of Ariel Pink awesome starting THIS WEEK at OV!

Firstly, we're getting the Ariel Pink party started with an exclusive peek into pom pom Tuesday at El Prado! As part of RCLA, we'll be premiering his new album before anyone else! Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel Pink, featuring infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. The record sees the Los Angeles native strike it out alone, returning to the solo moniker he has adopted for well over a decade. It's a brand new (or is it?) version of Ariel and we're so stoked to hear it all for the first time! To make things even sweeter, we've got some special treats to enjoy while the record spins at El Prado. First up, we'll have a super limited-edition cassette on hand for those of y'all who gotta have Ariel in your '95 Camry and also Ariel Pink themed donuts courtesy of Donut Friend! Can you guess what color those donuts will be? We're stumped. The party gets started at 9PM and goes until everyone collapses in a Donut/Drink/Ariel Pink™ coma. It's gonna be awesome!

But seriously...we have cassettes!! Record Club. Cassettes. You dig?



Then, on Saturday, we're giving you the opportunity to live out your rockstar fantasies with an afternoon of Ariel Pink themed limo rides! Ride in style in our pink stretch job and enjoy LA's finest sites with pom pom on the system! Make sure to let all your haters know where they can see you and take Saturday off to prove to the world you've truly made it. RSVPs are required for entry but do not guarantee a ride, so you better show up early if you wanna cruise with AP & pom pom!

<<<RSVP here>>>



And then to top it all off, Monday 11/17, we're gonna be having a wild 'n' out pizza party in the shop featuring ARIEL PINK BRANDED PIZZAS courtesy of Two Boots!

IN-STORE: Cave Clove TONIGHT @ 4 PM

Come check out Cave Clove TONIGHT @ 4 PM!

 Closing out a busy week at OV, the Oakland grown band of babes Cave Clove is rolling through! Sensuous and hazy, Cave Clove's desert-fried Americana is the perfect soundtrack to a quiet Sunday afternoon at OV. A four piece psych-folk ensemble, Cave Clove also plays with traditional Americana, soul, and R&B sensibilities. In combination with their obvious rock 'n' roll chops, Cave Clove's unique mix of genres creates a stellar sound that is all their own.
Headlined by their soulful harmonies and liquid guitar solos, Cave Clove represents another chapter in the ever-evolving book of Americana. In support of their newest 7" Kyrie, released on Royal Oakie Records, we're stoked what to see what Cave Clove brings to the loft and hope you can join us for some afternoon music right here at OV!
