IN-STORE: GRMLN TONIGHT @ 7 PM!!

GRMLN will be shredding in the loft tonight @ 7 PM!! So GET HERE ALREADY!

Yoodoo Park, also known as GRMLN, is one California native that we just can't get enough of. (Look at him, can you blame us?) GRMLN's first album "Empire" made waves in 2015, and we are almost positive that the song "Teenage Rhythm" was on everyone's go-to playlist that summer. Plus have you seen the video? Genius, because who doesn't love degenerate old hippies.
Let's just say GRMLN has created some high expectations for himself, and his sophomore album "Soon Away", being released by Carpark Records in September of 2014 , doesn't disappoint. It's filled with the same upbeat angst as before, and still has all the grit and grin as the last, but maybe with a tad more sophistication. If you haven't checked it out yet, tonight is the perfect opportunity.

Get up close and personal with GRMLN tonight at 7 PM!

TONIGHT: CRIMINAL HYGIENE HIJACK RECORD CLUB!!! Ahhh!

Tonight's gonna be one hell of a night!


Echo Park arsonists/pizza delivery guys/punks Criminal Hygiene are releasing their brand new 7-inch "Turpentine" on L.A. label New Professor, and they're hosting our weekly record club to celebrate. The band toured relentlessly in 2014 crisscrossing the U.S., doing a run with Twin Peaks and the Meatbodies, and playing New Year's Eve in Chicago with The Orwells. "Turpentine" is a bittersweet melodic punk gem that captures everything this trio of big-hearted troublemakers does best, backed with an unhinged cover of Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge." Bring a record to El Prado across the street from OV and the Criminal Hygiene boys will spin some of their favorites and some of yours. Of course we'll have a tall stack of Criminal Hygiene records for sale as well.


We'll see ya tonight! And in the meantime, be sure to check out the infectious "Turpentine" below!

IN-STORE: Joel Jerome TONIGHT @ 7 PM!!

Joel Jerome is swinging by TONIGHT @ 7 PM!! Don't Miss Out!!

Joel Jerome is most known for his experimental thriftstore folk music. What is that you ask? Well, you can expect heavy bass, organ/acoustic, drums, and LOTS of vocals. If that doesn't sound like a good time, you may need to re-evaluate your definition of "good time". You may know Joel Jerome from dios or Babies on Acid, or even bands like Cherry Glazer that he helped produce, but his solo set at Origami is going to be a little different from all of that. He is a lyricist in the truest sense, he can say a lot in just a line or two, and his songs are so natural that they will feel just like old favorites even if its the first time you are hearing them.

Joel has a special way of reining in harmonies over punchy, old school drums and guitar experimentation using vintage amps that creates a sound hard to find anywhere else. Joel Jerome is a magician, and this will be a show you won't ever forget.

TONIGHT @ 7 PM! Experience music like never before!

Kissing Cousins:
Kissing Cousins is an all girl band from Los Angeles, California. As the main creative outlet for songwriter Heather Bray Heywood, Kissing Cousins has had a variety of female musicians comprise the lineup. Most of whom were friends prior to joining the band as part of the greater East Side Los Angeles music scene. Heywood's songwriting is stark, baroque, and often sexually charged. With haunting melodies over noisy guitars and pounding rhythms, Kissing Cousins' music belies the sweet appearance of their name and image.


While you wait for tonight to roll around, check out Kissing Cousins' song "You Bring Me Down" below and stop on by The Satellite every Monday this December. We'll see you there!

Together Pangea + Audacity @ The Echo! RCLA!

The fun gets started at 9PM, so dig out those LPs and get ready for a night of great music!

New Years Eve: Time To Party Baby!

OV's closed today: Neil's already drinking so he can get to bed early, Steen's gotta rest her voice, Simone's in like another state to party, Emily is out shopping for the perfect NYE leather jacket (which apparently is a thing?), and Sean is practicing midnight kisses with Lyra. Sorry friend, guess you'll have to wait a bit to get some wax. Or y'know, you could just order something from our online store. Problem solved.

As for me, well, I'm busy getting hype to Kidz Bop:




Thursday, January 1st
New Years Day: Time To Rest Baby!

OV's also closed today. Sippin' mimosas and watching the Rose Parade's 7th telecast. KTLA or bust. See you Friday for our regularly scheduled programming!




That's all we've got this week hombre, we gotta start picking out our feather boas out for Wednesday. See you next year, 2014's been great!

OV PRESENTS: Kissing Cousins Residency TONIGHT @ The Satellite!

Kissing Cousins:
Kissing Cousins is an all girl band from Los Angeles, California. As the main creative outlet for songwriter Heather Bray Heywood, Kissing Cousins has had a variety of female musicians comprise the lineup. Most of whom were friends prior to joining the band as part of the greater East Side Los Angeles music scene. Heywood's songwriting is stark, baroque, and often sexually charged. With haunting melodies over noisy guitars and pounding rhythms, Kissing Cousins' music belies the sweet appearance of their name and image.

While the last record, Pillar Of Salt, produced by Richard Swift, took a decidedly lo-fi approach, the new EP / double 7 inch Unfortunate End is heavier, darker, and meaner. Produced By S Foye, the music utilizes more experimental instrumentation like Autoharp strummed through delay pedals and drum machines played manually through distorted amps. There is still plenty of reverb soaked vocals, vicious guitar tones, and stomping drums, but for the first time, the songs twist and turn within time signatures and tempos. With Unfortunate End Heywood and Kissing Cousins continue in a long tradition of redefining what it is to be in a "girl band" and what it is to sound feminine, southern, and ultimately, unique.


While you wait for tonight to roll around, check out Kissing Cousins' song "You Bring Me Down" below and stop on by The Satellite every Monday this December. We'll see you there!

IN-STORE: Whitman TONIGHT @ 5 PM!!


Whitman is rolling by TONIGHT @ 5 PM! Knowing him, it will be a one of a kind performance!

Whitman, and his rusted and forlorn sound are really one of a kind. You can't tell his music is made with broken down instruments, scraps of metal and trashy guitars,  but once you find out its all the more impressive. Whitman infuses his music with the essence of LA in the purest sense. You can taste the smog and imagine the vacant lots, and soiled mattresses on the sidewalks.

His new album Restoring Darkness comes out on Folktale Records December 30th, and is sure to be filled to the brim with all of the joy and brutality that we know and love in LA. His lyrics are sometimes painful, and so emotional that its impossible not to feel the disconnect Whitman is portraying. Don't let the pink towel and beach babes fool you, its about as deep as it gets.

Come check Whitman out Live TONIGHT to get the full experience. You won't forget this in-store.
