Origami Vinyl Presents Twilight Sleep and Kissing Cousins (Our #1 local album of 2009) at the Spaceland on Ice event at Pershing Square in Downtown Tonight @ 8pm. The event is all ages and is free to attend. If you want to rent some ice skates and try and see how long you can stay on your feet, I think it's only $2! There's also some yummy street vendor food and taco's close by. And if you are really looking to make it a night out, go hit up Bar 107 after!
Here's the address

LA Weekly picked this as their top show tonight. Check out what they had to say...
"Echo Park record shop Origami Vinyl curates this installment of Spaceland's concert series at Pershing Square, choosing two lady-led local bands to soundtrack a night of ice skating and (we hope) eating fair food 'neath the twinkling lights of the downtown skyline. Twilight Sleep specializes in a sultry style of synth-heavy shoegaze made hypnotic by the husky vocals of singer Tracy Mercellino. When the project was a solo act, Mercellino found occasional collaborators in folks like Silversun Pickups singer Brian Aubert, but now she's got an all-star indie cast to back her fulltime: guitarist Nicole Gehweiler (The Comas), bassist Nicole Fiorentino (Radio Vago, Veruca Salt), and drummer Davey Latter (Earlimart, Great Northern). Kissing Cousins recently released debut LP, Pillar Of Salt, was produced by Richard Swift, but more interesting still is the backstory of frontwoman Heather B. Heywood. The daughter of a Pentecostal preacher, she relocated to L.A. from Alabama in order to make her distinct music: a mix of Spector-esque harmonies and Sabbath-inspired rock." - Chris Martins
Hope you can all come out and play!
