It's Monday, May 9th and we've got a fantastic show(s) for you this evening...
Kicking off our night are two fantastic artists from Philadelphia coming through...BR'ER + SCALLION. Both acts play quirky & somber music reminiscent of sayyyyyy The Magnetic Fields or Tunng or something else. They were sent our way by some kids in Idaho (yeah...I don't know either?) but we've heard nothing but good things! They hit the loft at 6pm.
(sweet tour poster!)
After that sweet start, move on over with us to The Echo patio at 9pm where we will be celebrating the release of the flamboyantly vaudevillian MAN MAN's new LP "Life Fantastic", out on Anti-. (Also from Philadelphia...what's with that?)
(Man Man "Life Fantastic")
MAN MAN's latest is another chaotic & careening ride through the same dark waters as their previous records but this time finds them trading some of that energy for darker & moodier moments. The album sounds more focused, no doubt in part as much to the bands growth as it is to Mike Mogis' production. We'll be spinning this fantastic album all the way through starting at 10pm. And as always your Origami homies will be spinning fine ass jams for your spank bank from 9pm until 1am.
Also tonight at The Echo, Origami Vinyl presents THE BIXBY KNOLLS as they kick off their May residency. Joined by BOWERY BEASTS & STEVENSON RANCH DAVIDIANS, this is the start of a month sure to be full of some fine power pop & arena rock jams.
