TONIGHT: Altamont Apparel presents Drawlings (Abby Portner) in-store @ 7pm
Tonight! Free in-store with Drawlings! 7pm! Free! At Origami Vinyl! Drawlings is the solo music project of Abby Portner, sister of Animal Collective's founding member David Portner (Avey Tare). Having been a member of bands Rings and Hex Message, Abby started Drawlings in summer 2008 as a way to relate her art with music and to express herself in a more personal way. Since inception, Drawlings has recorded a 7" titled "Be Good to Earth This Season" and was a featured performer at the UK's All Tomorrow's Parties festival last May.
Besides music, Portner is most notable for her visual artwork - more particularly with Animal Collective and other Paw Tracks artists. Abby is responsible for the artwork on multiple AnCo releases and Avey Tare's Down There" full-length. In addition, Portner has also designed posters and merchandise for the band and, in 2011, contributed the music video for Animal Collective's MPP song, "In Flowers." Abby has recently designed some sweet merch for Altamont and we're having this fun in-store in celebration! Come on down for some Drawlings action TONIGHT! See you at 7pm.
