JUST ANNOUNCED: Silversun Pickups @ OV on Record Store Day!
Yeah you read that right, we've got Silversun Pickups coming through the shop to play an acoustic set for Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20th, so stuff THAT in your pipe and smoke it!
This is going to be a pretty crazy day, so only 40 people will be able to attend the show, and in order to pick those people we're going to be running a little contest. Here's the skinny on how to partake in the festivities:
The first 40 fans to come IN PERSON to Origami Vinyl and take an Instagram or Facebook photo holding up our sign that reads "I'm seeing SSPU at OV on APRIL 20th, 2013 for RSD" in front of the Origami Vinyl shopfront will get their name on the list (1 ticket per winner) to see Silversun Pickups play an intimate acoustic set in the OV loft on Record Store Day. Fans are required to share the photo on Instagram and/or Facebook and must tag @sspu @origamivinyl @recordstoreday and hashtag #SSPU@OVonRSD.
For those not familiar with the beginnings of SSPU, they got their start performing around the EP/Silverlake area, and we're stoked to be having these hometown heroes paying homage to their early years by playing here at Origami on RSD. They have a new album titled "Neck Of The Woods" (Dangerbird Records), and we think you should check it out, especially "The Pit," which we have conveniently provided you below.
