Now that I am on the hunt for the perfect Los Angeles neighborhood to relocate to come summertime, I am always finding a way to adventure to a new part of town. On Monday, Proxart was hosting a issue release gathering for their 8th issue at Origami Vinyl in Echo Park. As one of my favorite groups in LA, I definitely enjoy hanging out with the Proxart folks. (So much so, I am especially impressed to say that I went to high school with these cool kids and have seen the group transform to the powerful creative community it is today) I brought along good company and enjoyed canned beers and live music by Atlanta-based folk rockers Little Tybee. Just off West Sunset, Origami Vinyl is a teeny shop and record-lovers music box haven. From Johnny Cash to The Black Keyes, I got my browse on and even picked up one for myself. After Little Tybee, I got to chat with the violinist in the group, Nirvana Kelly. (How could it be folk rock without?!) She was incredibly down to earth (and extremely talented--so rare!) about living in Atlanta, SXSW and the band’s road trip through the West Coast. The evening was finished with some delicious Thai drunken noodles at It’s Thai, needless to say it was just what I needed to compliment my earlier musically delicious feast for the ears.
