Record Store Day 2012
Saturday, April 21st, fans began lining up at six in the morning to be the first to step foot into Los Angeles' own, Origami Vinyl. The date also marked Record Store Day, a time when audiophiles the world over come out to show their support for the indies, majors and music patrons both large and small. Origami Vinyl paid special tribute by keeping it all in the family and hosting a daytime show two doors down at The Echo, the neighborhood's premier indie venue.
Generic Surplus and eskuché Headphones gave buyers an extra perk by offering a free tote bag with purchase or a coveted white label single from LA's Stones Throw Records. The line to Origami stayed consistent as the sounds of Henry Clay People, Big Black Delta, Races, Zammuto and others boomed from inside The Echo. Guests were also treated to an eskuché listening lounge where the decks were on heavy rotation as bands and fans spun their latest wares and tried out the newest technology from the elite headphone brand.
