This weekend at Vacation - Sunset Junction OUR WAY

While the "official" Sunset Junction fest has been canceled, we here at Vacation Vinyl refuse to NOT party. We've got a killer weekend of events in the shop, and unlike that festival, our events are FREE for everyone. In-stores & record release parties with the following: 400 Blows, Bestial Mouths, The Men & Milk Music, along with some great guest DJs. Read below for more information!

Saturday, August 27th, 1pm-5pm

400 Blows "Sickness and Health" LP release party!

Following news of the cancellation of this year's Sunset Junction music festival, 400 Blows and The Butthole Surfers have moved Saturday's upcoming Los Angeles show to popular local venue The Echoplex.

Recently named "Best Album of the Month" by Vice Magazine, 400 Blows will be celebrating the release of "Sickness and Health" with a daytime party this Saturday at Vacation Vinyl. We've got some awesome guest DJs including Chuck Dukowski (Black Flag, Black Face, Sextet), Gabe Serbian (The Locust, Retox, Year Future, Le Butcherettes), Joey Karam (One Day as a Lion, The Locust) and Zane (Killing Spree). Vacation Vinyl will be selling the limited white vinyl pressing of the new 400 Blows LP at this event!

Saturday, August 27th, 8pm-9pm
Bestial Mouths "Hissing Veil" LP release party!

Later in the night, LA industrialists Bestial Mouths will perform in the store for the LP release of their DAIS Records album "Hissing Veil" on LP. The record is 40 minutes of intense gloom. A meditation on the relationship between transgressor and victim conceived in a flurry of automatic writing, Hissing Veil is an urgent declaration revealed in a barrage of primitive rhythms and feral calls.

Sunday, August 28th, 4pm
The Men & Milk Music

Two heavy and blown out bands are going to tear the shop apart Sunday and they'll be playing a show later that night at Bordello downtown (901 E. 1st st)

Milk Music (above) will open with their Wipers/Dinosaur Jr./Husker Du-zoned meltdown, and The Men (below) are going to finish it out from a similar headspace but in a lo-fi and confusing Kraut-meets-hardcore fuzz wall which is somehow just good ol' rock-n-roll. It doesn't necessarily make sense but it sounds good so it doesn't need to be understood.

POWER OF THE RIFF this Saturday at the Echo/Echoplex!

The Power of the Riff festival is this Saturday at the Echo & Echoplex in Echo Park, and Vacation Vinyl's own Pete Majors will be performing with his band Harassor. Vacation Vinyl curated the DJs for this event and will have a pop-up store in the merch area of the Echoplex!

Sunday, August 14th at 5pm, Vacation Vinyl will be hosting an afterparty with a guest DJ and two surprise bands. This event is free and all-ages!

LORD FOUL LP release party Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011 @ 8pm

LORD FOUL "Killing Raping Burning / The Devil's Advocate" LP (DAIS Records) release party! featuring DJ sets by ROACH of LORD FOUL, and an in-store performance by his current band HARASSOR.

HARASSOR just had their first full-length self-titled LP drop earlier this year and will be touring up the coast with HIVE MIND in mid-August!

LORD FOUL – “Killing Raping Burning / The Devil’s Advocate” is an absolute time capsule of blasphemous American Black Metal, a collection of the only material (two demo cassettes) ever recorded by Louisville, Kentucky’s Lord Foul between 1993 and 1994, who’s only member “Roach” played and recorded every instrument. A hateful document from the early metal underground! Vacation Vinyl is carrying the limited to 100 version of this on satanic RED VINYL!

This vinyl is a single-sided etched art edition, with beautiful artwork by Bryan Burk of Dark Horse Tattoo carved into the B-side. The record is limited to 100 on red, 400 on black, and comes in a thick cardstock matte finish sleeve with new foil embossed artwork (Also by Burk.)
