2006 is now upon us and things are starting to get very busy here at the office in preparation for the many exciting releases we have for the New Year. Very soon up we have theÂ Dimension Mixer on January 18th @ Cinespace (6356 Hollywood Blvd at Ivar) in Hollywood, which will surely be tons of fun. We’re selling advance tickets for the event through Paypal on the site here, I’m only going to tell you once – be sure to not miss it!
Oranger will be in three places at once on January 20th ‘without the aid of magic! Firstly they will be performing a free in-store at Amoeba Records on Sunset (6400 Sunset Blvd.) in Hollywood, Secondly the guys will jump in the van to play at The Echo (1822 Sunset Blvd.) with The Warlocks. And lastly the fine folks at the Beauty Bar will be hosting an after party for the show. Now THAT is what I call a Friday night!
Speaking of being busy,Â Irving have completed their second LP titled, Death In The Garden, Blood On The Flowers. During its fruition the album saw the production and engineering help of Phil Ek (The Shins, Modest Mouse), as well as Aaron Espinoza (Earlimart) and Jim Fairchild (Grandaddy) and the result is a gorgeous collection of pop majesty.Â Irving are hitting the road soon, so it’ll be your chance to hear some of the new record.
