Our favorite record shop, Origami Vinyl, has formed an investor group to look into the possibility of purchasing the Dodgers from embattled owners Frank and Jamie McCourt. Neil Schield, owner of Origami Vinyl, has been a life-long fan of the organization and couldn't resist the opportunity after fan protests called for removal of the McCourts. "The vinyl business has been very strong for the last 2 1/2 years," says Schield, whose vinyl-only record shop resides in the backyard neighborhood of Dodger Stadium in Echo Park. "I've lived in Echo Park for over 10 years and was born a few miles away in Whittier, California. After seeing these dimwits rob us Southern Californians of our baseball pride and legacy, it's time for a family of natives to come together again and kick the bums out!"
In celebration of this announcement, Origami Vinyl has teamed with their friends, clothing design gurus, Pony Attack!! and etnies to throw a huge party this Saturday, September 10th at The Echo in Echo Park. The event starts at 3:30 PM and is FREE to attend. Four local bands (all passionate Dodger fans) will play - Gestapo Khazi, Summer Darling, Future Ghost, and The Black Apples. Pony Attack!! designed and produced a limited edition T-Shirt and Tote Bag for the event that will be available for purchase. Origami Vinyl will also be serving up free Dodger Dogs, free Veggie Dogs, free peanuts and free CrackerJacks while they last. The event is 21+.
"This is a time to bring the Dodgers back to family, to Californians, to the fans! Let's have a great time and GOOOOOO DODGERS!!"
