In celebration of their new album, The Eternal, Sonic Youth will take over L.A.s hottest new record shop. For one day only, on June 9th, Origami Vinyl will become Sonic Youth’s House of Shifting Plates and Ridiculous Juice, as dubbed by the band itself. Origami’s wall of featured albums will display selections hand-picked by Thurston, Kim, Lee, Steve and Mark – ranging from Okkyung Lee to John Lennon – as well as a wide range of Sonic Youth and Sonic Youth related releases. The band has also invited their friends Pocahaunted and Shiloe to play sets at the store.

As if that weren’t enough, Two Boots Pizza will create a special “Eternal” pie that resembles the album’s artwork. Slices of this pie will be given away free during the event at Origami. Phil, owner of Two Boots and long-time friend of the band, is excited to be a part of the band’s new release.

To all of you devout Sonic Youth/Buy Early Get Now fanatics…
If you have purchased The Eternal early through either a fine indie retailer, one of our online outlets or directly from the Matador store, we MUST implore you to please log in and register your purchase on www.buyearlygetnow.com.
We realize that some of you only picked up the record early to score the ever-so-awesome Live LP (ever. so. awesome.) and are not bothering to log in and get your bonus mp3s and early stream of The Eternal. But the reality is, we don’t want to run out of these limited Live LPs and the best way to ensure we don’t is for you to register on the site so that we can keep a real-time log of the amount of LPs we need.
It only takes a minute and we will never use your registration information to market anything to you.
And to those of your who have already logged in, there is no need to log in again.
As if a Live Pavement LP, a Sonic Youth/Jay Reatard 7″ AND a Sonic Youth/Beck 7″ weren’t enough, we’re spreading the love with some live instore performances. If you live in or around Memphis or Columbus, be sure to check out Jay Reatard or Times New Viking kicking it RSD style.
