This Echo Park record shop (and music label) is a thin little sliver of awesome on Sunset Boulevard. It's open every day, and hosts at least one or two in-store shows a week, often with free pizza from Two Boots next door. Origami also hosts Record Club on Tuesdays at El Prado across the street, where vinyl collectors can bring in an album to be played at the bar in return for a free drink. Origami's involvement doesn't stop there—they're hugely active in events such as Record Store Day, as well as local fests like FYF, Echo Park Rising and Culture Collide, hosting bands and sidewalk sales. And the folks behind the counter here are just the right type of music snob—they know their shit and can help you find what you're looking for, but won't make you feel like a loser for not knowing as much as they do (and trust us, you don't). They're genuinely psyched to be doing what they're doing, and they want to share their excitement and knowledge with you, too, which means every time you go in you'll see a friendly face, learn something new and walk out with some great tunes.
