KXSC Fest Vendor: AmazeBowl

If you want to pick up something delicious and FREE while at KXSC Fest, check out the Acai Bowls byAmazeBowl! To understand the Acai Bowl, you have to get to know know the acai berry. It's a superfood from the Amazon, rich in antioxidants, but most importantly very delicious with a dark chocolate-like taste. Along with the acai berry, the Bowl has good stuff like bananas, granola, strawberries, etc. Definitely make sure to stop by and chow down on one these.

KXSC Fest Vendor: Last Bookstore

Last Bookstore first began at a downtown Los Angeles loft in 2005. The idea started when owner Josh Spencer decided to stop his eBay business and start selling books. In December 2009 a small location in the Old Bank District on 4th and Main opened up and Last Bookstore became available to the public.

As one of the last places in Los Angeles still buying used books, the inventory filled up quickly. At the end of their lease in 2011 the shop moved to a 10,000 square foot location on 5th and Spring St and added a record shop and coffee bar within the store. A recent 6,100 square foot expansion currently holds the Labyrinth Above the Last Book Store with over 100,000 $1 books.

KXSC Fest Vendor: Origami Vinyl

Origami Vinyl, located in Echo Park, first opened its doors almost four years ago on April 3, 2009. Origami specializes in vinyl recordings, and sells new releases from high-profile indie artists as well as 7-inch singles from lesser know artists. In addition to this, there is whole section in the shop dedicated to music from Los Angeles artists.

 

The store has a vinyl-only sound system, vintage speakers, and the owner and employees write blurbs for every single record in the store, about 3000 records.

Origami Vinyl also publishes limited-run quarterly zines, and recently featured KXSC!

We ❤ Origami Vinyl!

Origami Vinyl also puts on free shows nearly every week. Past artists have included FIDLAR, Local Natives, Father John Misty, and Wavves.

Finally, as if Origami Vinyl wasn’t cool enough, they had artist Andy Ristaino, a lead animator for Adventure Time, paint a mural on one of their walls. 

Make sure to check out their booth at KXSC Fest!
