Indie label Orchid Tapes is throwing a post-CMJ party on Sunday (10/18) evening in their living room. Most details are still TBA, but we know that they have one very special guest playing: Owen Pallett. He tweeted, "I'm playing Les Mouches songs at the @orchidtapes CMJ showcase this coming Sunday. New axe + new nails + old bad feelings." Les Mouches is Owen's old trio with Rob Gordon and Matt Smith (who he still collaborates with), and they reissued their album You're Worth More To Me Than 1000 Christians on Orchid Tapes over the summer. Stream a track below.
UPDATE: The full lineup is Owen plus Foxes In Fiction, Four Visions, Infinity Crush and Yohuna. Tickets are on sale now. Only 35 people will be admitted, and all proceeds will benefit the Silent Barn which is recovering from a fire.
Meanwhile, Orchid Tapes musician Foxes In Fiction (who opened for Owen in NYC earlier this year) opens the BrooklynVegan + Collect Records CMJ showcase at Baby's All Right tonight (10/14) with No Devotion (ex-Thursday), Wax Idols and Creepoid. Tickets are still available (proceeds go to Callen Lorde) and badges will be accepted.
Former Orchid Tapes/current Run for Cover artist Elvis Depressedly also plays a BV show tonight, opening for The Front Bottoms at Irving Plaza. They do it again tomorrow, and both shows are sold out.
Those Front Bottoms shows and the Collect showcase are just three of the five BrooklynVegan shows in NYC this week.
