Warpaint recently returned to LA, on the heels of a busy Fall that saw the band announcing a new album, touring Europe including a headlining spot at Brixton Academy in London, and starring in a Calvin Klein ad campaign. To celebrate their return home and in the lead up to the release of their new self-titled album, the band decided to throw a special, impromptu listening party for family, friends, and a couple of lucky fans. Friday night they invited folks to Dilettante in downtown LA to listen to the vinyl test pressing they received just days before. It proved to be quite a fun night!
