Off The Record :: The Idaho Falls, Los Angeles (Rancho Park)

Off The Record is a recurring feature here on the Drunkard that marries two of my greatest interests; music and travel. Having a locals perspective when visiting a new locale is the difference between experiencing it through the lens of a tourist and of that of a native.

Off The Record gathers some of my favorite artists, asks them to reflect on their city of residence, and choose a handful of places they could not live without -- be them bookstores, bars, restaurants or vistas.

Off the top of my head we have featured our hometown ten to fifteen times; from Long Beach and the South Bay to West L.A. and the Eastside. Searching through the Off The Record archives, one could come up with a pretty thorough guide of cool shit do do when visiting L.A. Today is no exception. Catch up with the Idaho Falls' Raymond Richards as he plays tour guide in his Rancho Park neighborhood. Look for their excellent new album, The Spark, out next Tuesday (January 26th). Don't miss the mp3s after the jump.

Only the good shit. Aquarium Drunkard is powered by its patrons. Keep the servers humming and help us continue doing it by pledging your support.
