Extra Golden

The Orange Show presents the experimental Afro-jazz-funk band Extra Golden live this Saturday (6.14.08). DJ Sun is also on the bill.

The trans-oceanic collaboration of DC Indie rockers and Nairobi-based benga musicians, Extra Golden has burst on the American music scene with a sound that mixes jangling guitars and driving drums with soaring rock riffs and soulful vocals. Their songs are equal parts heavenly joy and earthly melancholy, but always undeniably danceable.Extra Golden’s latest release, Hera Ma Nono [available via emusic.com] has been collecting accolades from media such as Fader, Pitchfork, Blender, Stylus and Paste. Their music and story have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Day To Day.” Recorded in a cabin in the Pocono Mountains, Hera Ma Nono solidifies Extra Golden as much more than a cross-cultural curiosity. The high energy, electric guitar-driven beats of Benga fuse effortlessly with American funk traditions, resulting in songs that are guaranteed to have the audience up on their feet dancing at The Orange Show.

Should be a good show. Make plans to check it out.

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art is located at 2402 Munger St. Tickets are $12 presale and $15 at the door. Showtime is 8pm/doors open at 7pm.
