Tickets are $3 with an RSVP and $12 without at the door. Doors are at 8 p.m., and it’s 18-and-over. An RSVP doesn’t guarantee entrance, so plan to arrive early.

Fool’s Gold began in 2007 as a side project of Luke Top (singer/bassist, also of Foreign Born) and Lewis Pesacov (guitarist). Incorporating elements of African music with Western indie-rock, the band quickly took off, releasing a well-received self-titled first album in 2009, sung entirely in Hebrew, and an English-sung second album, Leave No Trace, in 2011. They’ve played at such venues and festivals as the Hollywood Bowl, Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Austin City Limits. In 2015 the band released its third album, Flying Lessons, which continues to refine their aesthetic, throwing disco beats and more synthesizers into the mix. Watch the video for “I’m in Love” below:

OOFJ Bring Their Electro-Pop Noir to Amoeba July 23

Posted by Billy Gil, July 10, 2015 09:15am | Post a Comment

oofjListening to OOFJ feels like watching a film noir from the future. Melodramatic strings, bubbling electronic beats and Katherine Mills-Rymer’s desperately breathy vocals come together for a sound that wouldn’t feel out of place in a new David Lynch or Roman Polanski film. That’s not accidental—while you could draw comparisons to bands like Portishead and Goldfrapp, the band’s composer, Jenno Bjornkjaer, has worked on film scores like Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia, during which he met his musical and romantic partner in Mills-Rymer. The debut album from OOFJ (which stands for “orchestra of Jenno”) pulls heavily from filmic inspiration but manages to put that into four-minute electro-pop songs that are heady and addictively catchy in equal doses.

I took a minute to speak with the duo before their performances at Amoeba Hollywood July 23 at 6 p.m. and their slot playing Amoeba Music’s curated Red Bull Sound Select show July 30 at the Echoplex with Baths and Wrestlers (click here to RSVP).
