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.
