So summer is over and we're all going through the fall-is-too-short-winter-don't-come blues. But put down that Pumpkin Spice Mocha-Latte no foam and winter sweater, we've got the remedy for you. LA based band, Fool's Gold is just what you need to shake your way into a happy fall. What started out as the side-project for Luke Top and Lewis Pesacov is now a tight knit band of five. After their self-titled debut in 2009, Fool's Gold diligently toured numerous cities and played festivals such as Glastonbury and Austin CIty Limits before releasing their sophomore LP, Leave No Trace. Fool's Gold plays fast, plays with precision, and plays with heart.
Fool's Gold takes pop music and adds African beats and rhythms to create hip shaking, feet stomping jovial music. With Luke Top (singer/bassist) singing almost every song in Hebrew this band gives a dash of much needed diversity to pop music today. Top sings more in english on the Leave No Trace LP, and is guaranteed to get your feet moving within the first four measures of, "Wild Window". Fool's Gold is music that brings people together. If you've heard them, you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you've never heard Fool's Gold before, what better way to enjoy them, than with a crowd of strangers dancing along side you at Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements. Find a good dance partner and maybe just get a date out of it! The three day festival runs September 16-18th in Chicago's Eckhart Park. Catch Fool's Gold at 6PM at the Criss/Cross Tent. Purchase tickets here. We all know that fall is upon us, it's inevitable but let us have one more dance party outside in the park before we bury ourselves in layers.
