O.J. San Felipe of Brooklyn’s Golden Triangle, also a former Bay Area guy, is touring for the release of his newest LP with his latest ensemble Xray Eyeballs. Not Nothing is out now on Kanine, and the first single “Egyptian Magician” was premiered by MOKB. It’s a much dreamier, New Wave-type sound than the harder garage pop San Felipe does with Golden Triangle.
You’ll have two chances to catch San Felipe and Xray Eyeballs in the Bay Area this time around — either tonight at Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland with Shannon and the Clams and Uzi Rash, or Wednesday at the Hemlock with King Lollipop and Burnt Ones (9pm, $7). Both great shows with loving hometown support.
Check the band’s blog for up-to-the-minute media, disposable photos of Bay Area friends and Vivian Girls, and whatever.
