Oceanography @ The Night Light

Oakland’s Oceanography, the recording project of East Bay Express Art Director Brian Kelly, is headlining a gig at The Night Light in Oakland this Friday, April 26, with support from Couches, Mosshead, and The There There. Kelly, whose track “Reggie Jackson” ranked high on my list of favorites from last year, hasn’t dropped any new material since the 2012 release of his brilliant sophomore EP Parachutes of Plenty, but he has been playing a steady diet of shows in both the Bay and down in the City of Angels. The frontman tells me, “This show will be unique because I’m playing as a two-piece with a new drummer, Vinny Lariza. He’s really talented and adds a lot of energy to the performance. We played a few shows down in LA as a two-piece and they went really well so we figured we’d do the same for this show.”

Below, listen to both Parachutes of Plenty and the band’s eponymous debut EP (via Bandcamp), and get full details on Friday night’s show at The Night Light.
