On Saturday night, Los Angeles’ Fool’s Gold (and Columbus ex-pat Brad Caulkins) returns to Columbus to play a show at The Summit. As discussed upon their previous visit, last year’s Leave No Trace was a quality sophomore effort. The band recently shot a new video for “The Dive” (above), one of my favorites from the album. Maza Blaska reprises their opening slot, and upstart locals The Beers are also on the bill. Cover is $8, show time is 9PM.

Friday was the last day of the amazing Music Week Columbus. This night I made it to all three venues to catch Audrey & Orwell, Maza Blaska and Moon High at Rumba, Phantods at Kobo and finally Town Monster at Rumba Cafe.
MP3: Fire To The Ground (feat. Matt Berninger)
On Friday night, The Summit will be graced by New York duo The Forms, touring in support of their new EP, Derealization. This is something of a “remix album,” except that the songs are all completely reworked/reimagined, and this work is done by the duo itself and not some random DJs. These reimaginations apparently lent themselves to collaboration, as the tracks include guest appearances from Matt Berninger of The National (see above), as well as members of Dirty Projectors, Shudder To Think, and more. The results are mostly breezy and danceable and stand on their own quite well.
The Forms will be joined at The Summit by Maza Blaska, RUMTUM (Shin Tower Music side project?), and Defense.
Fewer posters this week, so here’s an mp3 to make up for it. Don’t know why I slept on Way Yes previously. Good stuff.

It’s been three weeks since our friend Alix Reese was tragically shot in the neck while driving on the east side. Multiple fundraisers have taken place and the support for them has been and continues to be incredible. In yet another selfless effort to raise money for medical expenses, Jacob Wooten has gathered the help of 20 local businesses and musicians to release a special limited-edition record for Alix.
The album features 15 different singles, including unreleased tracks by Phantods, Winter Makes Sailors and Wing and Tusk. Only 500 copies will be made, and 100% of the sales will be contributed to the Reese family to help pay for medical bills. The album will be released July 2nd at KOBO. Bands on the album will be performing all night. Albums will also be sold Saturday July 3rd at Skully’s Music Dinner, with Mr. Fahrenheit and The Loverboys with special guest Phantods.
Other contributors to this album include The Compressions, Karate Coyote, Saturday Giant, Sleepers Awake, Way Yes, New City Gypsy, Maza Blaska, Stretch Lefty, LES Crew, Ghost Shirt, Old Worlds and Two Cow Garage.
