Here at City Paper, we like us some Extra Golden. At least that’s how it seems, looking back into the archives. There’s a feature, a blog post, or a review dedicated to just about every stage of the bi-continental afro-rock band’s existence. With good reason, though. With its members split between Nairobi, Kenya, Chicago, and DC, Extra Golden tends to make a more interesting than, say, your average gang of suburban jangle-rockers. Not to mention, it’s one-part local. We have to cling to what we’ve got these days.
Extra Golden will be performing tonight at Comet Ping Pong, and instead of writing some pithy preview, I’ve opted to create a Washington City Paper/Extra Golden primer of sorts. Links below.
