Fool's Gold at the Mezzanine

Fool's Gold are a unique band from Los Angeles who combine many diverse strains of (mostly) African music, from the desert blues of Tinariwen to traces of Zimbabwean Chimurenga or Ethiopian sounds, with lyrics in various languages, primarily Hebrew. A real American band.

We shot this at the Mezzanine in San Francisco on May 26, 2009 when Fool's Gold opened for Sila & The Afro-Funk Experience, along with Diego's Umbrella. Enjoy.

Granted, delivery on this took two years (we are not only creatives, we have full time jobs and two businesses as well, so we tend to do what we can when we can.

We offer the first song, often if we think the band can be promoted, for free.

Sorry, Fools Gold, that we took so long to get to this. Now that you are big stars, you can be nostalgic about the good old days.

Would be nice to know that the 17 views the first night were from you (no one else knew it was uploaded) because we used that as confirmation that you wanted it on youtube for others to enjoy.

Let us know if you can sign a written release in place of your verbal one... We'll need it to put your song on a compilation set of artists we've shot and to sign up for pay of any earned royalties .

Let us know if we need to resend!
