Electric Guest at Velvet Jones

Los Angeles Retro Experimentalists Play S.B. on June 2


Last Saturday, the Los Angeles-based duo Electric Guest (Asa Taccone, Matthew Compton) took to Velvet Jones for a show in support of their recently-released album, Mondo. The band’s mix of retro soul, jangly hooks, and electro beats recently landed them a spot at this year’s Bonaroo Music & Arts Festival, as well as the upcoming Outside Lands festival in San Fransisco, CA. Below you’ll find a gallery of images from Saturday night’s Santa Barbara set.

Brooklyn quartet Hospitality opened the show.
