Golden Triangle sounds like reverb-drenched distorto girl group pop, and they’re getting a rep with their brain melt-down live shows. Every band passing through New York wants to play with them—King Khan and the Shrines say they were the best band they've seen in America at a recent show—and in less than a year's existence they've played with Black Lips, Deerhunter, Atlas Sound, Jay Reatard, Awesome Color, King Khan and the BBQ Show, and have toured the country 3 times supporting Quintron and Miss Pussycat and King Khan and BBQ Show. Within their first year they have released two 7 inches, two 12 inches, and 2 cassettes—all of which have sold out almost immediately.
In addition to playing the Bull Moose/Covert Curiosity party, Golden Triangle will be battling it out at Dickies' Battle of the Bands, who supplied the description above. On Friday, March 20 from 1-6pm at The Compound, (1300 E. 4th St.,) eight of the best unsigned, independent bands around will compete for a $10,000 prize. There will be free beer, free BBQ, free clothes from Dickies, and free entry with an RSVP to Battle@Dickiesupstart.com. More info is here.
Though the latest Golden Triangle release is sold out, you can pick it up digitally from emusic. Here are two songs from that, along with some live Golden Triangle action courtesy of VBS.tv. For the full effect, come watch them at our party at Aces Lounge.
