When The Donkeys played here in Bloomington last month, drummer Sam Sprague was nearly clean shaven. The beard you will see upon Sam’s face in the above video from an East Village Radio performance is a testament to the road work San Diego’s finest have put in this spring supporting their latest longplayer, Born With Stripes. Here in the East Village Radio studio, we get a minimal take on Born With Stripes‘ “West Coast Raga” with members Jesse Gulati and Antony Lukens trade shreds — on sitar and Rhodes respectively. It’s just a small dose of the joy these gentlemen bring to a stage.
The band has West Coast dates now-into-July, and will hit the road again in August to open for The Hold Steady. See all upcoming dates HERE.
