Tomorrow night at 9pm all card-carrying Santa Barbara and Goleta locs will have a rare opportunity to see one of their favorites perform. SB/Goleta bros Los Vikings XIII are holding their album release party at Roundin' Third, way out at 7398 Calle Real between Glen Annie and Winchester Canyon. The show will likely consist of two one-hour sets.
Los Vikings XIII is the country collaboration between guitarist/vocalist Eric Dyrenforth (San Marcos '94) and drummer Brian LeBlanc (Santa Barbara '96). Dyrenforth's recent projects include jazz standards as Don Francisco de Goleta and "unsophisticated jazz" with his band The Double Zeros. LeBlanc is the well known leader of local thrash heroes Civil Unrest. Los Vikings XIII plays original songs as well as American folk classics like "Wreck of the Old 97".
The Santa Barbara Man About Goleta has learned from Strickley Lokes, Esq. that the album is "some seriously essential shit, a bona fide piece of Santa Barbara music history that the true SB loc will feel spiritually moved to add to her or his collection, so bring cash, motherfuckers." Not wanting to give too much away before the big night, Lokes also said the album itself is part music and part art piece.
While Los Vikings XIII does not expressly forbid transplants and stus from attending, the hardest of their hard core fans have been known to react viscerally to gentrifiers. The Santa Barbara Man About Goleta implores anyone who did not attend high school locally to employ the phrase "I'm down with Foothill School" in the event of a kerfuffle.
