Goldenboy playing four LA area shows this June/July

Indie rockers Goldenboy may have recently finished a lengthy tour across the US, but Shon Sullivan and company are already aching to get back onstage to play again. They’ve booked four shows in the LA area for this June and July.

GOLDENBOY DATES
6/10 – Hotel Cafe w/ Atlantic/Pacific – Los Angeles, CA
6/11 – Moon Block Party – Pomona, CA
6/17 – The Press w/ Atlantic/Pacific – Claremont, CA
7/16 – Smiley’s – Bolinas, CA

Goldenboy will be playing on June 10th at Hotel Café and again on June 17th at The Press restaurant, supporting Alantic/Pacific, a rising band on No Sleep Records.

Then, on June 11th, Goldenboy will take part in the first-annual Moon Block Party in Pomona. As the event’s official Facebook page details, Moon Block Party is a FREE non-profit outdoor art and music festival to benefit THE SCHOOL OF ARTS in Downtown Pomona’s Arts Colony. There will be a ton of bands playing, including our eenie meenie friends, spacey synth pop trio Halloween Swim Team. Also, food trucks, DJs, live art, vendors, people and fun. Don’t miss out!

On Saturday July 16th, Goldenboy will hit the stage at Smiley’s Saloon in Bolinas. The long-lived Smiley’s is both a music hall and hotel that looks like a pretty sweet place to take in a show or spend a weekend.

Be sure to catch at least one of these shows, as all four of them look to be pretty special events!

Goldenboy: new dates and video blogs!

Hey folks!

So, the crazy bubble of SXSW has popped, and we have all returned to life as normal. Goldenboy played a showcase at Esther’s Follies, which is usually a comedy theater house, so a special thanks to everyone who came out at 1AM! Goldenboy sounded amazing, their set was impressive and great fun! They are super talented! But it was only one stop on Goldenboy’s current tour, which finds them tonight at The Colonial Tavern in Fredericksburg, VA!

After that, they’ll be making their way up the coast, hitting up Garfield Artworks in Pittsburgh with The Cloud Nothings on 4/5, and stopping at Santo’s Party House and the Rock Shop in NY (4/3 and 4/4).

And, as usual, the band has kept us very informed on their renegade rock star road life through the use of their video blogs, which we have conveniently linked to below, so enjoy! Thanks, Katy and Nicole!

Hope to see you at the show!!

Sleepwalker video up…check it out!

Here’s the new music video from Goldenboy’s third album, Sleepwalker!! Hope you enjoy! There’s a cool explanation of where the footage is from below….

Here’s the interview from Spinner.com, where the video was the featured video of the day:

“This is one of those rare occasions where the video came first, inspiring the song,” Goldenboy’s Shon Sullivan tells Spinner. “A couple of years ago I spent a summer at a friend’s house in Faenza, Italy…Being the perpetual super-snooper that I am, I had to go through everything. Off in one corner I found a canvas sack with a bunch of film tins that still had actual 16mm film in them, along with a home movie projector.”

“I brought them back to the house and played them. Most of the films were too oxidized from time, but then there was this one that had these two kids by the seaside, with seagulls, starfish and waves. It immediately took me back to my own childhood of camping on the beach and making friends for a day with people you would never see again.”

“There was no sound with the film but if you put your head really close to the projector, like when you put your ear next to a seashell to hear the ocean, the click, click, click of the turning film reels made a looping sound sequence that I tried to duplicate on the keyboard, along with musical swells for ocean waves.”
