You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's September 20, 2018 already.

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2017, Golden Shoulders played at a yoga studio in Manhattan, Kansas.

''But,'' you exclaim, ''I thought Golden Shoulders played at a used bookstore when they play in Manhattan, Kansas!''

And you're not wrong, friend, we do usually play at a used bookstore in Manhattan, Kansas. But since the bookstore burned down, and we subsequently performed in the local donut shop to mixed results, this time we figured it best to sing our songs in a yoga studio.

''But,'' you shriek, ''this makes it seem like you're just trying to play your music in whatever weird places you can find, without regard for your career!''

... You may be onto something. Now if you'll excuse us, we need to rehearse for our big show tonight in the old, abandoned hog fat rendering plant on the outskirts of town.

It's 2018 now. That seems so futuristic. Like we should be communicating through computers by now or something.

You can see our tour dates in that little box down there to the right; if we're touring, please come see us and bring a thousand friends. And suggest to your friends who live in towns where you don't live that they come see us too. If we have fun on tours, we'll tour more often. We're simple people that way. Other ways too.

Our latest full-length album (which shamefully came out years ago, but I promise we're working on new songs) is called "Get Reasonable," which is actually perfectly good advice for your day to day life. You are able to buy it from us or from Clocktower Records in Grass Valley, CA (if you live near where we live), or from iTunes. And we certainly hope you do.

Speaking of music accessibility, if you want to listen to most of our music from the past 16 years, you can get all of our recordings from the iTunes music store. Even the weird ones.

Questions and extravagant cash donations can be sent to You can find us on the once-popular Facebook internet service, if you're into that. Feel free to find us there. Be good!
