Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2006, Golden Shoulders played two shows in one night, like a bunch of total badasses. Here's how it went down:

Show #1 was at Marilyn's, at the corner of 9th and K in Sacramento. It was the two-man lineup of Adam and Jason, opening for legendary songwriter Jonathan Richman. We'd played with Jonathan a couple years before, and there was a very nice moment when his drummer, Tommy, asked me whatever happened to the girl who had been in the band the last time we'd had a show together. Anyway, the show went great, and Jonathan is always tremendous. He likes his opening acts to be pretty quiet, so our two-man style is pretty ideal. A great time all around.

Then Jason and Adam high-tailed it over to Old Ironsides, there at the corner of 10th and S, where we met up with Haas and Dave, and we played a headlining full-band noisy set. Show #2!

BOOM! Two shows, one night! Unprecedented rock 'n roll badassery.

James Brown heard about how hard-working we are (in terms of show business), and he straight up keeled over. Seriously, that's how he died.

We're responsible for the death of a legendary soul man.

It's 2019 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 is called "Could This Be the End," and it was released on September 13th. It's got 14 songs, and it's as upbeat and peppy as the title suggests. It's available from your local record store, the iTunes Music Store, the Amazon Music Store, Spotify, etc., etc. If you're looking for physical copies, this one is available as a CD and also an LP, and you can get those from us or from CDBaby. We hope you like it, on account of how long it took us to make it! Yikes. Ten years between albums, man. Unacceptable.

Really, if you want to listen to most of our music from the past 17 years, and we hope you do, you can get all of our recordings from the iTunes music store or on the popular Spotify music streaming service. 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!
