You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's August 18, 2017 already.
August 17, 2017

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 1958, Belinda Carlisle was born. She is one of two Go-Gos I am interested in romantically. The Bangles have only one member who meets my lofty standards, while the classic lineup of En Vogue has three. In summary, the Greatest Bands of All Time, in order, are: En Vogue, the Go-Gos, and the Bangles. Thank you.

It's 2017 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 15 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!
