You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's August 24, 2016 already.
August 24, 2016

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2004, Golden Shoulders released their second full-length album, ''Friendship Is Deep.'' Their friends thought the first album was much better, which is why the third album was called ''Our Friends Can Eat It.''

It's 2016 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 14 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!
