You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's July 21, 2017 already.

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2003, Golden Shoulders played a show with the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. We were excited about it because they'd been on Conan O'Brien's Late Night show. They said we were the best band they'd played with on their entire US tour. And then we took them for breakfast at Ike's Quarter Cafe in Nevada City the next day. They said it was the best food they'd had on their entire US tour.

You know, maybe they're just nice people who like paying generous compliments every chance they get.

Or maybe Golden Shoulders and Ike's are just that good.

... They are probably just nice people. Ike's is really good, though.

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!
