You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's September 19, 2018 already.

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2017, Golden Shoulders returned to Fort Collins, Colorado (after an 11 year absence!) to play songs. The thing you need to understand about Fort Collins is that it's very much like the high school depicted in the popular film Dazed & Confused; we get older, the people of Fort Collins stay the same age. So while our 2006 appearance in Fort Collins was greeted with enthusiastic cries of ''these contemporaries of ours have some dynamite songs*!'', our 2017 show in that same lovely city was met with exclamations of ''why is this gray-haired old man screaming about honey, power, and light? Is he having some sort of brain episode?''

*This is how people talked in 2006.

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!

We have played/will play shows:

Normally there'd be upcoming show information in this box, but we're taking a break from shows while the next album finally gets written. Maybe we'll see you in the summertime?
