You're looking at the website for Golden Shoulders, a band from Nevada City, Calfornia. I'm sorry to say it's March 3, 2021 already.

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 1953, eccentric songwriter Robyn Hitchcock was born.

Here's a true story. When the first Golden Shoulders album came out, two different reviewers, while discussing the album, said something along the lines of ''the songwriter in Golden Shoulders must be a big fan of Robyn Hitchcock.'' But the thing was, the songwriter of Golden Shoulders had never listened to Robyn Hitchcock before, but seeing two separate reviewers make that assumption made him want to. So then the songwriter of Golden Shoulders listened to a bunch of Robyn Hitchcock, and became a big fan of Robyn Hitchcock.

''Thanks, you two reviewers from the year 2002!'' - the songwriter of Golden Shoulders, whose name escapes me.

It's 2021 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, 2019. It's got 14 songs, and it's as upbeat and peppy as the title suggests. It's available from your local record store, Bandcamp, 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 our Bandcamp merch page. 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 19 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!

We have played/will play shows:

We don't have any upcoming shows planned because we made an album called "Could This Be The End" and then the world was like, "yes." Once the end of the world is over, we think we'll play some shows again. Watch this space!
