Vinyl Gold and Space Leech at McMenamin’s White Eagle Saloon

Vinyl Gold was pleased to have Jarred Venti sit in with us tonight on bass. Between a couple of early tunes, an audience member yelled out “that bass player is funky as SH*T!” So I guess we all know where Jarred stands with our fans! We really appreciated how quickly he picked up the material, his super friendly and professional attitude, and his funky and fantastic playing. I’m sure we’ll be seeing him again. (That’s him on the right)

Another crazy surprise was that Sarah’s sister Kim brought her a huge floral crown to wear during the show. Kim just opened her own floral design business called Hardcore Florist, and totally lives up to the name. If you can imagine it made of flowers, Kim can make it. There was talk of maybe doing a whole set design for us in flowers. Summer festival nostalgia, anyone?

After Vinyl Gold wrapped up, our friends Space Leech took the stage. They are a band that’s new to Portland, and really fun. Two Space Leech members are also in Vinyl Gold – Mark and Cam. We had a great time putting the two bands on one bill, and hopefully we’ll do it again, soon!

Vinyl Gold shows coming up!

We have a few shows coming up that will close out 2014! If you haven’t seen us yet, it’s a good time to come out and maybe bring those out of town visitors for a night of great music. We have a show this Friday, November 21st at The Thirsty Lion in downtown Portland. Then next week on the Friday night after Thanksgiving, aka Black Friday, aka November 28th, we’ll be lighting up The White Eagle Saloon with our crazy friends Space Leech! Then one last show of 2014 at Biddy McGraw’s on Saturday, December 6th! You can find all of these shows on our calendar here, or at www.reverbnation.com/vinylgold. Bring some friends and family along! Happy Holidays everyone, and thanks for your support.
