Ed Note: Still riding the high from their network television debut on the “Late Show with David Letterman”, Spanish Gold found themselves at The Parish in Austin bringing their unexpected blend of throwback soul and Golden age hip-hop to the blue dot in the middle of the red state.
For 3 young guys this trio comes packed with a lot of veteran cred. All 3 have cut their teeth with internationally touring bands (My Morning Jacket, Grupo Fantasma, City and Colour) and that smell of we’ve been here before wafts around us these guys take the stage. It also helps to get the broth of anticipation boiling when their debut album South Of Nowhere has been met by critical acclaim by pretty much everywhere that’s written about it.
The beautiful part about a live show is once the band takes the stage none of the-build up matters at all. By the time Spanish Gold closed things out that night, hopefully on their way to get some fried avocado tacos, they had validated all of their hype, and made a few hundred new fans in the process.
