The Black Gold Experience

Our reader Jena asked for and got the tickets to see Black Gold at The Fillmore in New York City.

She wrote me after her experience:

What an amazing show! I knew I would enjoy it after your postings, I didn’t know anything else about them beside the song on SYTYCD. They are very talented and I don’t expect them to be opening for others for long. I met with Eric after the set and he was a sweetheart, of course I mentioned you and the site. He said that is so amazing and was so glad we enjoyed the show. I need to upgrade my camera for better pics but the VIDs are pretty decent. They played a brand new song for the first time last night called heaven come back. I wish they could have played longer.

She uploaded several videos and photos to Flickr so we can check them out.

Thanks Emilie for the Black Gold tickets. We made it to the Atlanta show last weekend and it was a lot of fun. Black Gold, the Young Veins, and Rooney have the perfect sound for summer! The music was exciting but also had a laid-back, rest-in-the-sun feel to it. The bands all put on a great show with a lot of energy! My only wish was that it was an outdoor venue – that would be icing on the cake. Readers – take advantage of the free tixs, it is completely worth it!

You can read about my experience here and don’t forget that there are some tickets available for Black Gold’s tour dates:

Sat 7/17 S. Hackensack, NJ School of Rock – I know a reader wants these tickets, but he needs to send me his name asap so I can get it to the Red Bull Records folks. Otherwise, it’s first come, first serve!

Sun 7/18 New Haven, CT Toad’s Place

Thu 7/22 Poughkeepsie, NY The Chance

Thanks, again, to Red Bull Records for making our Black Gold experiences possible.
