Gold is playing the Commonwealth Bar on May 1:
We’re really excited about our latest show on May 1st; we’ve got 3 great Calgary bands Lab Coast, Gold and the Diet and Lethbridge’s best import since Pilsner, Fist City. Come out and support some great local talent and help us open our new patio, which weather permitting, will be the start of many great patio nights. Our friends from Gold recently lost a close friend and bandmate so we asked them to write something for you all. Please take a minute to read below and consider donating to the CJJ Reimer Memorial Fund.
The members of Gold wish to extend a special invitation to our performance on May 1st to all friends, family, colleagues and fans of Chris Reimer. Chris was a long time friend who also drummed with us for six months, making him an integral part of the development of our songs and our sound, and we were shattered by his passing on February 21st, 2012. We are pleased to be able to return to the stage and we want to take this opportunity to spread the word about the CJJ Reimer Memorial Fund: A non-profit organization that will raise money to provide youth scholarships in music and dance, and also to produce a release of Chris’ own written and recorded music. We will be accepting donations to the fund at the merch table throughout the evening, and we hope you can make it out to support us as well as our good friends in Lab Coast, Fist City, and The Diet – musicians who were all friends to Chris and who share our loss and our desire to pay tribute to him.
Check out the recorded track with our boy Chris on drums on Gold’s Bandcamp space.
