Goldfinch: KUPS In-Studio Performance

We’re all set up to head over to KUPS 90.1 in Tacoma in a couple weeks to play some live music and engage in witty banter (with just the right amount of raunchiness, you know us). Rumor has it that our new song will be all polished up by then and ready to play. You can tune in on February 28th at 1 o’clock to hear us and, in the mean time, call (253) 879-3267 or send an instant message to KUPS DJ to request songs off of our record.

Goldfinch Goes East: Birds on a Wire Festival & The Red Room

Yes, all the way to Pullman, Washington. On March 26th/27th Larson Hicks of Stereopathic Music presents Birds On A Wire, a folk music festival all the way the heck in Pullman. We hear amazing things about Larson, and have been hoping to head out East to join one of his amazing bills for a while now. Here’s what Sound On The Sound has to say about Larson & the festival: “Happening March 26th and 27th and taking place on three stages within walking distance of each other on Pullman’s main street, the festival is an outgrowth of a series of Birds on a Wire shows Hicks did last year with some success, which itself was…

Goldfinch Collaborates with MLK Ballet

It’s true! We love MLK Ballet and their tuition-free dance classes. Several times a year they put on a weekend of performances and we’re honored that they’ve chosen two songs from the Goldfinch album (and one that’s never been played in public before!) to choreograph new dance pieces to. We’ll be playing live at each of these special performances in March and you’re invited to join us.

Goldfinch: New Year’s Eve In Tacoma

Goldfinch in December

poster by Chloe Scheffe Happy December everybody! Remember this time last year when we were putting together our Christmas party at New Frontier in Tacoma? Remember the huge blizzard that night that we were so sure would scare you all away? Remember how all at once folks came sledding, skiing, snowboarding, and bussing down from the hill to join us till we had a nice sweaty bunch of friends to sing along with, eat cookies, and drink toddies? That was one of our favorite shows ever and it’s amazing to think how much the next year brought for us finches. We made a record! We became a full band! We wrote a lot of songs!…

Goldfinch in Sonoma

A new friend of ours made this poster for our tour last weekend down in Sonoma and we snagged a couple copies of it for our collection. The Spaghetti Shack was all kinds of fun and dancing and Sonoma might just be the nicest, friendliest town we’ve played in a long time. We love posters, and the fine people who make them. Thanks Peter Berkley!

Goldfinch at The Tractor Tavern

Yes, it’s true. Us finches are heading up to the Tractor Tavern again to play a set along with Tacoma artist Vicci Martinez and her band. Last time played the Tractor it was a Tuesday night in the middle of that wretched heat wave night and you all showed up in force anyway. We can’t promise buckets of sweat or midnight ocean swimming this time, nevertheless, it’s going to a whole different kind of fun.

Goldfinch plays Motopony’s Cd Release in Tacoma

There’s lots of lovely handmade stuff in Tacoma. We like handmade stuff, and all of these bands have a special place in the collective hearts of the Finches. Motopony (featuring our friends, Daniel Blue and Josiah Sherman, who incidentally played keys on our record), Barton Carroll (who also played on our record), and Indian Valley Line (our good friends, tour sharers, and booking agency roster mates) are all teaming up to kick off one very labored over and very sweet release party. It’s at Urban Grace. It’s ten bucks. Tickets are on sale here at Brown Paper Tickets. These posters are hand designed and hand pressed onto fancy old fashioned recycled cotton paper and they’re…

Goldfinch at The Comet

We’re going to be headlining for the first time in Seattle on November 6th at the Comet. And this poster will be all over town soon.

Goldfinch in October and November

Dear Friends, Fans, Family, and Folks, The fall is off to an awesome start for us Finches! We’re playing more and more (as usual) and had a sweet little weekend tour to California. Much, much thanks to all of you for your support and love, especially to our friends in the band Indian Valley Line for hosting us in California and to our bass player, Dennis Fisher, for a run of great shows together. That’s right, we’ve started on the path towards locating a new bass player and are looking forward to what the next few months will hold for us. Here’s the low-down on shows and happenings: OCTOBER 23rd: at The Green Frog with Big Sur…
