Over a year ago, I decided to check out Gold Motel at the Firebird on a whim and the Chicago band’s sun-kissed pop easily won me over. So when the band returned to record an interview and trio of songs for Gold Soundz, of course I jumped on the chance to capture their in-studio time at KDHX. Go forth and stream the performance and check out more pictures from the event after the jump.
I was still running on a few hours of sleep from the Big K.R.I.T. show the previous night, so the thought of back-to-back night concerts wasn’t super appealing to me on the drive over to The Firebird to see Gold Motel. Turns out, their show was exactly what I needed with a relaxed and intimate crowd and some sweet tunes.
