Concert Notice: Sugar & Gold to play free show at Jack Daniel’s Saloon

I came across this by sheer luck, but the very gay Sugar & Gold headlines a free concert this month at the Jack Daniels Saloon in the Gilley’s Music Complex. The San Francisco based band were last seen in these parts last June when they played Dan’s Silverleaf in Denton. I’m so glad they’ll be closer this time.

S&G follow in that same pop dance vein as Of Montreal and Scissor Sisters, but falls more into the “little brother” category of those bands — or should we say “little sister?” Reprising a late ’80s/early ’90s touch to their disco music, their sound isn’t so much challenging as it is kinda irresistible. Try not to enjoy their video below for “Stay Soft,” filled with a throwback of color explosion and kaleidoscopic imagery. Ridiculous, sure – fun, hell yeah.

Yip Deceiver and DJ Trademarx open the show. The show is scheduled for Jan. 29 and it’s free. Free I say. How can you beat that? It might get Guerilla Gay Bar up in Jack Daniel’s that night. Hope they’re ready for it. Doors at 8 p.m.
