When I got home late Saturday night, I was still picking confetti off my jacket. That’s thanks to The Gold Web, who opened for GGOOLLDD at Empty Bottle with one of the most energetic and fun sets I’ve seen all year. They also had balloons, their own smoke machine, and some sweet jams to get the crowd feeling good. It’s been a long time since my last show of theirs, and I didn’t remember any of this stuff happening then.
The show is like a glam-rock odyssey, but I don’t know if that’s what they were going for. The lead singer/guitarist wore huge silver platform boots and a cape, while the keyboard/percussionist had a giant tentacle helmet. It was bizarre and cool and a hell of a good time.
