While Gold Fields was here in the States in March, they've decided to come back to do a proper tour. They've also just recently released "Dark Again" (October 9th) ...
Before I get to the opening bands, I wanted to say that this was the first time I've been to a show at the Nether Bar. I've been to Mill City Nights (previously known as The Brick), which is the much bigger main stage. The bar, I would describe as the size of 7th Street Entry, but talking to the security people, they claim you can fit 300 people comfortably down there, so it's more spacious than 7th Street. Typical of these basement venues are unattractive pipes, discoloring walls, and unforgiving lighting.
FRIENDS BY FIRE
Gold Fields came on stage pretty late, and like their latest song, "Dark Again", the stage was in complete darkness, save for some tiny lights behind them. The photos turned out bad because there were no lights to work with.
As expected, they did "Dark Again" and "Treehouse" on their brief set… but I have to say that the highlight of the show for me (and everyone at the show) was their cover of Underworld's "Born Slippy."
Gold Fields are currently on tour in support of their latest single, "Dark Again." Look for their debut album, Black Sun, due out January 2013, on Astralwerks.
PS, Check out the brief interview with Gold Fields. I found myself hanging out with the entire band so I thought it would be fun to just record them for our podcast.
