Gold Connections with Victoria Victoria and Cactus Black

Special Event, Rock

Gold Connections Gold Connections' Will Marsh went to school with Car Seat Headrest's Will Toledo at the College Of William & Mary, where longtime friend Toledo produced and recorded Marsh's debut S/T EP last year on Fat Possum Records. Through support tours with Car Seat Headrest, opener slots with bands such as The Districts, Futurebirds, Soccer Mommy and even a tour through Europe culminating with a showing at the esteemed Primavera Club festival, Will Marsh & Gold Connections have built a solid foundation for their upcoming full length effort, Popular Fiction, which was engineered and produced at Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium in North Carolina. The new LP, Popular Fiction is a steady piece of reassurance and we are thrilled to hear how far Will Marsh has come. And we can see, with total clarity, just how far he can go. Victoria Victoria Victoria Victoria is a North Carolina band based out of Winston Salem. A mix of synthesizers, keys and sultry vocals makes for an enticing soundscape that nods to r&b and gospel music. VV is fronted by 23 year old Tori Elliott, who often pens songs of deep reflection sung over a groove worthy of a serious head bop. Their new single, Body Body, was released in June 2018. Cactus Black Cactus Black is a three-piece rock outfit from Winston-Salem, NC. They dabble in storytelling songs that incorporate a bit of folk, old-school country, indie and garage rock. Their first record, Las Cruces, was released in 2013, followed by "Midnight at the Crossroads" in 2017. They have two new releases they are celebrating in 2018: an EP titled "No Accomplice" that captures a more stripped down version of the sound, and a live 7" that brings the noise. They are generally accompanied by their faithful friend Gato.
