Supergroup Spanish Gold played to an impressive turn-out on a steamy Monday night at the Doug Fir Lounge on June 30, 2014. Wrapping up the final night in support of their debut album, South of Nowhere, Clear Plastic Masks from Nashville warmed up the diverse crowd with a magnetic energy and shout-outs to Spanish Gold and their first record. Rumor has it there's actually 24-karat gold pressed in the album. True gold or not, Spanish Gold—featuring My Morning Jacket's Patrick Hallahan, Dante Schwebel of Hacienda and City and Colour, and ex-Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada—put on a hell of a live show. We're looking forward to catching them at Pickathon!
