Goldroom Tickets

Goldroom Tickets - Goldroom Tour

Goldroom Has a Musical Midas Touch

When you think of Goldroom, you might not envision a live band, but Goldroom has a knack for proving people wrong. Initially known on the remix and DJ scenes, Goldroom has grown into a proven live performer with an eclectic mix of collaborators and a chillwave sound.

Band

To classify electronica renaissance man Josh Legg (also known as Goldroom) as a solo act or a band is putting it in a box that simply doesn't do it justice. While Legg makes up the core of Goldroom, he's also collaborated with several vocalists including Mereki Beach and Chela, as well as tour drummer Nick Sandler. His live band is ever evolving and he promises new "partners in crime" in the future. A much sought after DJ, he can be seen spinning records in clubs literally all over the world, but his biggest success to date may be as a remix artist. His remix of Niki & the Dove's "Mother Protect" has attracted millions of views on YouTube, and he's released other popular remixes for acts like Alpine, Gigamesh, Penguin Prison and Poolside. Whatever incarnation you see Goldroom in, you'll definitely hear a heavy LA influence -- a new take on disco wave with a positive, chilled-out vibe.

Breakthrough

Goldroom announced itself on the scene with the early single, "Fifteen," featuring lead vocals by the talented Chela. Rising to number one on The Hype Machine charts, the song received over 300,000 plays on Soundcloud and was featured in "Pitchfork" and on MTV.com. The song has youth and a nostalgia for simpler times, while remaining very now.

Hit Albums

Following the success of "Fifteen," Goldroom packaged it with three other songs for the appropriately titled "Angeles" EP. Here, Goldroom announced it was nobody's one-hit wonder and was branching out with even more collaborations, like bringing on the vocals of Say Lou Lou on "Sweetness Alive." Following a successful tour, Goldroom created a follow-up EP, Embrace, with the title track becoming one of its biggest hits to date.

Trivia

Josh Legg started out a member of the synthpop band Nightwaves before going solo with Goldroom. Josh's first job was in sailing. In fact, he "grew up on boats" and his music often evokes feelings of being out on the open water. Not one to let others adrift, he supports up-and-coming acts with a label he started, Binary Entertainment. As for interacting with fans, when he's not playing clubs, Josh is busy sharing pics on Instagram. The name Goldroom may sound like a fantasy creation, but it's actually the name of Josh's favorite bar in his adopted hometown of LA.

Schedule

Goldroom is heading to venues across the U.S. as he continues to support his "Embrace" EP and roll out more incarnations of his live band. Following several DJ gigs in South America and Mexico, Legg's Goldroom arrives as a full-fledged band for several upcoming dates in the U.S., including major cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Boston.

Show Experience

Fans can expect a cool, warm atmosphere as Goldroom plays its chill-wave grooves and dream-like synths. More than just a laptop boy, Legg switches between keyboards and guitar as he and band mate Mereki Beach take turns on lead vocals. You'll hear all the big tracks and live versions of many of Goldroom's remixes.
