Golden Collective brings Winty Fresh show to Rockwater

Live, local music at the Rockwater and an upcoming show will be something you won’t want to miss.

Live, local music at the Rockwater may be a common occurrence, but an upcoming show will be something you won’t want to miss.

Golden Collective is bringing its third installment of a musical showcase they call Winty Fresh. It’s described as a perfect blend of minty fresh and wintery blues, with a packed line-up of local acts. It will showcase the talent the community has to offer the new, “minty fresh” people arriving for the winter season.

“At this time of season there are a lot of fresh people in town that have never been to Golden before so this will be an opportunity for new ears and new eyes to come see what Golden has to offer as far as the music scene goes,” event coordinator Pablo Euphoria said.

Euphoria thinks this show will be particularly interesting as they are meeting the new and the old together.

The event will feature acts from Mellie Jane, Carl Trinkwon & Masters of Nun, All Them Smyles, The Pickups, John Jenkins Smalltown Revival, The Slinkies and an open jam that will include everyone.

“This is the most stacked lineup we have so far, as far as quality of music,” Euphoira said. “It’s an evening to provide the locals with something that is from the locals.”

The show is aiming for a 7:00 pm start time with music going throughout the night ending at around 1:00 am. Entry into the show is free, but a donation is also appreciated. If you like live music, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

“It’s going to be a good night,” Euphoira said. “This is our third one and people are excited about it.”

Golden collective began approximately four months ago and is an open initiative for anyone that wants to bring any kind of art to the table.

“Right now it’s mostly music orientated,” Euphoria said. “We have local acts, live music from locals, by locals, for locals.”

Their first show was a 4/20 celebration on April 20 called Spring Cleaning. Their second show was in September and they hope to start putting on shows every one to two months.

“This is an opportunity for everyone to come together and share in a unified manner,” Euphoria said.

Music is a passion for Euphoira and he hopes to bring the joy of music to others.

“To me music is a lifestyle, not a job,” Euphoria said.

Winty Fresh is Saturday, November 25 at the Rockwater. Doors open at 6:00 pm with Mellie & Jane opening at 7:00 pm.

The Golden Collectives is an open initiative for members of the community to be involved in the arts. Currently they are mostly music oriented, but are always looking for new people with new talents.
