Looking for even more proof that San Francisco's scene isn't dead? Look no further than Cash for Gold.

Cash for Gold moves fast. Started on a whim in 2013 and put together, like, really not that long ago (by which we mean earlier this year), Cash for Gold have already crafted their first full-length, Swan Dive, set for release on October 14th on Breakup Records. A sloppy-fun ride that serves as a fitting soundtrack to C4G's home turf of the Tenderloin, Swan Dive is rich in exceptionally singable, '90s-rock-radio hooks, and minor-key verses that give way to upbeat choruses. Check out the first two tracks, "Out All the Time" and "Sunshine" here (and click through to purchase the god vinyl version on Bandcamp).



Cash for Gold will be at Slim's on the 16th for a release show with O, Taxes and Bed.

"Cash for Gold"

Cash for Gold, Swan Dive
BY JENNIFER OCTOBER 1, 2014 FEATURE
Cash for Gold are: Jordan Knight (vocals/guitars), George D’Annunzio (drums/back up vocals) and Stella Sue (bass/piano/back up vocals), and they are from San Francisco, CA. Swan Dive is their first record, and it’s a wild ride. A wild, glorious, ride.

This Out All the Time, the first song, which starts out with one of favorite things – big aggressive guitars – and then becomes a sprawling tale of love and self destruction.

This is Sunshine, which starts slow (well, slow-er) and rolls into my absolute favorite thing: a fast sea chantey hammer-stomp:



The rest of the record switches between dreamy saltwater-shoegaze (Keen, Mexico and Swan Dive) and jagged surf-infused punk (Cobra Fight, The Witches) and is in all ways awesome.

If you’d like to hear it live and in person: they’re having a record release show on Oct. 16, at Slim’s, in San Francisco. If I could be there, I would. Here’s hoping their future plans include coming east. - Now This Sound is Brave

Cash for Gold
If you like your indie rock served up with a spattering of surf and punk, then pay attention to San Francisco’s Cash for Gold. The trio are performing at Slim’s on Thursday to celebrate their debut LP, “Swan Dive,” which is available both digitally and on gold-colored vinyl.
Lineup: George D’Annunzio, drums; Stella Robertson, bass; Jordan Knight, guitar, vocals.
Was there a band you heard when you were young that inspired you to become a musician?
JK: Iggy Pop and David Bowie have been two people that inspired me then and continue to inspire me now. They represent a freedom in music to me to not be confined by any limit or boundary while creating or performing. It really bugs me when bands or individual musicians take themselves too seriously.
How does living in the Bay Area affect your music?

JK: This is a relatively small city that’s home to a number of wildly creative people. The Bay Area has a community of creative people who are generally supportive of each other and encourage good music. I also think there’s a certain grit that still exists in San Francisco, which strongly influences our writing. It brings out a somber, melancholy feel to our music.
How did you come up with your band name and what does it mean to you?
JK: My wife and I were playing around with a guitar and a lap steel one night. And after some whiskey and wine, we came up with the idea of Cash for Gold, a Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash cover band. That band didn’t last the night, but I liked how the name sounded kind of wistful but hopeful. So I adopted it for this new project.

Check it out: wearecashforgold.bandcamp.com.
Next gig: 8 p.m. Thursday. With Taxes, Bed, O. $13. Slim’s, 333 11th St., S.F. (415) 255-0333. www.slimspresents.com.
