An excellent triple bill at Gold Diggers, this one. Local band Tashaki Miyaki formed in 2011 and very quickly found themselves getting some serious attention from publications across the pond such as The Guardian, NME and Mojo— the Brits know their stuff. Clearly influenced by the Laurel Canyon and later paisley underground scenes, The Dream album came out in 2017 and we’re hungry for more. Meanwhile, Taylor Locke will be known to many in this region as the co-founder of and guitarist with Rooney. The title of his debut Time Stands Still was inspired by Kim Fowley, so make of that what you will. Finally, North Carolina man Jake Troth specializes in lyrics that aim straight for the heart.
Tashaki Miyaki plays with Taylor Locke and Jake Troth at 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 23 at Gold Diggers.
