By Stu Kelly / May 19, 2023

Goose recently wrapped a massive Spring Tour 2023, one that included sold-out two-night stands at San Francisco’s The Warfield, Philadelphia’s The Met, and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. During that same tour, Goose also made their debut at Chicago’s recently opened venue The Shalt Shed with a two-night stand on April 14 and 15. Recently, at midnight to be exact, the band released a surprise album titled, Live at The Salt Shed which contains both performances from the band’s transcendent two-night soiree. The  official release also includes a never before heard 30-minute “Chicago Soundcheck Jam” which showcases glimmering elements of the original song “Eminence Front.”

Night one (4/14/2023) featured a roaring “All I Need” opener, followed by a warm take on the country-influenced tune “The Whales” which found its way into the always captivating “Earthling or Alien?” Additional highlights include “Hungersite” from the band’s renowned 2022 album Dripfield, and a mesmerizing rendition of The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows.” The following night (4/15/2023) showcased fan favorite “Echo of a Rose,” a delectable version of “Pancakes,” and a smooth take on “Slow Ready.” 

The band now has their eyes firmly set on a huge summer and fall, complete with sets at some of the largest festivals nationwide, including Chillicothe, IL’s  Summer Camp Music Festival (5/26-28), Rothbury, MI’s Electric Forest (6/25), Scranton, PA’s Peach Music Festival (6/29), Newport Folk Festival (7/29), Dana Point, CA’s Ohana Fest (9/30), Buffalo, NY’s Borderland Music Festival (9/15), and Live Oak, FL’s Suwannee Hulaween (10/26-30).
