How did you wind up in San Francisco?
Our parents dropped us off in the Mission because they were tired of our whining. Now we live in Los Angeles and Athens, Georgia. Ain't nuthin but a bi-coastal schizophrenic funk party.
How did you get started making music as Sugar&Gold?
We started as a three-piece called Silva n Salt n Peppa, but through some refinement turned into just Sugar&Gold.
How do you get voted "best local dance band" in a city rotten with dance bands? What's your secret?
What are your songs about?
Vegan cake and over-eating.
What do they sound like?
BAM! POW! ZAP! BIFF!!
What have you learned about playing live from Of Montreal?
Love will conquer all.
What are your favorite venues to play in San Francisco? Why?
Rickshaw Stop becuz it's all ages and has dynamite sound. Plus everyone that runs it rules!
What can we expect from this show? Are you going to change costumes between sets to indicate that Sugar&Gold and Yip Deceiver are two different acts, or what?
It's easy to tell us apart: Yip Deceiver will be wearing lederhosen flanked by German shepherds, and Sugar&Gold will be donning the more traditional attire of ancient Celtic muumuus with propeller hats. It should be a fun show!
