The adventure of the Gold Hill Inn

gold hill

It was the first decent snowfall of the year.  We had a gig booked up at the Gold Hill Inn, a tiny mountain venue about 20 min drive from Boulder: all should have been easy.  However, our singer and Colorado ski addict, Colin Kelly was stuck in the dreaded I-70 traffic.  No big deal, he would get there on time.  40 minutes past our start time, Colin bursts into the door to cheers from the whole place.  Crashing his car into a ditch, and hitchhiking the rest of the way there, disheveled, Colin grabs the mic and puts on a blistering set.  Good friends of ours helped tow his car out afterwards.  Twas a good night.

We’re happy to report that our latest EP “Into Frames” which Colorado Music Buzz called “Colorado’s strongest psych-rock mashup album of 2015″ has been licensed for use by MTV, E!, and the Discovery channel.  So this winter, maybe don’t skip over that trashy TV show.  You never know if an Augustus song will pop up!

“It’s just absurd that the majority of this album was tracked live with minor overdubbing”

Augustus-IntoFramesEP-Cover

That’s a quote from the latest issue of the Marquee Magazine.  The Marquee is monthly publication about all things music in Colorado and they just reviewed our second EP, “Into Frames.”  They called it “wonderful” and said that it’s “..an excellent blend of tunes and an album that deserves and uninterrupted listen.”  They gave it 4 out of 5 stars! Check out the full review right here, and be sure to pick up a copy of the Marquee every month to stay on top of Colorado musical happenings.
