Austin Music Minute

San Antonio By Sundown

Posted by on Aug 7, 2020

The Golden Roses are aching for those dance floors, with all the people stepping in time. The band keeps its philosophy simple: “We play, y’all dance.” And that’s how it happens.

Their music is a badass honky-tonk hodgepodge touched by lots of good stuff: Country, western swing, a bit of rock and a sprinkle of bluegrass. The Golden Roses have lit the stages of many an ATX hot spot, from The Broken Spoke to Ginny’s Little Longhorn, as well as many cool places in Nashville and Chicago.

Though they’re unable to perform to a packed room at this time, The Golden Roses are celebrating the release of their new single “San Antonio By Sundown” (featured on today’s AMM) with some help from South Austin dreamy dancehall Sagebrush – and a major shout-out to Denis O’Donnell for keeping the magic alive online. Check out The Golden Roses live stream release show at 8 p.m. Central tonight, Friday August 7, on the Sagebrush Facebook page.
