It's hard to pinpoint exactly when it happened, but at some point in the past year Solid Gold went from just another band playing gigs at the Hexagon and Turf Club to becoming the kind of band that sells out every single show they play. And why wouldn't people cram in like sardines to see this band? Their dreamy, chilled-out electro pop makes even the geekiest person in the room feel cool, and the guys have put in a lot of hard work to get to where they are now. Their first headlining show at First Avenue tonight is another big step in this band's upward trajectory, and given the fact that they are paired with another band-on-the-rise, Lookbook, tonight's show should be one for the history books.
Solid Gold play with Lookbook, Marijuana Death Squad, and DJ Real Jaguar tonight at First Avenue. 18+. $10. 8 p.m.
