Goldfinger - Charlie - Allentown PA

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone that listened to Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger as a teenager. Myself and my compadre Tom Flott had an interview with Reel Big Fish lined up, and I knew that one way or another I had to also interview Goldfinger.

After the Reel Big Fish interview, we simply walked up to the other bus figuring it had to be Goldfingers, and sure enough it was. Charlie and Darrin of Goldfinger were cool enough to give us an unplanned tour bus interview along with complimentary beers. Neither Charlie nor Darrin were short on words, talking about the end of the world, Lady Gaga, Justin Beiber and all sorts of other crazy shit.

The show itself had a nostalgic vibe for those over the legal drinking age that were a part of the Ska-Punk rise over a decade ago, but it also had a high energy coming from those young and limber enough to withstand the sweaty mob scene in front of the stage. Check out the pictures and videos to see for yourself and catch the Summer of Ska tour when it comes through your area.
