Seattle duo My Goodness packs a punch with their limited stage setup. With Joel Schneider on guitar/vocals alongside drummer Andy Lum, joined by Cody Votolato on bass, what you see is what you get – stripped down rock with spirit. While setting the stage for Augustines at the Troubadour on Tuesday, it’s clear the heavy influences the band possesses by utilizing strong riffs, solid beats and dominating vocals.
When it comes to the “rock duo” drums/guitar formula, you sometimes feel you know what you’re about to hear even before a listen, then there’s this band. Pushing forth a sound that has both a hardness and just enough melodic composition to grab you, My Goodness makes an impression with what they produce on stage.
Currently on their North American tour, the addition of bassist Cody Votolato (The Blood Brothers, Jaguar Love) beefs up the sound even more and adds that much more to the live performance. Their set consistently kept the rock going, starting heavy followed by a bluesy breakdown mid set then right back up to high energy closing it out.
Definitely add this band to your must-see list. Keep an eye out for their fourthcoming album closer to Summer and check out http://www.mygoodnessmusic.com for upcoming tour dates.
