Gold Dust Lounge

Live on the Plaza

Concerts & Performances, Events of the Week

Gold Dust Lounge is the uniquely Miami brainchild of guitarist-composer Russell Mofsky. His music is an amalgamation of his eclectic influences, ranging from surfy jazz to cool lounge noir and punk meets Americana — resulting in a sound that is energetic and eminently listenable. Arranged in a quartet featuring guitar, violin, bass and drums, no two Gold Dust Lounge shows are alike, which makes it such a treat for listeners.

Soundtracks for Imaginary Films
Gold Dust Lounge’s music recalls the films of Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch and Ennio Morricone. Their cinematic sound has been described as “mod exotica,” “surf noir” and “shoegaze Americana.”

Mofsky takes familiar sounds and references and bends them into something that reverberates with the wild and exotic. The inside of Mofsky’s head is like a tour of your cool neighbor’s garage, the one with the recording studio in it. There are guitars and amps, old skateboards and surfboards, Miles Davis albums next to those of Debussy and Sonic Youth, a console TV console once home to Gilligan’s IslandBonanzaHogan’s Heroes and Lawrence Welk, some Bettie Page pictures, fliers from an assortment of Brooklyn and Wynwood bars, a poster for A Fistful of Dollars and a roll-up movie screen that might have flickered with 16 mm scenes from Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women. Gold Dust Lounge’s self-titled album was nominated for Best Instrumental Album of 2019 by the Independent Music Awards.
