The Goldies are silver! The San Francisco Bay Guardian celebrates the 25th annual Goldies — if you're new here, that stands for Guardian Outstanding Local Discovery Awards — with a special issue celebrating nine emerging Bay Area artists and groups who're producing exciting, intelligent, provocative work. Gazing into our glittery crystal ball, we predict great things ahead for their careers. And that's not all: We also honor one veteran performer whose wide-reaching influence has been a beacon of inspiration for over three decades.
Join us and the 2014 winners Fri/21 at a GOLDIES PARTY  ($10 gets you all the Lagunitas you can guzzle!) benefiting grassroots arts and culture venue CounterPULSE . Wear gold, because it's time to shine!
