STL GLD w/ Harsh Armadillo

Saturday, April 8th

Doors 8 / Show 9



Formed in 2014 by Moe Pope and producer The Arcitype, STL GLD’s powerful message and exhilarating live show has quickly earned them the reputation as one the most exciting bands to come out of New England.

On the surface, they are a Hip Hop band. However, through their captivating performances, STL GLD (pronounced STILL GOLD) blends elements of Hip Hop, Rock, Punk, and Cinematic Orchestra together for an unforgettable experience.

Because of this, STL GLD were crowned winners of “Live Artist of the Year” at the 2018 Boston Music Awards and “Boston's Best Band” by Improper Bostonian in the same year.

Their sophomore album 'Torch Song' (BMAs “Album of the Year” in 2017) paved the way for an exciting year for the band, getting to share the stage with the likes of Eminem, Khalid, and The Roots.

Their third studio album, ‘The New Normal’ continued the band’s evolution, allowing them to set new precedents by building collaborations with the Museum of Fine Arts and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

"Ultimately, The New Normal epitomizes deftly executed rap yet still relies heavily on the insular creative visions that STL GLD become synonymous with. Unveiling it at the Museum of Fine Arts was a move that made sense — the album is a masterpiece in its own right." - Candace McDuffie, Vanyaland

When the pandemic struck, the band was knees-deep into creating their fourth studio album. With the inability to share the same space together for some time, and the world changing around them so dramatically, so did their album. Inspired by the fierce and emotional determination exhibited by John Boyega following the murder of George Floyd, Pope found a kindred spirit in the actor, sharing the same anger and frustration with the world’s continual mistreatment of people of color. The toll this takes on his mental health became the centerpiece of this album, and the inspiration from Boyega fueled his will to fight for balance; the title ‘Rock Boyega’ was born.
