Chicago magazine | March 2012
Sometimes a story’s timing is perfect. Other times you have to wait for it. I came across the Chicago band Gold Motel not long after its first album debuted, and then I spent the next year and a half hounding the group’s publicist, waiting for a fresh news peg. This article, timed to the release of the group’s second album, went to press just before Gold Motel appeared in Super Bowl commercial. Not bad for anticipating what’s next.
