Creative visionary Chase Jarvis is infamous for finding fellow innovative artists across various mediums of art and entertainment, and aiding in propelling many of them to new levels. This influential tastemaker introduced his audience early on to current multi-platinum selling artists like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and The Lumineers, and this upcoming Wednesday, April 3rd, Jarvis will invite another artist to his show who are poised to follow in his previous guests’ footsteps, Seattle duo My Goodness.
The theme of this Wednesday’s show is, “The Irreverence Episode (aka NOT GIVING A F#$%)”, a concept that this duo is perfect for, as they are described by Jarvis as, “Drums, guitars, and some heavy vocals…it’s garage punk Black Keys on fire.” Additionally, Crave Online recently raved, “Spin the volume knob on this one, ’cause “quiet” is only for those who can’t handle this kind of ass-kicking.”
Fans of My Goodness can go to this link in order to be entered in to win one of only a few limited pairs of tickets to this extremely exclusive taping. For additional information on the show, please visit http://bit.ly/104u7Wh.

Somehow straddling the line between raw and refined, My Goodness doesn’t sacrifice technical precision in the name of punk rock: They strive to marry both. Though the band is only two men strong, with Joel Schneider on guitar and vocals, and Andy Lum playing drums, the duo’s energetic music proves that in their case, less is definitely more. Although their live shows are performed predominately in the Pacific Northwest, and the band was essentially on hold for the majority of 2012, the recent addition of Andy Lum on drums has helped My Goodness find a renewed purpose, with the band ready to move forward with a heavier, more aggressive sound. The band has released two tracks thus far this year, the first being the explosive “I’ve Got a Notion”, and the second, “Cold Feet Killer”, which premiered on Vevo to an amazing response, garnering over 30,000 views within the first 24 hours.
The duo are currently recording a full-length record at Seattle’s London Bridge studios with esteemed Seattle producer Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam, Temple Of The Dog, Blind Melon).
