Concert | Ghostland Observatory | The Pabst Theater September 9th


Credit: Daniel Perlaky

Ghostland Observatory is a group best enjoyed live. Their shows are extravagant: lots of lasers, fog and their outfits are as loud as the beats (check that vampire cape).

Ghostland  make a unique blend of crunchy electro-dance rock that rockers can dance to and dancers can rock to.

The duo consists of Aaron Behrens on vocals, occasional guitar and general swagger and Tom Turner on drums, keys and synthesizer.

Formed in Austin, they are equally influenced by the blues and psychedelic rock of that area as well as early electronic music and disco.

They list influences like Bowie and Queen (Aaron is often compared to Freddie Mercury), but they also clearly appreciate the sounds of Daft Punk too.

Get there early to get a good spot and bring your dancing shoes. Also playing: Asher Diamonds of local DJ group The Glamour.
