FRIDAY JULY 25
Black Ghosts and
Mighty: 119 Utah Street
SF/ 9PM/ 21+ up
Get ready for this very special evening featuring The Black Ghosts (Live) & Holy Ghost! (DJ Set) at Mighty.
The Black Ghosts lament through their perverse, personal pop music. Theirs is a peculiarly British noir, where the divorcee next door dreams of nocturnal visitations from predatory incubi, and an awkward boy genius tinkers with forbidden science in the garden shed. Unmanned Casio keyboards left for dead in the loft burst into requiems of their own composition, attractive cousins are murdered for what they know, and an unspeakable horror lurks in the depths of the spare room.
Meanwhile, Holy Ghost! have been the talk of the town for a while now, as part of the gigantic disco revival that is taking New York over at the moment (not that we're complaining, mind you). It seems like every cool new band's main references have shifted from the Velvet Underground and Joy Division to Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder, which is quite a breath of much needed fresh air.
