Ghostland Observatory glams up the Mid-Atlantic

This is a band not to be missed. I saw them as a fill-in for someone at the Austin City Limits festival in September and instantly became a fan. I even picked them as my favorite performance of the weekend. Now it's time for the Northeast to experience the glory of Ghostland Observatory. They mix electronic beats a la Nine Inch Nails and New Order and the glam/hair metal heyday of the 70's and 80's. Lead singer and guitarist Aaron Behrens is a prowling tiger on stage, doing his best Freddie Mercury impersination, while electronics and kit master Thomas Turner lays down the groove, usually decked out in a full length pale blue cape. Nothing can really prepare you for the show you will experience, but I am sure that you will have a time that you will never forget.

4/16: DC @ Rock and Roll Hotel
4/17: Philly @ Northstar Bar <-- I'll be there.

Best Won't Do
Piano Man
Sad Sad City (live @ SXSW)
