The Grinning Ghosts
Exuding a cool, garage pop sound that echoes bits of sunny indie rock in a lo-fi vein, the music of The Grinning Ghosts somehow betrays their gloomy, black and white album covers that take from classic films. Listening to the group's album Pastiche Depressionism, I can't help but be reminded of early Beat Happening, if Beat Happening used more fuzzy garage guitar and surf rock melodies. Calling themselves a scrappy rock n' roll band, The Grinning Ghosts are poised for more prominence in these coming months. These local talents are hitting Father's Pub tonight with fellow frenetic OC-based acts Bellhaunts, Bella Novela and The Kyms, for a hip-shaking, dancey feel good time.
