Holy Ghost! at Williamsburg Park, 7/24/2013 (more by PSquared Photography)
Holy Ghost!

Holy Ghost! opened for New Order last week at Williamsburg, and did pretty well with a big crowd I thought. Now that that show is over, Holy Ghost! will play to a somewhat smaller (but still big for them) audience when they headline Terminal 5 on October 31 as part of their fall tour. (Will they dress as ghosts for Halloween?) By that time, the band's new album, Dynamics, will be out on DFA. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/2) with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (7/31) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

"Juan vs. Juan"

In related news, HG's DFA labelmate The Juan Maclean, will be DJing this Thursday (8/1) at Manhattan club, Cielo. The night, a Nurvous + Rinsed event, is a bit high concept, as he'll be sharing the decks with Detroit techno legend Juan Atkins. That's two for the price of Juan! (And that's the only pun I will make in this post. Restraint!) The party also features opening sets from Dan Wender and Blacky II. Tickets are on sale now.

Its a shame the grandfather of techno can tell the difference between 331/3 and 45 when DJing.

what the fuck is with this trend of bands getting overly ambitious and headlining Terminal 5?

If only their music were as impressive as their vintage synth collection.

I had the misfortune of seeing Holy Ghost on wednesday, they reminded me of New Kids On The Block.

"Usually ... you can choose between two rooms, one of which is an older, gorgeous theater that sometimes has union help, or you can choose a venue that's sometimes owned by a promoter. And your earnings potential in those two rooms is incredibly different," she says. In New York City, Terminal 5, a 3,000-person venue, has an advantage over similarly sized local theaters. Because it's owned by a local promoter, Bowery Presents, much of the infrastructure — stage hands, lighting, sound, security, things a band would have to pay for elsewhere — is in place. This means, Barger says, bands "can make a higher percentage of the earnings in that one room than in any other room in NYC." So even if your favorite mid-sized band would prefer to play a larger venue, one with different acoustics, or one in a different part of town, Terminal 5 can be difficult to resist."

When they work, they are great. The whole album could have been better with a year and a half recording time.

I'm waiting for the time they came here in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil which is my town to see this show, I'm anxious, will they come here in Rio de Janeiro RJ?

So question, Are you a religious group or are you real followers of Christ? I only ask because I am a follower of Christ and would love to join the movement but only if you are legit!
