Cool Ghouls

San Francisco's Cool Ghouls, who pull from both the city's current garage/psych scene as well as its '60s Haight-Ashbury heyday, will be touring this spring around SXSW, making two stops in NYC: Union Pool on March 11 with Mystery Lights, Surfbort, and Acid Dad, and then Cake Shop on March 12 with a TBA line-up. All dates are listed below.

Cool Ghouls released their second album, A Swirling Fire Burning Through The Rhye, last fall which was produced by Sonny Smith. It's well worth checking out and you can listen (via Hype Machine) to the whole thing below.
