Ghost Concert Review, Austin, TX 05/01/2014

Three years ago I reviewed Ghost’s debut album.  When the second album came out, I found it almost non-listenable.  It sounds like circus music.  BUT…Ghost came to Austin last night and I decided to check them out.  I pretty much knew what to expect which was a bunch of kids wearing Ghost shirts and Xs on their hands.  The band is loved by kiddies/mallrats/hipsters.

They played well.  No gear onstage besides the drums.  The band is riding their schtick and they do it well.  Everyone in masks and robes and the singer in his pontiff gear and skull face.  The crowd loved it and Ghost is loving it all the way to the bank.  Good for them.  While I’d likely never go see them again unless they had a band with them that I liked, it was an enjoyable show.
