Tonight’s Feature Band:
“In the last couple years, Bear Ghost have emerged as one of the top bands to catch live in the Valley. Since they released their debut EP, YourParents Are Only Marginally Disappointed in Your Musical Taste! in 2014, they have been blowing minds at venues all over town. I only caught up to them last year, but it appears I was just in time to catch some of the most entertaining live shows around locally. An electrifying set that includes not only their originals, but also covers of classic Queen and a handful of Disney songs (that’s right, Disney songs). These shows sold me on Bear Ghost, while making their new full-length Blasterpiece one of my most anticipated albums of the year.
Bear Ghost is Ryan Abel on guitar and vocals, Andrew Heath on bass and vocals, Myke ButtonZ on drums and Thomas Knight on guitar, keyboard and vocals. Together they have created one of the most unusual indie rock sounds around, not just in Arizona—anywhere. They combine elements of prog rock, indie rock, a little bit of punk, a touch of hip hop, some electronica and mash it all together to produce a consistent sound that is wholly their own. They make music that is decidedly fun. It’s fun to listen to and fun to watch. This energy goes a long way. When they put on a show, they actually put on a show.”
