If you have ever wondered what a poppy-folk band with a punk-like attitude would sound like, look no further than Origami Ghosts! This Seattle band has been making happy music together since 2004 and like a fine wine has just gotten better with age. Origami Ghosts have not confined themselves to “classic” folk or rock instruments. They include a cello, an accordion and a synthesizer on many of their tracks giving each song its own special edge. Origami Ghosts is playing tonight with support from The Pilot Lights, Clearly Beloved, and Robert Deeble at The Comet Tavern so come by to hear some happiness!

While Family bands may have some crazy behind the scenes stories, they can create some of the most entertaining and impressive music for your listening pleasure. The Partridge family, The Osmonds, The Jackson 5, and now The Campbell Brothers: Sacred Steel are just some of the family bands that everyone knows or should know. The Campbell Brothers consist of pedal steel guitarist Chuck Campbell, lap steel guitarist Darick Campbell, electric guitarist Phil Campbell, drummer Carlton Campbell, and lively gospel singer Katie Jackson. Come to The Triple Door tonight to listen to The Campbell Brothers’ energetic and bluesy spin on African-American gospel music.
