The Men are playing, nuff said. But we’re also loving Dirty Ghosts, a band writing bee-boppy keyboard rock worthy of the soundtrack to Saved by the Bell, if that show was actually edgy or cool. Usually any new music that consists of white guy’s first name/last name spells bore-ing and I shy away, but Michael Rault‘s aight. He’s got the voice of a little baby angel for one, and knows how to write riffs and sing glowing, ethereal-like as if he’s George Harrison’s youngest nephew or something (or just someone influenced by Paul McCartney’s early solo stuff for that matter). He’s a pop song “maker”, if you will, and good at what he does– also he’s from Canada so that makes him slightly less offensive.

Instead, you’ll need PMA, advanced tickets, and whatever lies beyond this line.
