Athfest 2013: Ghost Owl scares up some awesome tunes!

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013 
Ghost Owl

Ghost Owl was up next, and I've got to say, I've already heard tons of buzz about these guys. Composed of former members of Perpetual Groove, this new incarnation has only been around for a few months, but you'd never know it.  These guys were all set to blow us away!  As they prepped for the show, blasts of noise issued from the stage giving me little doubt that what to come was going to be quite an experience.  And what an experience it was!  Massive and commanding beats joined the keys and some rare, awesome vocal harmonies to create a rad bit of an electronic jam vibe. My friend Andy remarked that these songs would be perfect to intro a video game, and I totally agree.  Their tunes just oozed power, and the crowd ate it up.  Some of their fans were so immersed in the music, they even seemed to enter into an enthusiasm-fueled trance.  But they weren't the only members of the crowd who fell under Ghost Owl's spell.  One of the band's songs had a bass track so intense, the whole audience just had to groove along.  What a wild show!  I can't wait to catch these guys in action again.
