Ghost Gum

New 4-way Split Release Feat. Mumblr, Ghost Gum, Clique & Loose Tooth Available for Streaming

Three Man Cannon on Display at KFN Feb. 1

Three Man Cannon's Matt Schimelfenig had his hands in the production of some of our favorite albums last year like Cayetana's Nervous Like Me and Cave People's Older. Tonight, his band's own music will be on display in the upstairs of Kung Fu Necktie. Three Man Cannon also impressed with their own LP, the emotive and introspective Pretty Many People (Lame-O Records). It's been a moment since we've heard new material from the Scranton transplants so hopefully they've been hiding out in the studio taking advantage of their bandmate's multi-faceted skills. Joining them on the bill this evening will be local shoegazers Ghost Gum and NYC's Painted Zeros and Bethlehem Steel. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman


Ghost Gum Opening for Literature at JB's Oct. 21

There’s something to be said for the ability to bridge a gap, and Ghost Gum, opening this evening at Johnny Brenda’s, finds a way to do just that. Merging a constant, driving, spatially aware, shoegaze-y instrumental setup, throbbing bass lines, smash-spreading percussion and those slithering guitar licks, all accented by Carolyn Hayes’ calm guiding vocals. The music absorbs into you, in a peacefully tenacious manner, moving at a high-end pace but finessing each turn with an experienced approaching, while cruising at full speed. The dance exciting new-wave nodding Royal Shoals, whose sound pulls pieces from across a wide board, serves as the filling of tonight's local musical sandwich with headlining act Literature's nonstop, jangly burst of power pop keeping you on your feet at JB's all night long. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Drift Into an Alternative Perspective w/Harsh Vibes at Bourbon & Branch June 13

The week’s complete. Bourbon & Branch offers the opportunity to dislodge from the grind and drift into an alternative perspective via the vessel of Harsh Vibes. Stretching out the jams and engulfing you in layer upon layer of hypnotic noise, each movement interlocking with the next, rocketing farther out than expected and exhibiting a cumulative directional strength without becoming forceful because once the ship gets going, you can’t help sitting back and handing over the controls. Helping the gradual shift to the space-drifter paradigm, shoegazers Dreambook has an affinity for distorted guitars, longingly reaching toward the abyss while the backend determines/implies a sense of urgency. The vocals supply a dream-like yet dreary internalized echo. A little closer to the surface rests the shoegazing pop-punk assemblage of Ghost Gum, as Carolyn Hayes’ vocals cut through the cosmos, and Chicago’s Crown Larks round out the evening. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Ghost Gum, Leaky Soups Play Golden Tea House April 9th

Who said the middle of the week can’t be fun? Tonight the Golden Tea House welcome five heartbroken bands to entertain us with shadenfreude as we usher in the weekend. Headlining the evening are the punk crooners and Tea House regulars Leaky Soups featuring the totally cool Cullan Bonilla on vocals and assorted stringed instruments. The gem of the evening should be a set by the grungy Ghost Gum. Coming off the release of their bite-sized demos in February and led by Catnaps’ Carolyn Haynes, these shoegaze rockers are going places. You can also catch two out-of-towners, the deep-voiced Tyler Daniel Bean from Burlington and Portland’s The Hague. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue.), 7:30pm, $5, All Ages – Maggie Grabmeier
