Ropes That Way

LIVE MUSIC: Dirty Ghosts @ Comet Ping Pong - 4/21/12

In this age of information overload, it is rare to see something new, to feel like you’re among the first to appreciate “the next big thing.”  Indeed, even if you’re a serious music snob, by the time you’ve heard of something its probably been leaked, listened to, blogged about, analyzed, dismissed, defended, and remixed by every corner of the Internet.[1]  Dirty Ghosts are no different.  Over the past few months, their excellent debut album, Metal Moon, has been a hot topic of discussion and frequent praise among the Internet cognoscenti, their latest video debuted at Consequence of Sound, and they were coming to DC (nearly) fresh off of a six(!) show run at SXSW .  So yeah, they weren’t exactly “under the radar”…or so I thought.
