Ghostland Observatory + Shows in Boston This Week

I don't think that I've met anyone who doesn't love Ghostland Observatory. I mean, how could they not? Their music is an infectious amalgam of electronica and punk--heavy on the synth, canned beats, and frenzied vocals. The sound is equal parts Daft Punk and The Clash, though I've heard their live show leans more towards the theatrics of Freddie Mercury than anything else. The band only has a couple shows scheduled for the warm summer months, so I thought I'd post a ridiculous fan video to tide you over for the immediate future. Thank god for the highly entertaining combination of good music, crazy dancing cats, and YouTube right?

Aug. 5 -- Lollapalooza, Chicago
Aug. 19 -- McCarren Park Pool, Brooklyn
Sep. 16 -- Austin City Limits Festival, Austin
