Another Oslo Psych Night is over, and another job well done.
Opening act tonight were Sofi Lofi featuring members of some of Oslo’s more prominent rock bands. A Sonic Youth inspired affair with some wild drumming to give it that extra kick. A nice opening act this evening.
sofilofi Vancouver B.C.’s own Dead Ghosts took the stage to a decent sized, but enthusiastic crowd.
These psych shows are becoming an Oslo “happening”, and the town finally seems to be taking notice.
Personally, I love going to shows where I don’t always know the bands that well. A good live performance is all you can hope for. Dead Ghosts are on Burger Records, so that was a good enough reason for me to show up. If you mix the psych sound of Cosmonauts, the twang of The Strange Boys and the energy of the Black Lips in a Canadian style sauce you get Dead Ghosts….sorta.
dg2 They blew through their songs at breakneck speed in what felt like under a half hour with two encore numbers. Highlights include “Summer with Phil”, “I want you back” and the very uptempo cover of Gun Club‘s “She’s like heroin to me”. The kids danced their ass off…and that’s all we want at a show right?
Welcome back to Oslo anytime Dead Ghosts.
