Ghostland @ Stubb's

That's right kids, Ghostland Observatory is coming home and they're playing a gig at Stubb's. Tickets went on sale about 2 hours ago, so if you want to catch this show you better hit this ticket link fast. The show is going to be on Friday, November 14th and the only way to get tickets is online. So don't harass the folks at Waterloo they can't help you B.

While I'm on the topic of live dance music in Austin, I neglected to mention in my last post that Girl Talk is doing a show at Emo's on Monday, October 20th. Tickets for that one are NOT available online and may only be purchased at a physical outlet. I think your best bet here would be to go to End of an Ear or some other less popular ticket outlet, like Run Tex

More Ghostland media after the jump...

You can stream some Ghostland from their website. Also, you KNOW how much I HATE when YouTube video are not embedable but you really should see this performance of Sad, Sad, City from the Austin City Limits show here. It should also be noted that you can buy the entire performance on DVD.

There is actually a lot of video available of Ghostland on YouTube but most of it is of sub-par/cellphone quality. So, my apologies for some of the craptastic quality here.

This video looks so ghetto and you can tell it's before GLO hit their stride. You can tell by Aaron's lack of braids and Thomas' lack of cape.

This song was the first (but not the last) Ghostland song that I dug:

I'm re-posting a song from above because the sound on the other one sucked and the video on this one sucks. But I want you to hear the studio version of this track cause it rawks:
