Nocturnal Fest a few weeks ago was pretty ridiculous, it was my first time to attend and had a great time. It’s an hour drive from town in a hay field, which makes it feel like the good old days of raving. However the production is top notch, it is a very professional festival and the stage/lights/crew are more like ACL than the infamous Airport raves of the late 90’s. Crystal Castles played a solid high energy set that Ghostland tried to keep up with. The laser show was great as always and they dropped this track I have never heard before. It’s not the best but worth a listen.

Another Time, Another Place….. Ghostland Observatory’s Aaron Behrens is playing a solo set Tuesday July 21 @ Beauty Bar AustinMonday, July 20th, 2009
UPDATED REVIEW AND VIDEO
I caught Aaron walking into Beauty Bar last night by chance before his set, asked him what we were going to expect from him and was told we were in store for an acoustic country/blues set of tracks he loves to sing but doesn’t always get to play live. Talking to Aaron you realize he’s not just the Ghostland Observatory Electro-Rocker but he’s a Texan and country. Born in San Saba his rural roots are deep and for all of us Texas natives we too share a part of us that enjoys simple sometimes emotional folk music on some level. He’s a very talented vocalist and showed his range through about an eight song set of tracks that first perplexed then engaged a crowded Beauty Bar lounge. Many folks like myself were not sure what we were walking into but all left very happy we made a very rare solo show by Austin’s most loved frontman. A major shift from Whitewater Amphitheater’s laser electro Ghostland Weekend fest of only a few days prior. But that’s also Ghostland Observatory, Aaron and Thomas are down to Earth normal family men. We only usually see them as their onstage personas. Show was great see for yourself…
Still recovering from this weekend’s Ghostland New Braunfels Fest? Well buck up and get to Beauty Bar Tuesday for Aaron’s solo set. Should be interesting to say the least. I don’t have any other details about if he has new material or what but I’ll try to add a review to this post as an update.
I figured the first post should be Ghostland and this remix is not the greatest in the world but its GLO and Pharcyde two greats mashedup.
