Eight Gigs: Ghostplay
Fri., July 10, 8 p.m., Old Ironsides, $6
Dancy, experimental and dark, Ghostplay's sound can finally be appreciated through quality recordings with release of its debut EP 33 via local DIY label Noise Loves Audio. Do check out “New Monday,” one of the EP's five tracks that is already streaming online. It wears an '80s feel, with catchy guitar and droning, ambient, Joy Division-esque vocals. Definitely promising for the rest of 33. Bonus: The first 50 people to show up to the release show earn a free CD—sorry, the cassettes are for purchase only. Sacramento indie-pop band Silver Spoons and Oakland post-punk acts Mall Walk and Subculture are also on the bill. 1901 10th Street, www.ghostplaymusic.com.
