Eight Gigs: Ghostplay

Wed., Jan. 13, 8 p.m., Powerhouse Pub, no cover

Local post-punk group Ghostplay leads its listeners through a dark passageway of ethereal tones that echo with layers of reverb, synth, keys and intricately timed guitar melodies. Leticia and Jason Hess, recently married, make up the band along with beat keeper Armando Gonzales. In July of last year, the group released 33, featuring songs like “Science,” which lends a more post-punk feel, while “New Monday” emits a more pop-oriented vibe. Hear both tracks live at this 98 Rock Local Licks showcase that also features Epsilona and Death Party at the Beach. 614 Sutter Street in Folsom, www.ghostplaymusic.com.
