Thursday, August 3 - Toronto octet The Ghost is Dancing knows how to put on a show - sparklers, balloon animal headgear and confetti outbursts are not uncommon sights. Part faerie carnival, part music show, always a good time. Though they've been describe as "art rock", the term does not do them justice - this is a band that has to be experienced live. Otherworldly soundscapes meets serious rockage. Beautiful stuff, tis.
