Bands with actual career arcs are rare these days, and Grandpa's Ghost is a woolly beast with some serious arc. From cow-punk to concrete music (yes, the band has sounded like actual cement as it solidifies) to angelic and angled fuzz-outs in a "Sister Ray" style, the Ghost walks a lonely path. Its path hits a pit stop at this show, when three-fourths of the band takes a stand at White Flag Projects. Following the St. Louis premiere screening of Ghost cohort James Fotopoulos' film, Christabel, the band will perform something called the Prairie Drone Refractions — i.e. it'll be improvising fifteen-minute chunks of music that will be recorded and then broadcast over and during the next fifteen-minute improvised piece, thus creating a continuous hour-long loop of layered sound. Absent bandleader Ben Hanna will even be phoning in his contributions from NYC. There'll be no spectacle like it this year — guaranteed.
