Holograms, TV Ghost 

When: Tue., Dec. 10, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
This postpunk band from Lafayette, Indiana, recorded its first songs in 2007, when some of its members were still in high school, and this fall Madison label Kind Turkey released them as the Television Ghost seven-inch—two tracks of blown-out, sinister garage rock with the bad vibes and nervous energy pushed to 11. Television Ghost could stand on its own as a weirdo-punk masterpiece, but it’s even more interesting alongside TV Ghost’s fourth album, the epic double LP Disconnect (In the Red), which came out the same month. The amount of evolution that the band has undergone over the past six years is astounding. Disconnect is airy, spooky, and gothic, trading in the overdriven organ of Television Ghost for somber, icy synth—and the deranged howl of front man Tim Gick has become a desperate, dramatic wail. TV Ghost’s recent live sets have consisted mostly of Disconnect material, and the record’s theatrical, over-the-top feel makes for an almost supernaturally engaging live show. —Luca Cimarusti Holograms headline.
