Spooky sounds from Ghostkeeper and Chairs

E-mail Print PDF

Ghostkeeper and Raleigh usually pack the house when they play Lethbridge, but it was not to be for their July. 29 show at the Slice.

 I missed Calgary indie-rock band Raleigh wShane Ghostkeeper plays the saw. photo by Richard Ameryho put on a great show, but arrived in time for a weird set from Calgary’s Ghostkeeper, who pushed the boundaries of  indie rock and electronica music.
 Shane Ghostkeeper and Sarah Houle sang haunting, ethereal vocals backed by  spooky electronica beats.

Ghostkeeper added extra sinister layers of ambience on guitar and knelt down on the stage to bow a saw as if possessed by the spirit of Jimi Hendrix.

Montreal’s Chairs took the stage just before 1 a.m. for a set of laid back indie rock mixed with a touch of ’90s and 200s Brit pop like Blur.
