Artist: Ghost Shirt Song: "Waitress"
To be honest, I always thought Ghost Shirt was a horrendous name, so it took me a while to look into Columbus' foremost shitgaze-haters. (By the way, if you guys talk smack about other local musicians, you gotta expect the press to run with it!) But once I did, I was pleased with their music, which I dubbed "dignified folk-rock tunes with widescreen grandeur" in this profile last month. Tonight they play The Treehouse, 887 Chambers Rd., along with Wussy and The Kyle Sowashes. So today we spotlight "Waitress," which will appear on this year's Alive Amplified local music compilation. You can grab one (for free!) less than a month from now, so get excited.
