Concert preview: Winter Makes Sailors at Spacebar

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Columbus singer/guitarist Sean Gardner has been frequenting local stages more regularly in the past year or so, which is good news. He's slowly working on a new Winter Makes Sailors record and also started tracking songs for a new harmony-soaked, ambient-pop act he formed with Casey Cooper and Nate Rothacker called the West Ghost. Plus there's a new record coming from yet another new band, Rented Lips, featuring Mike Postalakis and Dan Bandman. Oh, and Gardner and Bandman are writing a new Bookmobile record. Yesss.

Also, opening act Underbelly Steve is the project of Steven Sponhour, a longtime guitar/songwriting student of Gardner's. “I'm excited for people to hear his songs,” Gardner said in an email. “He's gonna be unstoppable.”(Don't Miss It)
