Last night was my first trip to The Trunk Space so going in I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. The place itself it really cool, they have a coffee bar, used records, art hanging on the wall and on overall vibe I would describe as "chilln' so hard". It was the perfect venue for Former Ghosts and The One AM Radio to play. They are both far from your run of the mill indie music.
Former Ghosts is just two guys utilizing a combination of different instruments and a Mac book to create a huge haunting sound that several people commented afterwords that they couldn't believe that only two people were creating that sound.
The One AM Radio sounds like a combination of The Postal Service, a tinge of Arcade Fire and a little Jesus & Mary Chain that come together into something very much their own creation.
Overall I really excellent show. I would recommend picking up Former Ghosts debut Fleurs album when it comes out on Oct 20th, and The One AM Radio has a couple of albums out already that you can check out HERE
I am serving up some pictures of the show after the break and maybe even a video or two (I was a little to close to the speakers with the video camera so some of the audio gets a little distorted at times). Check out the rest of the pictures on our Flickr page HERE and the rest of videos on our Youtube page HERE
