There may be no party in a sad, sad city, but that certainly wasn’t the case Friday, November 9 when Aaron Behrens and Thomas Turner of Ghostland Observatory took the stage at Warehouse Live. If the lasers, Turner’s cape, and Behrens’ long braids and glossy shirt didn’t tip you off, the immediate dance party that began with the first note did: this was going to be a funky night.
In a display of cloudy foresight and poor planning, the Breakfast On Tour crew was waiting in line for beer when the duo began their set. We enthusiastically and impatiently danced in place, exchanging periodic looks of anguish. Coffee almost couldn’t take it — as soon as her drinks were in her hands, she darted off through the crowd on a mission for a prime spot.
