Goodbye Blue Monday 6/21

June 21, 2011 2:57 am

Tuesday, 6/21, 7:00 PM at Goodbye Blue Monday: Mark is asleep on my floor, Charlie has taken his traditional perch atop the Chrysler Building, Kevin is skateboarding down the BQE, and Tim Bartlett has become lightning. I know all this because I woke up omnipresent, again. It’s a great day for a rock show.

Tonight, Ghost Ghost performs at Goodbye Blue Monday, 1087 Broadway in Bushwick Brooklyn. The show is free, the drinks are cheap, and we’ll only be playing the hottest summer jams, which we will write on the way to the show. Facebook event here.

Also note: due to legal issues, we will no longer be providing any of the following at our shows: free helicopter rides on our 1922 Oehmichen helicopter (pictured), all day “fun passes” to the Alaska governor’s mansion (not pictured), or framed velvet portraits of Kim Jong Il (not pictured).

Read more about the festival in this New York Times feature. The show is free and huge. Facebook event here.

We promise that Joe Lieberman will be there, dressed as Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars. Also, we may–I repeat, may–reenact a Civil War battle dressed in period-correct Star Wars costumes.

We came from space. We brought machines.
