Pop-Press: Caught a Ghost Heads to Bowery on 11/15



What if somehow, some way, John Coltrane and Dr. Dre got into a studio together late one night and produced some music?

The sound might be something like you’d hear from the L.A.-based group, Caught a Ghost. Yes, it’s kind of a big claim but the group, fronted by veteran musician, Jesse Nolan, (and featuring Veronica Mars and Copper actress Tessa Thompson) has built their musical foundation on a classic Motown and Stax Records sensibilities as the brick mixed with modern day samples, synths and beats as the mortar.

The band has their music heard on television shows like Suits, Grey’s Anatomy and mostly recently, trailers for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. (See video below)

The band will be performing this Friday at New York’s famed Bowery Ballroom in support of He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister. Tickets are just $15 and can be purchased by clicking here.
