Holy Ghost at the Social Club Tue 8 Mar
After working as studio musicians and live players for DFA Records (James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy) as well as playing and recording with Juan Maclean on his releases, New Yorkers Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser formed Holy Ghost! over a shared love of analog synthesizers, Larry Levan era-disco, and the cheap thrills of infectious pop. At the insistence of Murphy, the duo released their first track ‘Hold On’ on DFA Records, which hit a chord worldwide. Diverse club support from DJ’s like A-Trak and The Loft’s David Mancuso led to mainstream support and iTunes named ‘Hold On’ Single of The Week. Propelled by this success, the band then released a string of hit remixes for artists like MGMT, Cut Copy, Phoenix, and Moby, and traveled around the world DJ’ing. After releasing a cover swap with British band Friendly Fires on XL/DFA, the duo are about to release a new EP on DFA in May. To support it, they’ll open for LCD Soundsystem in the US then head to Europe to play summer festivals. But first they’re coming to the Social Club for this FREE GIG, next Tue 8 Mar, 9.30pm where you can be one of the first to discover the band live!
