Holy Ghost Tent Revival at Visulite Theatre tonight
HOLY GHOST TENT REVIVAL Homeboys Holy Ghost Tent Revival hail from Greensboro, where the band makes old-timey folk-pop in the bluegrass and jugband vein. Featuring horns, electric instrumentation and the occasional gravelly holler that calls to mind the folkgrass of the early-period Avett Brothers, Holy Ghost Tent Revival fits squarely among a recent batch of young’uns discovering old sounds and instruments in a rollicking, modern way. They’ve been touring hard for the last three years and are preparing this summer to release a new album, Sweat Like the Old Days, which promises “an even more concentrated rush of electric joy that may surprise listeners accustomed to vintage Ghost.” And while the band might sometimes be difficult to distinguish from the other Americana acts making more rock-leaning, electric ’grass, Ghost can be counted on to perform with a foot-stomping passion that would send any fan of sick banjo picking home happy. $8. Sept. 21, 9:45 p.m. Visulite Theatre, 1615 Elizabeth Ave. 704-358-9200.
