But, before we get down to business.
Thank you kind, insightful, WISE readers of this blog who commented on yesterday's post. I knew I was taking a risk being a little more soul baring than usual, and I appreciate you being so cool (and encouraging) about it. Your words prompted me to leave a "response" comment so long, that Blogger wouldn't even accept it! Haha. It was over the character limit, and trust me, they give you a lot of characters.
Well today, Austin Concerts Examiner Greg Ackerman guest posts on Austin Eavesdropper, with a review of Chromeo's and Holy Ghost's show at Stubb's last Tuesday. Enjoy his write-up. Thanks so much Greg for doing this!

When I received an email saying an Examiner writer had already beaten me to the request for credentials for Chromeo and Holy Ghost at Stubb's BBQ on Tuesday I was momentarily stymied. But the PR contact thankfully asked if I had another outlet to publish to. Oh boy, did I! I frantically typed messages on every freaking social media platform and email address I have for Tolly Moseley and requested to submit a guest post for Austin Eavesdropper.
Holy Ghost was equally entertaining but more in a New Order, old-school, Michael Jackson kind of way. It was still pretty hot when HG took the stage. The crowd was attentive, but not moving much even though the band was going for it with energy. Their music fits the DFA label they share with LCD Soundsystem. There is an underlying edge to the music that sounds and feels punk. I'm looking forward to see the band headline a show after seeing two opener performances. They're THAT good.
