Jukebox the Ghost at Beachland Ballroom

Concert Review

Armed with a big new(ish) album and a fan-favorite arsenal of archived tracks, Jukebox the Ghost showed up to the good ol' Beachland Ballroom last night and sparked a fevered frenzy of dancing. 

Highlights included, notably, much of the band's newer material off their self-titled album. Opener "Postcard," "When the Night Gets Long" and "Sound of a Broken Heart" all earned crowd-wide praise. Of course, earlier hits like "Lighting Myself on Fire" picked up the requisite cheers from longtime fans.

The common thread through the night was indeed the dancing — through opening acts Secret Someones and Twin Forks all through Jukebox's set. This is foot-stompin' fun music, and it proved to be a worthy antidote to the damning cold outside. We were in communion with the Beachland's Croatian hardwood.

At one point, the guys traded some stage banter about how we're all getting so old (i.e. remember the first time we played at the Beachland?), and guitarist Tommy Siegel mimicked a super-old person's trembling voice. We all kinda looked around, laughed, and agreed that, yep, we're all getting up there.

They closed out the evening with the Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian," which got the whole place movin' and groovin' one last time.
