Ghost Light has released full-show audio from their Friday show on Jam Cruise 18. They also announced free live streams of their concerts this coming Thursday and Saturday night.
This day four performance, the band’s second of the cruise, took place in the Pantheon Theater below deck. The location allowed Ghost Light to stretch their sea-legs and also gave them refuge from adverse weather conditions that displaced multiple sets throughout the weekend, including moe. and Original Garage A Trois. This 90-plus minute set featured a selection of Ghost Light originals, in addition to a Tame Impala cover.
The show kicked off with “This Thing Ain’t Going Nowhere”, borrowed from Tom Hamilton’s American Babies catalog. Then the band dug into their debut album, Best Kept Secret, with “Don’t Come Apart Just Yet, My Dear”. After that came another pull from the American Babies repertoire with “Fever Dreams”, which segued right into “Synth Driver”, which then lead into the set’s only cover, Tame Impala’s “The Less I Know The Better”, which was jammed out for an impressive 11-and-a-half minutes.
Ghost Light once again took up the American Babies songbook with “Winter War Games”, which segued into a reprise of “Synth Driver”. The band then went in for one last lengthy jam with a 15-minute “Bullseye Blues” before wrapping up the set by reprising “Don’t Come Apart”.
The full-show audio from Ghost Light’s set Friday night on Jam Cruise is available below.
