Get to Know Ghost with a Cool Live Acoustic Performance [Video]

Ghost is a cool band that you've been hearing on GRD, and they're about to release their third album, 'Meliora', on Friday! They're a Swedish band that hides their identities, only know as 'Papa Emeritus' and the 'Unnamed Ghouls'.

They're on their third 'Papa Emeritus', even though it's the same singer, they change his look and alter-ego. It's a fun band, and they have a great throwback sound and style that's really unique.

Islander Rocked Grand Rapids on Saturday Night with Pop Evil

Saturday night, Grand Rapids' own, Pop Evil returned home for a big show at The Intersection, with Islander, Letters from the Fire, Red Sun Rising, and Grand Rapids' own, Hurry Home!  All the bands kicked ass, getting the crowd rowdier and crazier as the night went on.

Before the show even began, Islander came out to meet some GRD ticket winners, and play a few acoustic versions of some songs, including "Coconut Dracula".  The guitar player was late for the acoustic set, so the band decided to play a little joke on him and pretend the set was over just as he ran in to play!
