Friday night's weekly Flamingo Fridays party at PS14 marks the first show in a while on this side of the county line for the Miami foursome Astari Nite. The band has been playing out relatively frequently, but recent weeks have seen it playing mostly around Broward and even West Palm Beach.
And instead of slowing down for the summer, instead frontman Mychael Ghost and company are ramping it up. They've begun work on an EP, and here's how Ghost describes the song's narrative: "[the song is] about a young man who is seduced by a ghost he can't get out of his mind. She haunts him so much it's the cause of his death. He finally meets up with the ghost in the end -- I think she is Wendy Darling."
Well, not sure how the Peter Pan references fit in, but you'll know already if you enjoy this kind of morbidity and romanticism.
Besides playing tonight's show at PS14, Ghost says Astari Nite is also one of the scheduled headliners for Respectable Street Cafe's anniversary party later this summer. He is also throwing "a huge event" at Culture Room mid-summer. Stay tuned to Crossfade for details.
