Salem gets a lot of touring bands coming through from all over the country, and sometimes the world. I’d like to shine a spotlight on that, because sometimes I don’t think the live music loving public realizes it. There’s a world of music out there, and they’re coming to our town…let’s support them. The Sounds of Ghosts contacted me and asked for a mention, so they get it. They’re coming all the way from LA to treat Salem to their “completely unique sound,” drawing from folk, bluegrass, blues, and rock. They’ll be sharing the stage with local faves Dead Wood Standing and Acousta Noir from Roseburg. Sounds like a perfectly delightful way to spend a Tuesday in the Summertime. Suggested donations for the bands.
