The Goodbye Party

Status Quo w/OhBree at The Fire Sept. 24

Tormenting yet playful like some delightfully twisted subconscious dream concoction, where slightly off-kilter becomes the status quo, OhBree will be performing tonight at The Fire. With songs that tap into a theatrical/dramatic with quirky, catchy lyrics and instrumentation that varies from bright, cheery keys and horn combinations to more heavily clouded, grey mood makers, you can't help hearing the influence of local favorites Man Man. Like their forefathers, OhBree warps listeners into their musical world, and it’s a compelling place. Joining OhBree on the bill will be Mike Bell's previous incarnation Mike Bell & The World’s Most Unremarkable Band, as well as local pop-punk outfit The Goodbye Party (featuring Michael Cantor of The Ambulars) with New York’s Gladshot completing the bill. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 8:30 pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The Goodbye Party Opening for Ava Luna at Great Indoors March 23

Michael Cantor of The Ambulars has been starting to make a name for himself in his endeavors as a solo artist, and now he’s literally made a new name for himself: The Goodbye Party. The new moniker Cantor will perform under doesn’t necessarily signify a departure from the contemplative lo-fi we’re used to hearing from him.  His last EP, Funeral Season, was a melancholy march of distorted blues that built up to a hopeful final track. He’ll be opening for headliners NYC’s Ava Luna, playing a jittery style of soulful pop. They released their latest LP, Electric Balloon (Western Vinyl) earlier this month, and it’s chock full of sharp-cornered funk. Boston’s Krill will also bring a raw, straight-from-the-garage sound to the stage, while Philly’s own Laser Background provides sugarcoated lullabies intertwined with sadistic psych-pop. Not a bad way to cap off a nice spring weekend before it snows again next week - ugh...forever winter. Great Indoors, (Please contact ghostlightbooking@gmail.com for more info.), 8pm, $5, All Ages - Shaylin O’Connell
