Ghost Light Jams On Bob Marley In Los Angeles


Ghost Light played their final headlining show of 2019 on Saturday night at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. The quintet worked a jam on Bob Marley’s “Waiting In Vain” within their first of two seamless sets at the Teragram.

Saturday’s show began with a frame bookended by “Winter War Games” from guitarist Tom Hamilton‘s American Babies days. “Winter War Games” gave way to “Keep Your Hands To Yourself” off the group’s 2019 album, Best Kept Secrets. Ghost Light included “Isosceles” within “Keep Your Hands To Yourself” and the second half of the song bled into “Cold Blooded,” an American Babies tune the group debuted earlier in the tour. The five-piece followed with a cover of Tame Impala’s “The Less I Know The Better” that featured a Hamilton-led jam on “Waiting In Vain” before the band closed out “Winter War Games” to end the set.


Ghost Light both started and ended their second set in L.A. with “Best Kept Secret.” The beginning of the title track from their lone studio album was followed by a run of “Fever Dreams” into “Swimming At Night” into “Joline.” Next up was “What Does It Mean To Be” before Ghost Light returned to “Best Kept Secret.” The quintet worked guitarist Raina Mullen‘s “I Dare You” into the set ahead of reprising “Best Kept Secret.” For the encore, Ghost Light pulled “Fever Dreams” from the American Babies repertoire.
