Ghost Light Covers Tears For Fears During Colorado Run Closer: Full Show Pro-Shot Video

At the end of March, Ghost Light released their debut LP, Best Kept Secrets. In the time since, the five-piece improvisational act has embarked on the first leg of their promotional spring tour, most recently finishing off a four-night Colorado run over the weekend. After stops in Frisco, Crested Butte and Boulder, the group closed out their Colorado dates with a stellar show on Saturday, March 30, at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver.

Throughout the two-set performance, the group previewed a number of tracks from their recently released album, opening the show with the LP’s title track “Best Kept Secret.” By way of Brothers Past’s “Leave The Light On,” the group offered an extended cover of Tears For Fears’ “Head Over Heels,” the 1985 new-wave hit. Next, the group segued into the soulful and slower “Isosceles,” followed by a final sandwich of American Babies’ “Synth Driver” featuring a rendition of The Kinks’ “Living On A Thin Line” within it.

For the second frame, Ghost Light opened with two additional selections from Tom Hamilton‘s former American Babies project, “Oh Darling, My Darling” and “Bullseye Blues.” Moving through “I Dare You,” the group then offered American Babies’ “Old Fashioned” before Best Kept Secrets single “Diamond Eyes.” To close out the set, the group offered a final American Babies track, “Bring It In Close,” before a take on the Rolling Stones’ “100 Years Ago” and a patient rendition of original “Beyond/Before.” The show ended in full with an encore of “The Wild One” and a reprise of “Diamond Eyes.”
