Something about the Holy Ghost Revival's music inspires feelings of either intense love or outright disgust. Due in part to band members heckling the crowd and their occasional unwillingness to play a coherent set, their point seems to be that a reaction, good or bad, is better than none at all. Though HGR doesn't have a huge following, those who consider themselves fans tend to support the band with all the religious zeal their theological name suggests. This show in particular should be interesting, since the band just returned from six months of living in London and touring around Western Europe. Unfortunately, the return of one band also marks the departure of another. This will be one of the last local shows of electro-punk three-piece the Pharmacy before the band relocates to New Orleans, Louisiana. Over the years, the Pharmacy has matured considerably and stayed dedicated to Seattle's all-ages music community. BFF.
