“ghostplay...they are super unique, but for me, at least, recall Atlas Sound, Deerhunter, and, in a certain way, surf music.” - Lavender Blush (SF band)
It has been a quiet year show wise for us in 2023, but it has not been unproductive! We are finishing up our first full length album, and have a spectacular gig lined up to close out the year! We are so excited to have the opportunity to open for Harsh Symmetry at The Starlet Room on Tuesday November 14, 2023!
We had the pleasure of recently watching Harsh Symmetry open for the legendary Lebanon Hanover duo in San Francisco at the Regency Ballroom and it was amazing! We are big fans of Harsh Symmetry and are stoked to have this opportunity.
This is also your opportunity to see us one last time before we dig into planning the release of our new album next year! Yes, we can also announce that we are finalizing the mixes and will be moving into the artwork phase. Its a surreal thing to be thinking about since our EP was released way back in 2015! So, if you would like to hear some of the songs on the upcoming album before they are released come hang out at the show! More updates soon!
Harsh Symmetry w/ ghostplay - ALL AGES @ The Starlet Room on 11/14/2023

We can't thank Rituals of Mine enough for giving us the opportunity to open for this memorable gig on 4.11.2023 at The Starlet Room; it was an emotional experience! We are so very greateful for the support and fantastic turnout for a Tuesday night (seriously, mind blown)! It was so nice to see our family, old friends, and so many new friends who cam out! Rituals of Mine and Jakhari smith blew us away; they both had amazing sets! Thank you, Starlet Room, for hosting this event. We love playing this venue, and big props to your staff for helping us carry our gear upstairs!
We look forward to future shows, and what else 2023 has in store! For now it's back to work on our album which is still moving forward. A few of the songs on this 10 song LP are nearly complete, and we are also in the process of getting the art work together for the album. We are so ready to share this album, but all in good time it will happen! Thank you so much for the continued support, Cheers!

This week we were offered an opening slot for the upcoming Rituals Of Mine show in Sacramento at The Starlet Room (above Harlows) on April 11, 2023! Rituals Of Mine (formerly known as Sister Crayon), and lead by Terra Lopez, have a long history here in Sacramento, CA and are a very beloved group amongst many locals. We have personally followed Terra since her days in The Evening Episode and Sister Crayon. We were very honored to have this opportunity and excited because it is also our first show of 2023!
We hope you will join us on Tuesday April 11, 2023 for this ALL AGES show at The Starlet Room as we open for Rituals Of Mine along with the incredibly talented Jakhari Smith!

Hello, 2023! Happy New Year! Wow, time goes by so fast! Things have been quiet, but things are still in progress! Mixes of our new album are continuing; as you can imagine, ten songs take some time to put together and get them to sound the way we envision. In the meantime, we have been taking the opportunity to travel and sticker bomb places like London, Amsterdam, and New York. If all goes well, we are even plotting a mini tour overseas in Helsinki, Finland, BUT that will take a lot of luck, so fingers crossed that we can make it happen!
And while the wait continues for new music, we are releasing some videos from our set on 9/30/2022 at the Starlet Room. In addition, a live video version of some new music may be included (one or two, maybe). But, for now, we have released a live performance of an oldy but goodie 'my halo' from that set. It came out pretty cool! A very special thank you to Paul Bates who filmed the set, John Bologni who recorded the audio, and our drummer, Armando Gonzales who editied the video.
You can visit our YouTube page to check it out and subscribe to our page to be notified of new videos we release.
We are still plotting our course for 2023 and still writing new material. So again, we thank everyone for all the support over the years, it's been nearly eight years since our '33' ep, but we promise we will still be releasing our first full-length album! Cheers!
