Members: Tyler Skelton, Brain DeAngelo, Ken Riley, Justin John Smith
Who?: Eclectic quartet given to flights of progressive fancy. Fans of Buffalo bands Peanut Brittle Satellite, Deja Fuze and Rhubarb, line up. (Not that these guys really sound like these bands. But if you are a fan of any of them, you'll probably dig Dali's Ghost.)
What's next: The band plays Nietzsche's (248 Allen St.) at 10 p.m. Saturday, with friends the Tins, Antics and Brad Gowers.
The Latest: Nothing brand new, but check out the band's previously released music here at www.cdbaby.com/cd/dalisghost.
Why?: Dali's Ghost is on the cutting edge of Buffalo bands hellbent on challenging musical preconceptions. The group's sound does not fit neatly into one little niche, which is part of what makes its music exciting and unusual. It's enigmatic stuff that belongs loosely within the rubric of rock. Listeners open to modern progressive sounds will not find this threatening. People used to being told what to do probably will find it threatening.
The band says it best itself, via its Facebook page: "Dali's Ghost: a band of humans trying to manifest the ever-expanding infinite universe into a 5-minute pop song."
And they said rock 'n' roll was dead!
