HPXD - High Point x Design

Get Social at Market!

HPxD highlights the social scene at #HPMKT with exciting events for our design community.

Doors open at 7pm Show: 8pm | Thursday, April 20 | COHAB Space / Ziggy’s (Tickets $30 to $60 on Ziggy’s website)

Ghostland Observatory’s entire approach to music – sonically, aesthetically, conceptually – is essentially a melding of the two distinctly different personalities of its two members, Thomas Ross Turner and Aaron Behrens.  The result is a shimmering, pulsing pop music that is at once kinetically alive with Behrens’ striking vocals and driving guitar work but also anchored firmly by Turner’s percussive beats and Moog-generated melodies and hooks. Common descriptions include “electro-dance rock,” “synth-funk” and “Freddie Mercury-helms-Daft Punk.”
