Tonight is the Omaha debut of Sean Lennon's new band, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger. The band will be performing tonight at Waiting Room. As of now, tickets are still available.
I've been playing cuts from the band's new album, Midnight Sun, on my radio show, and am digging the record. The music is hard to describe. There is a strong pop sensibility, as well as a decent amount of psychedelia.
There are obvious similarities to The Beatles, but no more so than a million other bands that mix pop and psychedelic music. Sean Lennon's DNA shouldn't preclude him from making music that - sometimes - sounds like The Beatles; nor should it make people automatically assume they know what GOASST will sound like.
It's good stuff, and I am looking forward to checking the band out tonight. Tickets are $15, and the show begins at 9pm.
