Ghost and the City - Sledgehammer

Ghost & the City – “Sledgehammer (Peter Gabriel cover)”

On Thursday, July 26 (that’s tonight, folks), two local bands join to celebrate the simultaneous release of their newest albums! Tumbleweed Wanderers (Oakland) and Rin Tin Tiger co-headline at Great American Music Hall, along with support from Ghost & the City (8pm, $15, tickets).

Ghost & the City opened the floodgates with the release of their second album, Sazerac, last year. They’re keeping things current by releasing a new single: the ultimately fun rendition of Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer.” One would hope that the dance floor opens up during their performance this evening.

You can win a pair of tickets to tonight’s show right here! To enter, send an email to with the subject line ‘Ghost & The City’ and your full name and favorite Peter Gabriel song in the body. The winner will be listed for tonight’s show at Great American. Good luck!

Another added bonus for show attendees: the first 200 will receive free copies of Tumbleweed Wanderers and Rin Tin Tiger’s new records.
