Holy Ghost Tent Revival

Holy Ghost Tent Revival (Greensboro, N.C.)

Holy Ghost Tent Revival lived up to The Band and Flying Burrito Brothers comparisons when it tore shit up at 2012’s MidPoint. A repeat of that breathtaking performance seems inevitable as the sextet hits the road to promote their imminent new album, Right State of Mind. Holy Ghost Tent Revival toss all kinds of goodies into its musical crockpot — Stax Soul, Indie Rock, classic ’60s brass-flecked Pop/Rock — and season the whole batch from its own unique spice rack until it’s bubbling over with infectious melodicism, boundless passion and ass-shaking energy. You may come to the Holy Ghost Tent Revival with a weary soul, but you will leave with more love and redemption than two arms and a heart can carry.

You’ll Dig It If You Dig: Jimbo Mathus, Squeeze and Blood, Sweat & Tears hold a seance to contact the spirit of Levon Helm, who produces their collaboration from beyond the great whatever. (Brian Baker)
