Ghost Light, the new project from American Babies/Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Tom Hamilton and pianist Holly Bowling, played their first-ever show last night at Winstons Beach Club in San Diego, CA, and offered up some debut originals and cover favorites throughout the evening.
The band started out with two Ghost Light originals, “Come Apart” and “If You Want It” (both titles unconfirmed as of now) before leading into a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Eyes of the World.” The Set also featured more originals—“Diamond Eyes” and “Lead Weight“—plus a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “100 Years Ago” and two tunes from Hamilton’s other bands, American Babies’ “Synth Driver” and “Boy,” a song from Hamilton’s first breakout group Brothers Past. Ghost Light later ended the night with an encore cover of Derek & The Dominoes’ “Keep On Growing.”
See the full setlist below, plus video of “Come Apart,” the Dead cover and more, and learn more about the origins of the band in our recent interview with Holly Bowling here. The group continues their inaugural tour tonight at The Mint in Los Angeles. See their full schedule here.
