Please join us for this special freaky/psychy/folky Friday summer night in San Francisco: Sean Real of local band Little Teeth; Seattle Antifolk band Origami Ghosts make their return to the Hemlock; and Gray Tolhurst is a beautiful songwriter of former SF band Coo Coo Birds. Can you already feel the magic?!
Residing somewhere between noise-pop and freak folk.
Antifolk? Irreverent trance pop? Twee? Origami Ghosts have been shapeshifting and genre-bending since 2004. The tunes are soulful punk jams crafted by Seattle, WA’s own Jean Paul de Bellevue: an existential alt-folk-rock lad. Origami Ghosts can be one — JP Scesniak — or many. The latter arrangement currently combines the sweet storytelling and songwriting of Scesniak with the magical synth, flute, and melodica! playing of Cassandra Wulff, and the blazingly ambitious cello and drum shreds of Jacob Leavitt and Ben Kendall respectively. Experience the mind-bending hypno-folk of Origami Ghosts.
