In today’s Weekend section New York indie-electro-pop group Holy Ghost! is profiled. Beyond the infectious disco-rock tunes, there’s the great story of how the band’s two principle members, Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel, have been best friends for basically their entire lives.
"We grew up in this little group of kids who were always into making stuff, whether it was movies on our parents' cameras or taking pictures or playing piano," the band’s AlexFrankel says. "Whatever it was, there was some reason that in this group no one made fun of each other [for being artistic]. No one was like, 'You [expletive], playing piano!' It was, 'Ooh, I really like that Tori Amos song, too!' "
Holy Ghost! plays at the 9:30 Club on Wednesday. Read the full profile from today’s paper here, and check back next week for some interview outtakes.
