Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

New York got a double dose of Sean Lennon on July 18, 2011 at Bowery Ballroom.  Sean’s band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger opened for Sean’s former band mates Cibo Matto and then later on in the evening, Sean made a guest appearance during Cibo Matto’s set.  The Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger is made up of Sean Lennon and his girlfriend, model and musician Charlotte Kemp Muhl.  The band often performs acoustic sets, but last night, The GOASTT went electric!  The band played several songs from their debut album “Acoustic Sessions” performing the tracks with rock arrangements for the first time.  In between songs, Sean addressed the crowd and was very soft spoken.  He asked the audience if they were familiar with the term “rock out with your cock out,” and he advised that he coined the female version of that phrase – “jam out with your clam out.”  Too funny!  Speaking of rockin’, if you don’t know the music of The GOASTT, it’s experimental, avant garde and you’ll hear Sean and Charlotte harmonizing (as well as performing lengthy guitar solos).  Good stuff, according2g.

The band has announced a few upcoming tour dates, so make sure you go see them!
