Freight Train, Rabbit Killer and Berwanger at Record Bar

Over at the Record Bar just before Halloween, Freight Train, Rabbit Killer and the Legion of Ghosts performed an extended set of tunes with Berwanger opening.

Berwanger started things off with a power-pop set of rock tunes in support of the newly released “Exorcism Rock”.  It’s a great album with snappy tunes and great production value. Definitely check it out.

After Berwanger finished things off, the Kris Bruders and Mark Smeltzer started the FTRK set off as the typical duo.  They set the tone for their delta blues inspired tunes before the Legion of Ghosts turned the set into a thirteen piece jam of horns, drums, keys and slide guitar in addition to Smeltzer’s DIY string instruments.  It was quite a massive sound.  In previous editions of the Legion of Ghosts the lineup was much smaller.  This time around it appeared all the stops were pulled.
