Holy Ghost! (Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel) have shared a new song, “Epton On Broadway (Part I & Part II).” The song features backing vocals from Sinkane’s Ahmed Gallab. A press release also promises a new album from the duo, their third, later this year on West End Records. Check out “Epton On Broadway (Part I & Part II)” below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Frankel had this to say about the song in a press release: “Lyrically, ‘Epton On Broadway’ is a bit of a choose your own adventure. But to me: The verses are lamenting the end of a really fun era - ‘All my favorite places closed,’ ‘nostalgia for the laughs and the afterglow,’ ‘making eyes with youth,’ etc. But the chorus addresses that we all actually want something less immediately entertaining but ultimately, well ideally, more sustainably fun. Sheesh. When you start talking about fun in relationship to sustainability you know you’re well into your 30s… so be it.”

Holy Ghost! Tour Dates:

04-26 San Francisco, CA - The Independent
04-27 Los Angeles, CA - Globe Theatre
05-03 Washington, DC - U Street Music Hall
05-09 Guadalajara, Mexico - Corona Capital at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez

The content of burlesque may have been similar to cabaret at one time, with perhaps more comics in burlesque and more singers/dancers in cabaret. But what’s now called a strip club used to be a burlesque show, in the declining years of burlesque. Perhaps up to the 50’s or early 60’s, performers were called B-girls.  If you are interested in this you should read more Broadway play reviews. The musical “Gypsy” takes place as burlesque houses turned more and more to exotic dancers (teasing nudity covered up with large fans or similar) and strippers.
