Jukebox The Ghost In Concert

Originally published on Wed June 18, 2014 2:23 pm

"The Germans can't pronounce it," Jukebox the Ghost says of its name, which its members admit is "impossible to say." The trio came together while attending George Washington University in Washington, D.C., when the drummer and keyboardist responded to a flyer the guitarist had posted in the school's music department. The trio initially performed under the name The Sunday Mail, but after a few years decided that a new identity was in order. Crafting a sound full of fresh-faced indie-pop, Jukebox the Ghost is frequently compared to They Might Be Giants and Ben Folds, with whom the band toured in 2009.

Hear Jukebox the Ghost perform songs from its latest record, Safe Travels, at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
