Weekly Volcano - Alternative Newsweekly, Tacoma, WA. - Music Picks Week of Nov 26th.

Friday, Nov. 27
The one-man-folk-band thing is getting a wee-bit played out. There’s only so much banjo-plucking and foot-stomping — coming from just a single person with an “Isn’t it impressive how many things I can do at once?” look on their face — that a set of refined ears can appreciate. After a while, unless you’re actually on a porch somewhere in the South and drunk on moonshine, the head pat–tummy rub shtick just gets old. That said, Ghostwriter is NOT played out — and the shtick is anything but boring. While Steve Schecter — the man who is Ghostwriter — has the country-fried, chicken feather bit down — there’s also a gloominess to what he does that keeps things interesting. Check it for yourself Friday at The New Frontier when Ghostwriter shares a bill with Brotherhood of the Black Squirrel.  — Matt Driscoll
[The New Frontier Lounge, with Brotherhood of the Black Squirrel, Fun Police, 9 p.m., cover TBA, 301 E. 25th St., Tacoma, 253.572.4020
