Touring punk acts Holograms and TV Ghost hit San Francisco's Bottom of the Hill this past Wednesday, December 17th, treating the packed venue to a night filled with various flavors of punk music, with local support from Sacramento's G. Green.
Based out of Sweden, Holograms were touring in support of their latest release titled 'Forever', and brought the Lafayette, IN. band TV Ghost along for the ride. While Holograms inject a heavy dose of synthesizers into many of their post-punk songs, and displayed a somewhat reserved stage presence, TV Ghost delved more into fuzzy guitars and distortion, with large coiffed vocalist Tim Gick jumping onto every surface near the stage, running into the crowd, and dancing behind a projection screen after pulling it from the ceiling.
Both acts got the audience moving, which sometimes escalated to moshing by a number of participants. Holograms played favorites such as "ABC City" and "Chasing My Mind", which saw the audience's energy at its peak for the night, and TV Ghost did a solid job of keeping everyone engaged. Local punk act G. Green were an act that felt a little out of place due to their comparative lack of aggressiveness when stacked against the other performers, but served well in warming up the crowd.
