GHOST PAL is a paranoid, psychedelic soul band from Brooklyn, NY. Having expanded and contracted for the better part of a year as a psychedelic and occasionally psychotic collective, the Brooklyn-born, genre-straddling outfit is led by Oliver Ignatius, when he isn’t busy running the recording studio MAMA COCO’S FUNKY KITCHEN. Over the years the group has moved from a loose collective of members to a 7-person strong crew trying to destroy and rebuild noise pop, with elements of psychedelia, funk, and garage rock finding their way into the fold. Blending indie rock, pop and soul into a delectable stew of sound, ARIADA is a Chicago-based outfit rapidly gaining a national foothold after a year of tremendous local growth. With comparisons to THE DOORS and ALABAMA SHAKES, and the powerful presence of Lesleigh Arratia’s vocals, it’s no secret that ARIADA are going places fast. Opening up this hump-day delight is NO SHOES, a New York based group who’ve been carving post-apocalyptic pop songs out of math rock structures. The proggy pop-rockers have an affinity for high energy sets and eclectic time signatures, with hints of noisy shoegaze and experimental art-rock thrown in for good measure.

    Blending indie rock, pop and soul into a delectable stew of sound, Ariada is a Chicago-based outfit rapidly gaining a national foothold after over a year of tremendous local growth. The band has received an array of comparisons stretching from The Doors and Queen to the modern sounds of Alabama Shakes and Grace Potter, although Greg Shaw wrote that, "The one fact you cannot argue is that Ariada is unlike anything else." - Nanobot Rock Reviews - http://bit.ly/17pOHWb

    Over the summer, Ariada found themselves playing self-booked tour dates throughout the region. Since then, the band dropped their self titled debut EP in late August 2013, having spent the past few months recording with Grammy Award-nominated producer, Chris Steinmetz. The EP has been positively received by critics and press and is receiving airplay on various independent and college radio stations. 

    The band has had the privilege of sharing the stage with national acts Willy Moon, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound and Minus The Bear to name a few, while also playing headlining shows in Chicago's top clubs including; Metro, Lincoln Hall, Schubas, Cubby Bear, and Double Door. Ariada is currently booking 2014 spring tour dates.
