Ghastly Shakes Webster Hall With On The Road To Mysteryland Tour

| April 11, 2017

Do you have that artist whom you could see perform again and again? You know the one. You know all their songs, random details about their lives, you follow them on social media and you make sure you live stream all their live sets

For me, that artist is Ghastly, a highly experimental bass house producer with an infectious smile. I’ve seen Ghastly perform many times now, but when I found out that he would be in Manhattan for his On the Road to Mysteryland Tour, attendance wasn’t up for debate. I was going.

Ghastly performed at Webster Hall, the one EDM hub in New York that I have yet to review. I’ve been to Webster Hall several times in the past and the legendary multiple floor venue features different genres of music in different rooms. On March 31st however, I was there for one artist and one artist only.

It was a bassy night

Ducky and Crankdat preceded Ghastly and the bass was cranked up all night. Many opening acts that I’ve seen usually played something markedly different from what the main act would be playing that night. This was not the case. Ducky dropped some sick bass and kept everything fresh with some happy hardcore. Crankdat went pure bass and the headbangers began warming up. By the end of his set, everyone was ready for Ghastly.

Ghastly always brings huge energy with him to every stage and I’ve seen him perform in nightclubs, and at festivals both big and small. No matter the time, place or crowd, Ghastly always brings passion, enthusiasm and pure love of his music to the stage. Webster Hall was no exception.

Ghastly played a number of tracks including his hits Crank It, Miami Connection, Ghosts N' Sharks, Get On This, King Is Back VIP, Bitch U Ghastly and a few new songs that have yet to be released. (Spoiler: They're good. Keep an eye out for Ghastly's new releases!) The show was phenomenal; Ghastly perfectly balanced his crowd interaction and performance, he gave great shout outs, and he kept the party going all night.

By the end of the night, my neck was stiff from headbanging all night. I had spent the entirety of the show in the back of Webster Hall, dancing, gloving and giving light shows, and I was the happiest that I’ve been in a while. Ghastly brought a formidable combination of bass, passion, and energy to Webster Hall and the crowd loved it. If Ghastly's supercharged set was his warm up for Mysteryland, then he’s not one to miss.
