Flying around stage in capes, singing about sad cities and dancing on graves is only a few reasons why Ghostland Observatory has attracted crowds from all over the world. The electro-pop duo from Austin released two albums in less than a year, has played in countless music festivals--including Austin City Limits--and is now back on the road to give audiences a night of Robotique Majestique. Frontman Aaron Behrens' vocal style and stage performances are described as unique and uncompromising and have been compared to Freddie Mercury and Prince. Drummer/producer Thomas Turner says he's heavily influenced by artists such as Daft Punk, David Bowie and The Clash. Blending their electronics, drums, guitar and vocals, the duo is expected to draw a large crowd wherever they go. The twosome will hit Dallas on Halloween night at the Palladium Ballroom, 1135 S. Lamar St. The show starts at 9 p.m. and tickets are $30. For more information, go to thepalladiumballroom.com.
