When: Fri., May 24, 9 p.m. 2013

Gap is selling neon jeans, so it's official: '80s synth nostalgia has officially hit epidemic proportions (blame fluoride). Holy Ghost! got in on the action early and have helped to propel neo-synth pop to its current heights. With connections ranging from DFA and Moby to Michael McDonald, Holy Ghost! have had an easy road to fame. As much of a production force as a pop duo, Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser seem to spend most of their time doing remixes for big names like MGMT and LCD Soundsystem. This might be their biggest strength. Their self-titled debut, with its accessibility and ebullience, became an immediate club staple, but just a few years later, with the benefit of hindsight and Flume, I find myself wishing it was a bit less faithful to the '80s and slightly more innovative.
