Astari Nite and Old Wives Tale

Friday night's weekly Flamingo Fridays party at PS14 marks the first show there in a while for Miami foursome Astari Nite. The band has been steadily plugging away at its chilly, Placebo-influenced rock. Now that summer's here, singer Mychael Ghost and company have set to work on a proper debut EP, heading into the studio soon with Howard Melnick, formerly of Fashionista and currently of Champagne Days. They plan to release a final five-song, self-titled disc in August. And although this edition of Flamingo welcomes back Astari Nite, it bids bon voyage to local co-headliners Old Wives Tale. Those post-punk dance-floor hoodlums are leaving next week on a mini European tour that will take them through England and Spain.
