Ema and the Ghosts 3/03/12 - Home Room, Los Angeles, CA.

Last Saturday, Ema and the Ghosts performed as part of the line-up for the closing reception of PLUSH at Home Room in Los Angeles. Part gallery, part mini-concert hall, it was our first time in this space (but hopefully not our last) We are no strangers to Ema and the Ghosts (and fellow full-band version, Ema and Her Lady Parts), but it has been quite awhile since we saw Ema's solo effort, and it did not disappoint.
However, this was a bittersweet occasion - Ema herself announced that she was retiring the "Ema and Her Ghosts" name and the musical material associated with it (as part of an effort to "move on" and also presumable focus on her aforementioned full band efforts) The set end up being a list of "greatest hits," and while there were a few hiccups, it was all in all a good performance. Setlist below:
