February took a drummer/keyboardist from local instrumental/electronic collective A Ghost Like Me. But March brought a new drummer — Josh Newton (formerly of Dashvara) rounds out the band (with Brad Rogers on guitar, synths and loops; and Key Andrew on bass, flute, synths and loops) and has also helped to evolve the trio's sound. "A Ghost Like Me has a gone a bit more in the direction of live electronica, like Shpongle live band, Ozric Tentacles, old STS9," says Rogers. The band plays its first show with the new sound and lineup at Emerald Lounge on Friday, July 5. Old You and Opposite Box also perform. 9 p.m., $5. http://www.emeraldlounge.com.
