You’ve more than likely heard your Austin Music Minute maven tell this tale before: The White Ghost Shivers is one of the first bands your humble host saw when first arriving in Austin in 2002. They played to an audience of five – two of which were working the bar – at Beerland. They were shakin’ up a spell of hot jazz, swing, basically old-timey everything with a smart-ass punk rock delivery, and it was love at first listen.

Though your AMM host has been telling people “Don’t behave!” for decades, let it be known that the White Ghost Shivers were the main inspiration for taking that life hack to the airwaves. WOO.

Tonight, the White Ghost Shivers celebrate their 20th anniversary (what?!) with a big show at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave. The music kicks off with a bang at 10 p.m.

Here’s to 20 years of shaking folks up, rattling floorboards and nerves, and even keeping it spooky. Like a big ol’ shiver down the collective spine. Show no mercy. Love you madly! So recommended.
