Ghost Heart w/ Cains & Abels, Night Toucher

Underwriting support from:

Jan. 9 — On Saturday night, a crowd of around 200 gathered at Founders to see local band Ghost Heart perform. Special guests Night Toucher and Cains & Abels opened the show. Night Toucher, self-described as indie-progressive-rock, set the stage, followed by Cains & Abels. Cains & Abels, a Chicago-based band of four, has its roots in Grand Rapids. Three of the four grew up in the area, and all attended Calvin College.

Headliner Ghost Heart came on at about 11:30 p.m. to an excited crowd, including a handful of ribbon dancers. The band, an eclectic mix of indie rock influences, is made up of Cedric Cañero (drums, bicycle wheel, guitar, vocals), Timothy Broderick (drums, bicycle wheel and vocals), Troy Reimink (guitar, vocals) and Justin Gray (guitar, vocals). As a band that arrived on Grand Rapids' music scene only several months ago, Ghost Heart has generated a lot of buzz and cultivated a small but devoted following that sang along with the band at Saturday night's performance.
