May 1: That Ghost at the Arlene Francis Center

Born in 1990, Santa Rosa native Ryan Schmale has been a prolific and acclaimed songwriter of the last five years. Yet strangely, his lo-fi classicism under the name That Ghost is discussed and cherished more on East Coast blogs than in his own hometown. That will change with Songs Out Here, his latest and best work yet, which sheds his pop leanings for a more antique aesthetic. See him play with Amir Coyle, Teenage Sweater and Laughters on Sunday, May 1, at the Arlene Francis Center. 99 Sixth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $5. 707.528.3009.
