Ghost

When: Sat., Oct. 17 2015

Corpse-painted pontiff Papa Emeritus III may not be getting the media attention his Vatican counterpart commanded during last month's American pilgrimage, but it's not for want of trying. The Dave Grohl-endorsed frontman and his Swedish band Ghost are deep in the throes of their own U.S. tour, which comes to Summit Music Hall (1902 Blake St., Denver, thesummitmusichall.com, $27.60) at 8 tonight. As with previous Ghost albums, their recently released Meliora is more melodic and ethereal than you'd expect from a band often lumped into today's black metal scene, but that didn't stop it from reaching No. 1 in Sweden or the Top 10 here in the States. No word at this point on whether Papa and his nameless ghouls will be paying their own visit to Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, but we live in hope. — Bill Forman
