Get Your Halos On

When Thrift Store Halo plays the Ballydoyle Irish Pub and Restaurant in Downers Grove tomorrow night (August 4), it will be only the second time they’ve performed live in the last 17 years. One of those gigs was a dream job serving as the opening act for The Zombies at Viper Alley in Lincolnshire. Tomorrow’s show at Ballydoyle starts at 8:30, and according to the band’s Facebook page, will run for about two hours.

The Chicago-based trio of lead singer-bassist Frank Gradishar, guitarist Brent Seatter, and drummer-vocalist Scott Proce released its debut CD World Gone Mad in 1998. Guitar-driven and catchy power pop songs like “Put Me Down,” “Crashing In,” and “Fly Me Away” have stood the test of time. The musicians have kept active with other bands over the years, but it’s good to know Thrift Store Halo is back in action again. Hopefully there will be more shows and new music in the near future.
