First/Last-Lowly, The Tree Ghost

"When Andrew Arbogast decided he wanted to make music, a seed was planted. Try as he might to nourish it alone, a pursuit of a singer-songwriter career was too solitary and left him unfulfilled. The roots had begun to grow, the seed had sprouted, but something was missing. He needed a band. Thankfully, long-time friend Emily McKitrick and Andrew's then-roommate, Joseph Piedmonte, joined him in a quest to nurture the fledgling music project that would become Lowly the Tree Ghost."

The indie folk band travels down I-76 from Cleveland to play at Howler's this upcoming Saturday night. I want to thank Emily McKitrick (Keys/Vocals) and Andrew Arbogast (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Emily McKitrick: Michael Jackson “Dangerous”.

Favorite album of all time?
Andrew:Catch for Us the Foxes” mewithoutYou.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?

Emily: The Beach Boys.
Andrew: KISS.

Last concert?
Emily: Tobacco.

Favorite concert ever?
Emily: When I saw WHY? in Pittsburgh.
Andrew: Any mewithoutYou concert.

Least favorite concert?
Emily: Probably when I saw the Mars Volta and Cedric was sick and spitting a lot of gunk out, so they had to end it after about 20 minutes.

Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
Emily: Lots of good shows played and seen in Pittsburgh – it reminds me of Cleveland until I hear the Pittsburghese.
Andrew: Primanti Brothers... and why not?

Thanks, guys. That Mars Volta show sounds gross, Emily. What a bummer.
