Cool Ghouls sounds like a Scooby Doo episode

But it’s not. The Cool Ghouls include Pat Thomas, Ryan Wong, Pat McDonald, Alex Fleshman and they are affiliated with a variety of different record labels including: Empty Cellar, Burger Records, Under the Gun, Hair Growth. This coming August they will be one of many bands to perform at the First City Festival in Monterey, California along with the likes of Dawes, Miniature Tigers and The National to name a few.

Folks around the interwebs say Cool Ghouls are “A very sick, carefully crafted, pysch/rock band.” I’m not really sure what that means but I’m assuming it is a good thing since the band is known to “restore your faith in music.”

Needless to say I’m not sure that this band likes Scooby Doo but I can totally see the mystery gang making reference to their band’s name just for fun while rolling around town in their psychedelic van.
