Last night, the Ghost Inside held their first live performance since the band’s tragic bus crash in 2015. The band performed their “one night” only show at The Shrine in Los Angeles with opening acts including This Wild Life, Trade Wind and Wage War’s Cody Quistad.

In late 2015, the Ghost Inside were involved in a serious bus accident that claimed the lives of their driver and everyone in the other vehicle. Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk lost his leg from the accident, and the rest of the band and crew members were hospitalized in critical condition. The band survived the accident but have faced an arduous road to recovery since then.

The announcement of the “one night” only show marked the band’s first performance in four years, with tickets selling out five minutes after the announcement.

For fans who couldn’t make it to the show, the band held a pop-up shop with select merch outside the venue.

The band had plenty of support from fellow artists leading up to the event and following the show.


Taking the stage for their sold-out show, the Ghost Inside played a nearly 20 song set with footage of the event quickly surfacing online.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
