When it first opened at its Historic Wayne Avenue location, Ghostlight Coffee was known for staying open late, rearranging the seats, and creating a local music scene of its own. Now, over 10 years later, the team at Ghostlight is bringing live music back to their Wayne Avenue shop as a part of their continue efforts to support local artists and build community.
The first Ghostlight After Hours show will take place this Friday, February 3, featuring local singer-songwriter Emi. moving forward, the team aims to host After Hours every other Friday featuring different local musicians. A variety of zero-proof drinks and cocktails will be available via The Bottleshop by Ghostlight as well as a limited coffee menu. The coffee shop will close for regular service at 4pm and reopen for After Hours at 6:30pm.
“My name is Emi, I’m a Dayton local Singer/Songwriter. For me, music is primarily therapeutic. I travel to the introspective landscape of my anxiety and depression and mix it up with an upbeat indie-pop vibe.
I’m inspired by artists like half•alive, Death Cab for Cutie, Cage the Elephant, and Tessa Violet. And I shamelessly still listen to some early 2000’s Pop hits.
I’ll be performing a collection of some favorites from artists that have influenced me over the years, peppered in with a few originals to spice it up a bit!”
