Electric Grandmother at Goodbye Blue Monday tonight

While the Electric Grandmother first took shape while he was living in Hawaii, it wasn’t until Aurora, Ohio–native Pete Faust moved to Columbus in 2001 that his musical project really came to fruition. Once back in Ohio, Faust and his wife Mary Alice Hamnett began performing their self-branded sitcom-core live and self-releasing CDR albums. As the description indicates, these albums consisted largely of songs detailing Faust’s obsession with situation comedies from the ’80s like Golden Girls, Full House and Doogie Howser. Live, the duo accompanies their music with video projections and special effects like bubbles and balloons. Tonight, the couple, who now lives in Washington DC, will be bringing this spectacle to Goodbye Blue Monday, where they will be performing songs from their upcoming album, Love in an Escalator. Check out a song from the album, “Mrs. Doubtfire,” below.
