IF YOU GO

THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE

WHEN: 8 p.m. April 6

WHERE: The Oak and the Ax, Biddeford

HOW MUCH: $8

INFO: theoakandtheax.com

WHAT ELSE: The band will also perform at 8 p.m. Thursday at Dogfish Bar and Grille, Portland.

WHAT'S ON THE GHOST'S iPOD?

"Every Man Needs a Companion," Father John Misty

"Blue Eyes," Middle Brother

"Skyo," Theodore Treehouse

"Don't Need No," Punch Brothers

"Will the Circle Be Unbroken," The Staple Singers

"Hot Knife," Fiona Apple

"Bron-Y-Aur Stomp," Led Zeppelin

"Baby, I Need Your Loving," The Four Tops

"Song for Mississippi John Hurt," John Fahey

"The Union Forever," The White Stripes

Davis: For me, songs always start fragmentally. Combinations of words generally begin the hunt to develop and expand an idea. The arduous and fascinating process of development happens independently at first, but then demands the assistance of Griffin, Sean, Matthew and Matt to bring it to reality.

When can we expect a follow-up to the "North" EP?

We hope to be back in the studio recording a full-length in the fall. We have all the material for it, but right now we are visiting studios to find the right fit and figuring out how to raise the funds to make the record we want to make.

Who are a couple of acts/musicians that you all share as a common influence?

We all came from different places of musical influence. Certainly Dylan, The Beatles, Hank Williams, Led Zeppelin, The Band, The Avett Brothers and Earl Scruggs are on the list.
