It’s always a bummer to see a great local band call it quits, especially one that’s repped the Classic City as well as DeLand, FL, transplants Roadkill Ghost Choir have. The brothers-in-arms—and brothers IRL—are retiring the name in pursuit of other creative outlets, and they’ll be riding off into the sunset with a farewell show at the Caledonia. Over an eight-year career, the group landed a spot on “Letterman,” showcased at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza and issued some seriously stellar recordings—most recently, 2017’s False Youth Etcetera, which found the Shepards infusing their twangy rock with touches of ’80s synth textures and Springsteen-esque epics. T. Hardy Morris and Grand Vapids will provide emotional support.
