Be sure to listen to the standout tracks, “Peaches” and “Young Blood.” With their heartfelt rock and energetic sound, The Districts won’t disappoint. If your Valentine’s Day plans fall through, head on down to Union Transfer!
Sleater-Kinney — Feb. 28 — Union Transfer
Returning from an eight-year break, legendary punk rock band Sleater-Kinney is coming to Union Transfer Feb. 28. Corin Tucker, Janet Weiss and Carrie Brownstein (who you may have seen starring in “Portlandia” alongside Fred Armisen) are back in action with their stellar new album, “No Cities to Love.” Check out the tracks “Surface Envy” and “Bury Our Friends.” Who knows when Sleater-Kinney will be back in Philly again, so be sure not to miss this one!
Catfish and the Bottlemen — March 6 — MilkBoy
Welsh indie rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen are coming to MilkBoy March 6 to play a Radio 104.5-sponsored show. Coming off the recent release of their debut album, “The Balcony,” the Welsh rockers show some resemblances to the Arctic Monkeys and the Strokes. Besides the lead single, “Kathleen,” check out “Homesick” and “Pacifier” if you want to get a better idea of what the crowd at MilkBoy will be in store for March 6.
Father John Misty — April 1 — Union Transfer
Joshua Tillman, also known as Father John Misty, will be performing at Union Transfer April 1. Tillman used to be part of the folk-rock group Fleet Foxes until 2012. “I Love You, Honeybear,” Tillman’s much-anticipated follow up to his 2010 album, “Fear Fun,” is slated for release Feb. 10. After seeing his charismatic and entertaining performance of “Bored in the USA” on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” concertgoers on April 1 are sure to be in for a memorable night.
