Philly shows NOT to be missed xx: Beat Connection, Teen Daze, and White Arrows at Kung Fu Necktie // Tanlines at Making Time TONIGHT!!!

3 Jul

God Bless America!!! Beat Connection is in Philly tonight at Kung Fu Necktie, and I couldn’t be more excited to see/hear them perform songs off their gorgeous follow up to Surf Noir called The Palace Garden out now! Beat Connection are a dreamy bunch of boys that make beautiful, fun, dance music perfect for your summer and life soundtrack. Started by Jordan Koplowitz and Reed Juenger in 2008, the boys brought in more members to really see this project through. When they played Philly at First Unitarian Church, they had added drummer Jarred Katz who brought an incredible energy and sound to the live show. At SXSW this March, I got to see them with their final full band which includes vocalist/guitarist Tom Eddy. I had the incredible opportunity of interview these hilarious and rad dudes, and can’t wait to be reunited with them tonight at Kung Fu Necktie. The show starts at 9pm tonight and you can buy tickets for only $10 here.

Make sure you get there right at 9PM to see the stellar opening bands White Arrows and Teen Daze!

Vancouver electronic dream TeenDaze has a brilliant debut album All Of Us, Together and it’s out now so make sure you get your copy if you don’t have it already.

Los Angeles foxes White Arrows also have an epic debut album out now for your absolute listening pleasure. Dry Land Is Not A Myth dropped on June 19th through Votiv. Another incredible album to dance the night away to, including two of my favorite tracks “Get Gone” and “Roll Forever”.

Needless to say, tonight is going to be an absolutely epic and dreamy dance party at KFN due to all parties involved. I CAN’T WAIT.

After the show I am heading over to Bamboo Bar to catch TANLINES at Making Time’s You’re Welcome America RAD-BQ!!!! That’s right!! To ring in the 4th of July Tanlines are playing tonight in Philly at Bamboo Bar at 11pm. I already told you how obsessed I am with Tanlines new record Mixed Emotions which is out now, and now is our chance to see those songs performed live and dance away into the early morning hours of everyone’s (at least America’s and my) favorite holiday! You can get advance tickets here for $10 or get your tickets at the door for $15! Check out the Facebook event for more info on the RAD-BQ and specials, and I will see you on the dance floor tonight!!
