Philly show NOT to be missed xx: Crystal Fighters at Union Transfer tomorrow!!!!!

I am so stoked for Monday night at Union Transfer!!! I will be reunited with one of my favorite dance bands from Spain, Crystal Fighters, after seeing their epic Latitude 30 show at SXSW in March. Starting their North American tour in Philadelphia, Crystal Fighters will be embarking on a 14 date tour ending in San Diego on June 6th. Crystal Fighters are one of the most interesting bands I’ve seen live, they make epic dance music using their voices, Basque instruments, and synthesizers and watching them perform live is an experience: a perfect exchange of energy between the fans and the band. Their show at SXSW turned so quickly into a crazy fun, sweaty, sing-a-long dance party and I expect nothing less for their show at Union Transfer Monday. Crystal Fighters debut album Star Of Love is out now with an extra US-only track, a very dreamy “Earth Island”. Star of Love definitely a part heavy part of my summertime soundtrack. Some of my favorite tracks from the album include “Follow” which was the first song I heard from them last year, “Xtatic Truth”, steamy sing-along “Champion Sound”, drum heavy “I Do This Everyday”, the beautifully choral “At Home”, and the epic closing track “With You”. It’s hard to pick one favorite from an album that is so so electric, fun, and danceable. It’s the perfect album to put on when you are getting ready to go out, on your way out, while you’re out… as long as you like to dance. Even if you don’t like to dance, when listening to Crystal Fighters, it’s hard not to! The show is tomorrow night at Union Transfer tickets are only $12, and I hope to see you there! Usually, you can find me dancing like crazy with a camera somewhere in the front, so come say hi! If you don’t live in Philly, check out their tour dates below. Make sure to pick up your copy of Star of Love if you don’t have it already from your favorite local record store or here.
