Holy. Shit. I am definitely partied out from the glorious heaven that is SXSW. While falling asleep at my desk and drinking a caffeine diet, nothing is stopping me from seeing Disclosure again TONIGHT at Union Transfer. I’ve been waiting a long time to see the two glorious producers from the UK to show face in Philly after seeing them in NYC and, of course, last week in Texas.
Disclosure are releasing their debut album this year, and after burning a hole through their mixtapes and seeing some of those songs performed live, I can not wait to get my hands on a copy. When I saw them play at Fader Fort last week, I was surrounded by non-fans at the show, but that didn’t stop me from dancing as hard as I could, making everyone else around me feel weird and uncomfortable until they started dancing too. Another pleasant surprise was when the Howard started singing over a new track,”F For You”. They haven’t released any tracks like this before, and I was stunned by how gorgeous his voice was. Once you hear it, you can’t believe they haven’t done that already, on all of their tracks. But thank goddess they leave room for other talent as some of my favorite artists have sung on their tracks, including Sam Smith, Ria Ritchie, and AlunaGeorge. Seeing Disclosure live is an experience. They don’t just mess around with turntables, they sing, play bass guitar, play drums, even instruments that seem minuscule…like egg shakers… add so much more to their live sound and performance. I always have a major dance workout when seeing them live and I can’t wait to repeat it tonight.
By some miracle the show is not sold out and cheap as hell, so make sure you get your tickets here or at Union Transfer tonight! The show starts at 8:30 and tickets are $17. See you on the dance floor!
