Tonight there is an absolutely epic, dreamy, night of music taking place at one of my favorite intimate venues in Philly, North Star Bar. Chicago’s brilliant Young Man, will be performing with Philly greats Mike Bruno & Black Magic Family Band and Gemini Wolf, as well as Florida’s Peace Arrow as support.
Young Man is on tour in support of their new record, Beyond Was All Around Me, out now on Frenchkiss Records (one of my favorite labels!). The album is the closing record in a trilogy by Young Man including 2011’s Ideas of Distance and 2012’s Vol 1. The album opens with an enchanting and soothing “It’s Alright” and leads into the upbeat, cheeky “Josie”, and gets absolutely real with the third track (and my favorite) “In Time”. “In Time” is 6 minutes and 59 seconds of absolute heaven… with story telling vocals Young Man is known for, glorious guitars and drums that will force you to dance, it’s impossible not to get lost in the track. The song reminds me of some of my favorite classic rock tracks including beautiful vocal harmonies reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. “In Time” must be absolutely breathtaking to see live. The record is so addicting, I found myself starring every song in Spotify and had to stop myself out of pure embarrassment.
The show tonight is bound to be enchanting so make sure you get to North Star Bar at 8PM so you don’t miss any of the incredible bands playing! Tickets are only $10 and you can get them here or at the door tonight!
