This might be the longest countdown I’ve had for a show in a while. When I found out Temples were finally coming to Philadelphia months ago, I practically made an advent calendar I was so excited.
Temples, a band from the Midlands, England, had my heart at first listen…and then second, and then third. I realized with each track that they released this band was really special, bringing something new, and magical yet reminiscing to psych rock…and they don’t even have an album out yet. In fact, their debut album Sun Structures is due out through the UK’s Heavenly Recordings on February 10th and February 11th in the US on Fat Possum! You can pre-order the album now in the UK here and the US here.
Sure I can joke about how beautiful and British they are, and how incredible their hair is, but at the end of the day their dreamy, trippy, epic jams are what gets the blood pumping faster through my veins. I absolutely cannot wait to hear those tracks live, this Saturday at Kung Fu Necktie. This will be the band’s first show in Philly and you don’t want to miss it! This is definitely a concert you are going to be bragging about how you were there to everyone you meet from now on.
The show tomorrow will also feature the bands Needle Points and Bonzai and is only $10, you can get your tickets here or at the door. The show starts at 8PM so make sure you are there on time and don’t miss any of these stellar bands.
