Incubus announce new music and summer tour with Jimmy Eat World!!!!

6 Feb


Just when you were playing A Crow Left Of The Murder on repeat reminiscing about the simpler times of the Bush presidency (and how fucked up it is that they were “simpler times”)… Incubus has announced that they are releasing new music and going on tour this summer with your other favorite band Jimmy Eat World!!! Further proof that Incubus loves us and wants us to be happy.

Something about this tour announcement makes me feel like someone on the Incubus team really wanted to make my life this year. I’ve loved Incubus since I was 13 and true love lasts a lifetime. Most of my “On this Day” reminders on Facebook are me at various Incubus shows over the years and to be completely honest, they are one band I actually miss while they are on breaks/ recording. Yeah, I’m a fucking megafan and I don’t care who knows it!!!


Incubus announced they would be releasing a new single, “Nimble Bastard” on February 16th from their upcoming album, due to be released in April (my birthday month conveniently). As if that wasn’t great enough, Incubus just announced a summer tour with none other than Jimmy Eat World. This tour will be part of a Live Nation promotion called “Ticket To Rock” which will allow music fans to purchase tickets for multiple shows at select venues for a discounted price. Check out the dates below and look for me at most of them!

Philly show NOT to be missed xx: Temples at Kung Fu Necktie TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!

22 Nov


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.

Philly show NOT to be missed xx: Disclosure TONIGHT at Union Transfer!!!!!

19 Mar

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!
