Show Recap: Gang Of Youths at World Cafe Live!

5 Jun

Gang of Youths are an Australia-based band of megababes (soon moving to London) that we just can’t get enough of right now. Our writer/photographer Sarah went to their World Cafe Live show last Friday for the first stop of the band’s American Tour.

After the successful release of the band’s debut album The Positions Gang of Youths head out on a 10 city tour across the US before heading back to Australia to tour and we couldn’t be more excited that Philly was their first stop. Playing World Cafe Live (upstairs) it was the perfect, intimate venue to see a band that performs at a stadium-worthy level. Blown away by their big sound and their signature brand of rock and roll, the crowd couldn’t help but be knocked out by their musically tight performance and raw energy. With hair flying and slaying riffs, the audience left the show ready to go on tour with the band just to experience the show again! Check out photos below and don’t miss Gang Of Youths on tour!

Philly show NOT to be missed: UK’s finest SLAVES play Milkboy TONIGHT!!!!

10 Mar
Slaves Cher Dunn

SLAVES head to Milkboy tonight to rock you into next week. Don’t miss this epic show!

 

U.K. Punk duo SLAVES are one of my favorite bands on record and off, putting on one of the best live shows you will ever see. They’re a band you will never get tired of seeing live, bringing so much raw energy and intensity to delivering their songs to a sweaty, body-thrashing crowd-because let’s face it, there’s no other reaction to their music. After releasing their new album Take Control Slaves are heading to Milkboy tonight, Boston tomorrow playing at Great Scott, and Rough Trade in NYC on Sunday before headlining a very sick lineup at Huw Stephen’s party via BBC Radio 1 Presents at Latitude 30 at 1AM on March 14th at SXSW. You don’t want to miss seeing Slaves perform this epic new album live.

 

Tickets to tonight’s show at Milkboy are $17 and available here or at the door while tickets last. The show kicks off at 8:30PM with Lion in the Mane as support, so make sure you get their on time to see both bands!
