Your New Favorite Band: Death By Unga Bunga

3 Mar

Death By Unga Bunga put on one of the best live shows I’ve seen in recent memory at Underground Arts in Philadelphia

 

Norwegian Band Death By Unga Bunga came to Philly to play Underground Arts on a Thursday night and truly rocked us into next year. It was love at first listen when I first heard Death By Unga Bunga, so I expected the show to be good… but this was next level. The band blasted through their hits, and seeing them all sing separately, harmonize and slay on their instruments with so much raw energy they absolutely infected the crowd, was one of the best live music experiences of my life. They played with so much personality I couldn’t help but laugh at how good the show was. Sebastian Ulstad Olsen joined the crowd several times, even leaving the room while singing at one point, still sounding perfect while gone.

Like an epic house party show, the band only got better as they took shots and shotgunned beers offered from their Philly fans. The show went by so fast we thought they were kidding when they said it was their last song. The crowd collectively screamed, “Nooooo”, seriously, I’m not exaggerating. Luckily, they played an epically long version of “Wish I Didn’t Know” as their last song, including a  Jimi Hendrix-style moment covering Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys Are Back In Town” playing their guitars behind their heads. When they left the stage everyone thought the show must be over, it doesn’t get better than that. But to our surprise and jubilation, they came back out to play “Young Girls”, and ended the show by bowing together, kissing each other on the mouth and lip-syncing to the sounds of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”. I couldn’t have asked for a better Thursday night and am offering myself up to go on tour with this epic band. Let me know if you need a merch girl, boys. I can happily watch that show every night of the week.

They came, they saw, they slayed, and I feel truly blessed I witnessed.

Death By Unga Bunga continue their tour in Portland on Sunday, and Seattle on Monday before heading to California. For tickets and tour information click here, you do not want to miss this band live.
