If you stepped foot into Union Transfer on Friday, you’d look down at your ticket a few times to double check if you were in the right venue to see Okkervil River.

The lights on the small stage illuminated a backdrop depicting two sketched out trees with fall leaves. It was reminiscent of the background in the children’s corner of nearly any Barnes and Noble. The music that played as the anxious crowd awaited sounded like the beginnings of waiting music for a theme park ride. You know, the part where park employees ...

Ticket Giveaway: Okkervil River & Typhoon @ Union Transfer

Source: The Swollen Fox

Okkervil RiverThis Friday, Union Transfer will host a stacked indie-rock bill. Okkervil River and Typhoon are set to co-headline with support from Lady Lamb the Beekeeper and Hundred Visions. Sure, you could go see Childish Gambino down the road at the Electric Factory, or St. Paul & the Broken Bones in Fishtown, but the quality of this Union Transfer bill from start to finish is why I chose it as one of the five shows you should not miss in March.

The reason we bring this up again is because we have a pair of tickets to the show ...

Arcade FireIt’s the last day of February, which means spring is only three weeks away and the concert schedule is growing even stronger. It’s been a great year so far, even through this brutal winter, and March kicks things up a notch with big names, names that are about to be big, and up-and-comers that we hope will one day be big. It was a tough time picking just five shows, but here are the ones we urge you to get out of the house for in March.

Communion @ Underground Arts – Thursday, March 6th

2013 year in reviewIt’s been a fun year and it’s been fun to look back on it all week. We’ve got lists of favorite concerts, songs, local music, and even a slideshow of concert photos from throughout the year. Finally, we’ve arrived at the end of the week and the last lists of this annual review. And that means our favorite albums of 2013.

Favorite is the key word here, and has been all week. These year-end lists are not meant to call these songs, concerts, or albums the “best” of the year, simply my personal favorites.

As I’ve been saying all ...

Welcome to an extra-large edition of our weekly “radio” playlist. Less than three weeks remain in 2013, leaving us with one last normal edition of Swollen Fox Radio. Next week, I’ll be using this space to reveal my favorite songs of the year, and the final edition of the year will be Christmas-themed. So that leaves us looking ahead not just to next week’s concerts, but the remaining days behind that as well.

There has also been quite a bit of great 2014 shows announced in the last week, which helps push the playlist ...

Typhoon are returning to Philly, only five months after their last show at Johnny Brenda’s and their recent appearance on World Cafe. The band plays Union Transfer on Friday, March 28th. This time around, the 11 piece band will certainly have more room to spread out, but that likely won’t prevent them from being able to let their densely layered, joyful art pop flow. Go here for tickets and more information about the show.
