November shows to look out for

I’ve trawled the internet looking for my best concert recomendations for November.  Here are my personal picks:

11/2 – St. Vincent at the Union Transfer

11/4 – Frank Turner with Andrew Jackson Jihad at the TLA (Sold Out)

11/4 – Mister Heavenly (members of Man Man, Modest Mouse, and Islands) at the First Unitarian Church

11/11 – Manchester Orchestra with The Dear Hunter at the Electric Factory

11/25 – Reel Big Fish and Streetlight Manifesto at the House of Blues Atlantic City

11/26 – Brand New with O’Brother at the House of Blues Atlantic City (Sold Out)

Check out another Philly music blog, The Swollen Fox, for a comprehensive list of shows in the city, and don’t forget r5 Productions.  Just because it’s not on here, doesn’t mean it’s not an awesome show.  A few of the shows are already sold out, as I noted.  It’s always possible to find tickets to sold out shows without spending an exorbitant amount as long as you’re willing to take your chances and wait until the day of the show.  There’s almost always a few people who end up selling extra tickets for face value.  All these bands are worth your time and attention.  From the Reel Big Fish and Streetlight Manifesto show, which should prove to be fun at the very least, to the mysterious brooding of Brand New’s performance (what can we expect from them this time?  new material?  a set list of fan favorites?  hints of a follow-up to 2009’s Daisy?) at the same venue, these shows are all worth looking into.

About kategasch

I'm an English Major and Journalism Minor at Rowan University. From that you can probably deduce that I love literature and writing, which is absolutely true. I'm passionate about a lot of things, but I think my biggest passion is music. Since I was about 12 or 13, music has been a huge part of my life. I started going to shows when I was around 14 and in the 7 years since then, I've been to more shows than I can recall, at least without the help of my ticket stub diary. I generally don't go to a lot of big shows. I prefer intimate venues--venues so small that the bands have to walk past you to get off and on the stage. Bars and basements where sometimes, if you're lucky, those 200 other people love the band just as much as you do and fill the room with energy that can't be replicated. View all posts by kategasch
