Sorry for the lack of posts, folks! I hadn’t been to any shows lately, but that’s recently changed. Last week I finally got to check out the Union Transfer and see Band of Skulls. I saw Band of Skulls a few years back at the North Star Bar just when they started to make their break. Needless to say, the Union Transfer is a big step up from that tiny bar. Band of Skulls put on a fun show to an enthusiastic crowd. The Union Transfer exceeded all expectations. It’s truly a beautiful venue, and it has definitely become my favorite larger venue in Philly. Here’s a video I took of Band of Skulls performing “Fires” from their first album Baby Darling Doll Face Honey.

Band of Skulls at the Union Transfer
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
