Lord Huron — Union Transfer — May 1
A year removed from a very successful debut album “Lonesome Dreams,” indie folk band Lord Huron is coming through town to Union Transfer May 1. What better way to spend a Friday night than by seeing this band play songs off of their latest album, “Strange Trails?” Be sure to get there in time to see the opener Hamilton Leithauser who is a real treat to see live! His song “I’ll Never Love Again” will knock your socks off.
San Fermin — Union Transfer — May 7
A member of the very hipster-sounding genre of baroque pop, San Fermin is a Brooklyn band started by the Brooklyn based songwriter and composer Ellis Ludwig-Leone. San Fermin got on the map back in 2013 with their very catchy song “Sonsick” and have just released their second album “Jackrabbit” April 21. Go out and see them May 7 at Union Transfer!
Tigers Jaw — Union Transfer — May 8
Tigers Jaw has gone from playing in the Drexel University basement venue the Flux to playing at Union Transfer May 8. The band originated in Scranton, Pennsylvania, but they also associate themselves with the Philly music scene. After a brief hiatus, the band is back at it with this U.S. tour. They show may sell out so be sure to get your tickets early!
Hop Along — Union Transfer — May 9
Philadelphia’s own Hop Along will be making a stop at Union Transfer May 9 to cap off a week of great concerts. The indie-folk-rock band recently released their latest album, “Painted Shut” online — it won’t be available in stores until May 5 — which features the stellar song “Texas Funeral.” It should be a great atmosphere as this band comes back to the DIY scene where they got their start.
