Weekend Warrior, August 11 - 13

Weekend Warrior, August 11 - 13

Locals via Lititz and The Deli Philly’s 2013 Emerging Artist of the Year, The Districts will be congregating at a sold-out show this evening at Union Transfer to celebrate the release of their new album Popular Manipulations (Fat Possum). Still evoking an earnest pit-in-the-stomach power, the band’s sound ventures into more polished production depths on their latest release. Utilizing control within a hallowing, personal, vocal force and the detail of densely woven instrumentation, The Districts tap into unified sonic waves. Tonight, they’ll be joined by The Spirit of the Beehive’s tumultuous torrent of psych and the enchanting yet eruptive rock of Abi Reimold. A plethora of young, Philly talent will be taking over the old Spaghetti Warehouse! – Michael Colavita
