    Waxahatchee & Hurray For The Riff Raff - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - April 16th, 2018
    Out in the Storm, Katie Crutchfield's fourth album as Waxahatchee and her second release with Merge, is the blazing result of a woman reawakened. Her most autobiographical and honest album to date, Out in the Storm is a self-reflective anchor in the story of both her songwriting and her life.

    Bishop Briggs - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - May 18th, 2018
    While those in a Tokyo karaoke bar may not have realized it, they were witnesses to a life-altering experience for four-year-old Bishop Briggs. As she sang her first song in public, Bishop fell instantly in love with performing, and her auspicious debut served not only as an indelible touchpoint, but also the initial indicator of an unmistakable identity.

    "What should I do?" That's the question Merrill Garbus asks herself halfway through "ABC 123," the stunning centerpiece of the new Tune-Yards album, I can feel you creep into my private life. In 2014, Tune-Yards released Nikki Nack, which NPR called "dazzingly imaginative," while the NME hailed it as "easily Tune-Yards' finest work," and New York Magazine dubbed it "possibly the catchiest record of the year."

    King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - June 18th, 2018
    Just when you think you have King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard sussed they throw a curveball. Australia's finest and most productive rock band have done this before, of course: while the world was still reeling from their 2014 breakthrough psych-punk masterpiece I'm In Your Mind Fuzz (2014) they casually released 2015's expectation-confounding Paper Mâché Dream Balloon (2015), a pastoral, sun-drenched acid-folk album.

    Power Trip slay us with the first new single "Firing Squad" from their anxiously awaited sophomore release Nightmare Logic, which finally sees light February 24 on Southern Lord. "Firing Squad" debuted via NPR who've described it as possessing "a certain monolithic quality Lemmy would admire: a massive rawness and a sludgy, heavy hopelessness that thrashes with punk immediacy and metal intricacy...it's a track preparing for war."
