Phantogram Show Preview


Author: David Heinrich
Phantogram are one of the coolest acts out there right now, and we’re super lucky that they’ll be joining us at the Orpheum Theater this Monday. The dark-indie-electronic-rock duo of Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter from Upstate New York is stopping in Madison during their spring tour before they set out on a busy summer tour. They’re playing the festival circuit this summer, with appearances scheduled at Coachella, Osheaga, Sasquatch, Wayhome, Forecastle, Firefly, Governor’s Ball, and potentially Lollapalooza as well. They’re touring behind their most recent release Three, but will also likely draw tracks from their previous albums and EPs.

Their sound is one that’s really unique and unlike most stuff you’d hear on alternative and indie radio, combining elements of indie rock, electro-pop, and They’re a busy band, playing festivals and shows last year as Big Grams, their collaboration act with rapper Big Boi, while working on their own music as well. They’re two of the hardest working and most passionate musicians out there right now, and I couldn’t be more excited for them to make another visit to Madison. Their show will not disappoint. It’s sure to be filled with crazy lights and great music, the atmosphere in the Orpheum will be electric. I can’t wait to jam to Phantogram’s classics like “Don’t Move” and “When I’m Small” as well as new album tracks like “Answer” and “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” with other Madison music fans.
