The Glitch Mob Show Philly Some Brotherly Love
Last Friday night, Ana Sia, Penthouse Penthouse, and The Glitch Mob performed in front of a packed house in the City of Brotherly Love.
My night started off very rushed and hurried, fighting traffic into the city to make it to the show in time. I arrived at The Electric Factory around 9:30/10pm and happened to miss the opening act Penthouse, Penthouse; however, you can listen here: Soundcloud
I walked into Ana Sia’s set and right off the bat, her music caught my attention; I felt like I was in an underground warehouse. I hurried over to the side stage to get a better view and find out more about this curious girl. I watched Ana Sia dance on stage as she performed on two CDJs to what seemed like an almost full house. Everyone was responding really well to her choice of music; everyone was moving to her rhythm. I highly suggest checking her music out here: Ana Sia Soundcloud
I also came across her tour journal she has been updating along her adventure: Check It Out
As Ana’s set was winding down, I met with some friends to catch up and smoke a cigarette. A few puffs from the end of my smoke and I hear a thundering quake of bass roll out. I turn and grab my friend and rush to catch The Glitch Mob take the stage.
Three guys appeared on stage and took position behind what looked like a futuristic space station command center with three independent control surfaces. If the set and stage design were categories in the Grammys, these guys would hands down take that award this year. Five minutes in, and I know I am in for a hell of a night.
The Glitch Mob tore through their new Album: Love, Death, Immortality without a hiccup; it’s hard to believe this was only their third date on the tour. Their live show was spectacular! I go to all types of concerts, but they really outdid themselves with this one. Watch some of it here.
A friend informed me that the show was slated to end early, at 12am. I was very upset initially by this information, but to tell you the truth, the Mob threw down so hard that this kid feels like they played til 3am. I don’t know if it was the best crowd, the best performance, the best venue, or just the best night, but I had to sleep for two days after this event. Thank you Glitch Mob, thank you!
