Phantogram Tour Schedule
The American electronic pop band, Phantogram, has made its hometown of Greenwich, New
York proud by becoming one of the top indie groups of music today. The band refers to itself as "street-beat" psych pop and
both critics and fans agree that Phantogram uniquely blends genres of music to create its remarkable sounds. Phantogram is
finding huge success and is a darling of the festival circuit, playing events like Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Coachella
in the United States. The band once known as Charlie Everyone, Phantogram, is now being played and performing everywhere.
Taking this success and running with it, Phantogram has toured almost nonstop across the globe and picking up more and more
fans as it goes. This winter, Phantogram is playing across North America at some of the best spots to play. Take a look at
the StubHub schedule to see when Phantogram will be playing venues like the following: The Music Hall London in London, Ontario;
Garrick Centre at the Marlborough in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Sugar Nightclub Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia; McMenamins
Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon; Bayou Music Center in Houston, Texas; and the SnowGlobe Music Festival at the Bijou
Park Lake Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe, California. Phantogram in concert should not be missed.
are two geniuses that make up the duo, Phantogram: Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel. The twosome have been friends since attending
middle school, but did not start playing around with music together until Sarah returned from having attending college. It
coincided with Josh Carter's previous band not being fruitful. When Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel found themselves back in
their home town of Greenwich, they started to create music together. It did not take long before the friends and band mates
realized that their creative styles worked well collaboratively. In the early days, Phantogram went by the name Charlie Everywhere.
It was when Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel signed with BBE in 2009 that the band's name was changed to Phantogram. In 2009,
Phantogram did more than simply change its name; the band released its self-titled EP. Later, Phantogram released its second
EP entitled, Running From the Cops. A significant buzz was created around the released EPs within the music scene and Phantogram
made a switch to Barsuk Records with the aim of growing its reach.
As more and more interest started to surround Phantogram
within the music world, the duo was asked to collaborate with other artists. One of the artists was Big Boi from Outkast who
asked if Phantogram would collaborate on a few songs: "Objectum Sexuality," "CPU" and "Lines." The collaborations with other
artists did not end with Big Boi, as Phantogram also worked with The Flaming Lips on the song "You Lust."
It was not long after the genesis of Phantogram that it became a big name in the indie pop rock scene.
Like the bands that traversed similar paths to success, Phantogram was welcomed at numerous music festivals across the globe
and invited as guests to appear on shows like Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Life. On these shows, Phantogram
played its hit songs for a natural audience that secured its position as a must see up and coming indie rock band.
made its breakthrough in 2009, Phantogram has released two studio albums, as well as four EPs. All of these releases have
performed exceptionally well and the critics have been kind. Accordingly, there are a number of hits to come out of these
releases like "Fall in Love," "Black Out Days," "When I'm Small," and "Mouthful of Diamonds." Some of Phantograms's songs
have also been featured in a number of television shows like The Originals, Shameless and Law & Order SVU. What is more
is that the song "Lights" was featured on the soundtrack for the blockbuster film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Like Katniss
Everdeen in the movie The Hunger Games or Jennifer Lawrence in Hollywood, Phantogram is on fire. What is clear is that Phantogram
knows how to make music that audiences love and that they have the capacity to put on excellent live performances. Get your
tickets now and make this winter extra warm with Phantogram by your side.
and Josh Carter have known each other since middle school and opened up about their long friendship during an interview with
Mashable. According to Sarah Barthel, "We met through my sister Becky, who was good friends with Josh. They were in the same
grade, so he would come over and he lived in this little cross-street in town where all the kids would hang out because we
all lived on the same little street called 'the crossroads.' We would just hang out there every day after school. I had a
trampoline, and our neighbors had a trampoline, and the guys across the street had a porch and we would just take turns hanging
out in different spots." What is interesting is how Sarah considered herself awkward and Josh incredibly cool during those
early years, as they would smoke in a graveyard and skateboard. While the two of them shared many experiences together during
their youth, it was not until they ran into one another at church years later that they realized that their shared experiences
of trampolines, graveyards and skateboarding would be joined by making music. When Josh Carter showed Sarah Barthel what he
had been working on and asked her to sing, she agreed. The two eventually evolved into Phantogram and have been making quite
the go of it.
The Phantogram Live Show Experience
There are a few words to describe a live show performance
of Phantogram, but the most important is the word, dance. Audiences love to dance to this electronic pop band and cannot get
enough of it. As explained during the interview with Mashable, Phantogram initially didn't play live shows and focused on
simply recording music. While they have grown and expanded as musicians, it is important to take this opportunity to see them
while they are out and about on tour.
