Union Transfer History

Union Transfer is a relatively new Philadelphia, Pennsylvania music venue, having opened in 2011, but it has wasted no time in becoming one of the City of Brotherly Love's hot spots. The venue is co-owned by Bowery Presents and Four Corners Management who bring in some of the top musical acts in the undergrounds scene to perform. Although the venue is new, the building in which it is located is not. The edifice was built in 1889 and has been used as the Spring Garden Farmer's Market, the Union Transfer Baggage Express Company, a tire shop, a Spaghetti Warehouse, and a trust company. The sign for Spring Garden Farmer's Market still remains emblazoned on the side of the venue's exterior. All of the biggest shows at Union Transfer sell out quickly so be sure to get your tickets from StubHub as soon as possible.


Union Transfer Events

Union Transfer is known for putting on some of the best shows in all of Philadelphia. The venue mainly specializes in indie rock but also host punk, electronic, and hip hop shows as well. Bands like Mischief Brew, Miniature Tigers, Echo and the Bunnymen, Shabazz Palaces, Sleep, the Buzzcocks, Pinback, Mineral, Sleep, Simian Mobile Disco, OK Go, Lykke Li, the Afghan Whigs, the Delta Spirit, and more have all delivered mind blowing sets at Union Transfer. If there is an exciting alternative or indie rock band coming to Philadelphia, chances are they will be hitting the stage at Union Transfer.


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

As the second largest city on the East Coast, there is always plenty to do in Philadelphia. Sports fans can get their fix by attending a Phillies MLB game, an Eagles NFL game, a 76ers NBA game, or a Flyers NHL game. There are also several colleges located in the city offering top notch collegiate athletics all year. Of course getting a cheese steak and walking to the Liberty Bell is a must for people during their first visit to the City of Brotherly Love. The University of Pennsylvania boasts the Rodin Museum which has the largest Rodin collection outside of France, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the biggest museums in the country whose steps were made famous in the movie Rocky when the titular character finished a workout running up the building's stairs and raising his arms triumphantly at the top.


Union Transfer Seating Layout

Union Transfer is able to admit up to 1,000 people for its biggest shows and every ticket is general admission. This means that if you would like to be up close to the stage during a performance you had better show up early, but even if you are not close to the stage you are sure to have an amazing time at a show at Union Transfer courtesy of its state of the art lighting and sound system.


Trivia

The first concert ever held at Union Transfer was a September 21, 2011 concert featuring Polica and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and ever since then the venue has continued to put on great shows by both touring and local Philly artists.
