Electro-pop duo Phantogram has strikingly few dates in the New England area. In fact, they have just one, which is a shame, considering a good portion of their dates are selling out. We're going to make the trek to Boston for this one, because, well, they're releasing their aptly named album Three and we feel like electro-dancing our ass off. Possibly to a single like this one. This would be our first time catching Barthel and Carter, and we're certainly excited to feel the vibe of this kind of show. If it's anything like the bust-a-move-cause-you-gotta-groove Three, this one might happen to be a wholly tolerable (slam-your-drink-and-bring-your-dance) party. That's our forecast on this one; most likely we'll see y'all there.
