Phantogram at Upstate Concert Hall

phantogram 2011-11

Just announced: Phantogram will be back in town to play at the Upstate Concert Hall December 7. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 4 at 10 am. The first 102 tickets will be $10.27 thanks to EQX -- otherwise, they're $18 ahead / $20 day of. (Update: The $10.27 tickets are only available online via Ticketmaster.)

As you well know, this will be a homecoming show for Phantogram, originally from the Saratoga area. Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel are on a headlining tour to support a new four-song EP out today -- and an album that will apparently arrive sometime later on. Two tracks off the EP are embedded after the jump.

We're guessing this is the start of another rise in Phantogram's profile. They'll be on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Thursday night. They recently scored their first national magazine cover. Since their last EP, in 2011, they've been recording with Big Boi, and doing weird stuff with the Flaming Lips. And their music also keeps popping up in commercials.

Comments

Is there more info on the deal for the first 102 tickets sold? I assume those would have to be bought in person somewhere, not from Ticketmaster?

I am beside myself with glee. My love for this band grows knowing that they appreciate their first fans by always making time for us on their tour. Following their success is just awesome. Go Phantogram!

@Paul: I checked with UCH -- the $10.27 are only available online via Ticketmaster.
