Philly natives Jukebox the Ghost performed at Union Transfer on 3/15 (read show preview here). The openers for the show were Matt Pond and The Spring Standards. Jukebox the Ghost are currently finishing out their national headlining tour in follow-up of their 2012 LP Safe Travels. You can see the remainder of their tour dates here.

Jukebox the Ghost have come a very long way. The last time I saw them in Philly (in 2008), they were performing in front of a barely crowded audience at the much smaller North Star Bar – that tour was in support of their excellent debut LP Let Live and Let Ghosts. Five years and 2 albums later and they’re playing to a packed audience at Union Transfer. On their latest album, they continue their tradition of super poppy piano-rock (a la Ben Folds), but they tackle more emotional themes than on prior releases. You can listen to Safe Travels in its entirety on Spotify. Below is the official music video for “Don’t Let Me Fall Behind” from Safe Travels.
