Union Transfer was turned into a disco October 14th with The Knocks. This was their first time back in Philadelphia since 2019, and the energy definitely showed how much the city missed them.
The night opened up with Juliana Madrid, and she opened the night with a really cool indie pop vibe. She claimed this to be her first ever tour, and you truly could not even guess that from her stage presence. The crowd was captivated from beginning to end even though from many people I spoke to – this was their first time ever hearing Julianas music.

Next onstage came LA’s own indie pop band, Cannons. The moment vocalist Michelle Joy took the mic the entire crowd could not stop dancing. Their welcoming energy was so infectious, and drew everyone in to enjoy the show as one. There were people there dressed inspired by their music videos, and even a young girl who was experiencing her first concert and claimed Cannons is her absolute favorite band. Beginning to end, it was so special to see everyone in the room smiling.

Last to take the stage was New York’s own, The Knocks. The electronic music duo lit the entire room up the moment they started bringing the continued energy their hometown show the night before brought to them. Not one person was standing still their entire set which consisted of a mix of music stretching across all of their discography, including one of their newer singles “Slow Song”.

Every single person in attendance left Union Transfer with a smile on that night. With a disco ball hanging high, and the endless lights bringing everyone in – the night exuded such a fun energy. Hopefully these artists make a return back to Philadelphia soon – they definitely brought a night full of positive energy that started the weekend right.
