Scottish indie rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks have the best band name I’ve heard in a long time and it doesn’t hurt that the group’s music is incredible as well. They write great songs and they put on a killer live show.
The band’s recently-released live album, “E Rey: Live in Philadelphia,” which was recorded at the final show of their 2012 US tour, at Union Transfer properly shows off what a Jetpacks live show is live. But why not experience them firsthand? They’ll be playing at the Camel on Sunday, March 9.
Glasgow two-piece Honeyblood will be opening in support of their self-titled debut album. The duo pulls elements of lo-fi punk-rock, indie-pop and classic rootsy songwriting that help give the album something of an truly unique feel.
