Phantogram w/Bad Things Tonight at Marathon Music Works

Our caption contest for this show is still ongoing, and we'll pick a winner at noon today.

It seems like just last month New York electro-pop duo Phantogram was hanging in Music City, filming a music video in and playing a show at Marathon Music Works. Actually, it was October, and since then, members Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter have released their sophomore full-length, Voices. It’s a record that demonstrates more than ever the duo’s flair for meshing kinetic, EDM-like rhythms with the substance and musicianship of ’80s and ’90s trip-hop and shoegaze acts. There’s also more than a touch of Phil Collins in the grand synth swells and vocal refrain of “Never Going Home,” a song that features contributions from Flaming Lip Steven Drozd. With all its cool, lush, nocturnal grooves, the Voices material promises to translate well in a live setting.

Tonight's show at Marathon Music Works starts at 8 p.m. and costs $23 at the door. L.A.’s Bad Things — a band that features snowboarder Shaun White on guitar — will open.
