Phantogram… the new Sleigh Bells?

Phantogram + Light Pollution + Railbird – Bowery Ballroom – May 19

Ever since I saw Phantogram play at the Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday night, I haven’t been able to get their song “When I’m Small” out of my head.

Given the experimental style of their music and their flashy appearance, it’s hard to believe that the duo practices in a barn in upstate New York and didn’t just step off the L train, but it’s fun to imagine chic singer and keyboardist Sarah Barthel wearing pumps and a skin-tight black ensemble, head banging next to some chickens.


To see a full review of Wednesday night’s show (including info on the two opening bands), check out  my write-up for Brooklyn Vegan.
