The Districts

New The Districts LP Available for Streaming

A Flourish And A Spoil, The Districts' sophomore LP and full-length debut on Fat Possum Records will be officially released on February 10. However, for those who can’t wait any longer, it is currently available for streaming via NPR’s First Listen. The Lititz natives turned locals continue delivering the goods unleashing songs that work the ebb and flow of emotion while capturing the highs and lows in a jarring blend of intense vocals and instrumentation. Take a listen, and catch the band in person February 14 at Union Transfer with Pine Barons and newly added to the bill, The Lawsuits.


New Video: "4th and Roebling" (HotBox Session) - The Districts

Below is the HotBox Session video with The Districts that we mentioned earlier. The fellas are getting ready for the release of their forthcoming LP A Flourish and a Spoil on February 10 via Fat Possum. Check out the performance of "4th and Roebling," a song that is sure to be a concert and new record favorite. You can catch it live on Valentine's Day when their tour makes a stop for a little hometown love at Union Transfer.


The Districts "Pop-up" Show & More

The Districts are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming full-length album A Flourish and a Spoil on February 10 via Fat Possum. They already closed out last year with a not-so-secret-show opening for mewithouYou (a.k.a. Thy Foes Profanely Rage) at the First Unitarian Church, under their alias Eight Legged Prawn. Tonight, The Districts will be doing a "pop-up" show for about 25 or so fans (guest list closed) that will double as a recording session with Out of Town Films. They also recently revisited HotBox Studios to re-capture a bit of magic that was found on their viral video for "Funeral Beds" so expect plenty of live versions of songs from the group's new LP to be rolling out in the coming months.


New Track: "Peaches" - The Districts

With their LP A Flourish and a Spoil due out in roughly a month on February 10 via Fat Possum, Lititz natives turned Philly residents The Districts have released a new single “Peaches.” The contemplative song has a relaxed, rolling tempo that escalates at contextual points, searing into your skull. You can catch the crew on February 14 at Union Transfer. (Photo by Ryan Farber)


"Eight Legged Prawn" & Lithuania Opening for "Thy Foes Profanely Rage" at FUC Dec. 30

Sometimes, when things are tough, it’s a good practice to head to church; First Unitarian Church - that is. Tonight, an exciting air of mystery (that's not so mysterious) surrounds the guest performer who will step up to the pulpit. Word is that those "Eight Legged Prawn" were shipped in from Lititz. Their singer’s vocals ache and growl in a heartfelt tremor that can shake you to the core with resonance, and instrumentally, they expertly manipulate, gradually climbing an incline and then letting it all show upon reaching the summit. Oh and their long-awaited LP is due out in February via an overweight marsupial. This evening, they will be joined at this reaffirming spectacle by Lithuania, the pairing of Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick, who will wet our appetite for their forthcoming full-length Hardcore Friends via Seagreen Records, with the Domesticated God 7”, an instant surge of infectious raw-edged rock with a slightly disorienting psyche conclusion. "Thy Foes Profanely Rage" (another not so mysterious mystery) headline this evening delivering a sermon you won’t want to miss. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 8:30pm, $17, All Ages - Michael Colavita
