These Brooklyn-based “genre-undefining hyper weirdos who make music to swim dangerously to” are hitting the North Star Bar in Philadelphia [2639 Poplar St.] on Saturday, March 1. Also on the bill are Ski Lodge, The Belle Game, and Literature. The show starts at 9pm and it’s just $10.
The broad-based amalgamation of disparate members melts into the most perfect elixir of gooey coolness. Starlight Girls has toured America multiple times and a 20-date March tour has been announced. Reflecting a unique sound that pairs musically with bands across a wide spectrum, Starlight Girls have previously shared the stage with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, St. Lucia, Tilly and the Wall, and Kate Nash.
Starlight Girls collaborated on a 7” with Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu which SPIN declared “Undeniably Luminous.” The band has also been featured in Billboard Magazine, Noisey, Wild Honey Pie, VICE, Daytrotter, and more. While drawing from eclectic influences that reflect the varied musical background of the five members, the band is always playing the perfect soundtrack for surfer spies who like to rock out.
