Inside the Electric Factory: The Music and The Magic

Prev2 of 6Next

Going into the venue brought a completely different vibe. Even though I had been here multiple times before to see acts that included (but not limited to) The Script (my review here), Yellowcard (review), and Fitz and The Tantrums (review), the familiarity I felt before turned into a spiritual appreciation as I took everything in: the concertgoers, the space-like lamps, the merchandise stands adorned with shirts, flags, and posters; the fantastic art displayed on almost every wall in the venue (and yes, the bathrooms, too), and, of course, the way that everyone in the crowd unites when the live music begins. Nothing can match up to the experience that the Electric Factory gives to who matters: the music lovers. Though you might have gone to EF maybe a thousand times since its official opening back in 1995 (this year celebrates it’s 20th anniversary!), there are some things you might not have known about the hallowed venue. But first, let’s see how this wonderful place came to be…

    I think my favorite moment at the Electric Factory has not happen yet…because I think my favorite moment will be when I see The Neighbourhood play there in October! They are one of my favorite bands ever and besides playing at Made in America last year, they haven’t really had their own set in Philly, so it’s pretty exciting!

    side note- I love that the Electric Factory was designed and created for the fans (and I didn’t know the location was an old General Electric Factory, makes sense though).
