Mojo's will be welcoming Phantasm back to the stage on Sept. 6.
Philadelphia-based rock trio Phantasm has been touring for years, and with hundreds of shows to their credit, they show no signs of slowing down. After getting their start in Western New York playing local venues including the now-defunct Casa de Tonic and The Rusty Nail, Phantasm headed to Philadelphia.
Since their formation, the group has shared the stage with notable acts including Andrew W.K. and Mos Def. They're now set to take the stage at venues across the Northeast with The Memorials, featuring Thomas Pridgen, previously of The Mars Volta.
Phantasm will perform at Mojo’s on Sept. 6. The Philadelphia rockers got their start in Western New York.
According to the members of Phantasm, they are extremely excited to be a part of this tour, which will take them across the northeastern portion of the U.S.
"This is right where we need to be," said drummer Jay Yachetta. "We are opening for a forward-thinking rock band who are on the rise. Not to mention Thomas is one of my favorite drummers."
Phantasm is also touring to support their newest release, "Impossible Machines."
"While writing this record we really took a step back and tried to hear the song from the audience's perspective. We wanted to make songs that people really love, not just impress them with our playing, or our lust for smashing things on stage," said singer Steven Rosplock. "These songs are for everyone, not just me."
The concert will begin at 9 p.m. and will also feature Mission Bells and The No Good DooGooders. The event is 21 and over. For more information about Phantasm, visit www.enterthephantasm.com.
