The entire week prior, I didn’t know what to expect when seeing Remo Drive at Union Transfer here in Philadelphia, PA other than just wanting to have a blast with everyone else in the room. I was more than excited after listening to their newly released album, Natural Everyday Degradation, and to be able to experience Remo Drive up close & personal!

Once I got to the show I was immediately aware of how loved this new release is by their fans, packing the floor from front to back with an immense amount of excitement. They were jumping up and down before the music had even started - I was excited.

Slow Bullet & Slow Pulp were the first two bands that played and they were more than impressive. The crowd gave all the love that they could spare for them, the excitement only building as time went on. Slow Bullet & Slow Pulp kept the attention of those packed in the room, and sincerely set the tone for the rest of the night.

As Remo began setting their equipment up, you could hear the cheers and the excitement from the audience building up as each of the members stepped out on to the stage. Their presence seemed mesmerizing before they even started to play, which carried on to their opening song off of their last album, Greatest Hits. The first riff began and the audience went into a frenzy.

Once again, Remo’s high-energy showmanship had blasted off the performance. Their brand of high energy indie garage-punk continues to electrify the room, significantly improving and packing rooms with each passthrough in our wonderful city. You will find the dates for the rest of their tour on their website, as well as where you can check out the new album.

I highly recommend it!

This weekend “South Jersadelphia” band Burned Out Still Growing will be playing at The Barbary, opening up for Endless Taile.
