Japanese Breakfast's Union Transfer run extended to five nights; Spirit of the Beehive opening new dates - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Japanese Breakfast is making history in a lot of ways.

The Philly-rooted indie band turned breakout pop sensation is grabbing near-constant headlines these days, between their Billboard chart-climbing third LP Jubilee, as well as frontperson Michelle Zauner’s bestselling memoir Crying in H Mart, her work on the score for the video game Sable, and a sure-to-be legendary run of shows at Union Transfer.

Initially the venue’s first-announced new concert in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the early August engagement with Japanese Breakfast sold out its initial three nights with openers Mannequin Pussy; two additional shows have been added with Spirit of the Beehive on August 10th and 11th. To us, this definitely seems like something Philly music fans will talk about years down the line — I can just picture lots of future “I was there”-s about that time Japanese Breakfast played five consecutive nights at Union Transfer.

Tickets for night four are on sale now, while tickets for night five go on sale this Friday, June 25th at 10 a.m. Keep an eye on the Union Transfer website for information on the venue’s COVID-19 health and safety regulations.

Japanese Breakfast’s recently appeared on World Cafe, performing a full band set from Spice House Sound in Fishtown and chatting with host Raina Douris about the album, the memoir, and more. Listen to that below.
