Phantogram: The music of Phantogram can be placed into a number of electronic music sub-genres that somebody seems to sit around and think up. What's certain is that the driving percussion, synthesizers, distorted guitar, ethereal sounds, and melodic vocals of Phantogram have become a favorite of audiences around the world. International tour dates and the duo's lone album have been spreading the popularity of Phantogram, and the stage has been set for a hugely successful career. Audiences can find out what they're all about on the remainder of their 2011 tour dates.

Guitarist Josh Carter and keyboardist Sarah Barthel had been friends since junior high, but didn't start making music until their college years. Carter had written some beats as a side project from his main band, and Barthel showed talent in adding to them. After playing local tour dates in Sarasota, New York, they released two EPs and scored hits with the singles "Mouthful of Diamonds" and "When I'm Small". Following an acclaimed performance at Sasquatch in 2010, Phantogram released their debut album, Eyelid Movies, which became critically acclaimed for its unnerving yet cohesive sound.

The success of the album has led to huge performances at Lollapalooza, Treasure Island, and Outside Lands, and fans are still excited over Phantogram's remaining tour dates in 2011. August holds performances in Chicago, California, and Michigan, and September will features shows in the Pacific Northwest. Phantogram's last 2011 tour date is on November 17, so plan accordingly to avoid missing these rising electronic stars.
