It’s safe to say at this point that the holidays are over and it’s time to get the nose back to the grindstone. Unlike our Winter vacations though, the steady stream of incredibly talented musicians making appearances here in Philadelphia is something that will simply never end. We’re kicking off 2015 right with tons of great shows, one of the most prominent being the Astronaut School Tour, which will be kicking off right here in Philadelphia with the tour’s very first show on Friday, January 16th at Underground Arts.

The tour features two prime candidates to help mentor us during our time at astronaut school: Brooklyn based Space Jesus and Oakland based Freddy Todd. Both of these space explorers have uncanny approaches to their production: Space Jesus is a true master of crunked out psychedelic hip-hop beats, while Freddy Todd kicks enough glitched-out beats to leave your head spinning for days.

Joining these two mighty basstronauts for the tour’s Philadelphia date is Boston jamtronica group Wobblesauce, who promise to bring an extra thread of energy to the evening. Doors open at 9, music kicks off at 10, and then it’s straight into our first astronautics lesson.

Select dates of the Astronaut School Tour will also feature live painting by The Welch Brothers, as well as a specially designed stage installation piece by Jeremiah Allen Welch (see the tour ‘s first leg/Northeast dates below for details).

In addition, Funkadelphia is giving away 2 tickets to the Astronaut School Tour’s Philadelphia date. Head over to our Facebook page to enter (you must be 21 or older to enter the contest or attend this show). The giveaway officially ends Tuesday, January 14th at 12PM (EST). Winners will be announced through the Facebook page soon after and contacted directly. Enter the ticket giveaway HERE!
