Phantogram brings Three to the Queen City

Phantogram is sure to bring the heat this summer

Dynamic duo Phantogram has kicked off their summer tour following the release of last year’s album Three. The electro-rock two-piece consisting of long time friends Sarah Barthel (lead vocals/bass/synth) and Josh Carter (vocals/guitar) started the concert season off with a bang, with back to back performances at Coachella earlier this spring, and have a numerous dates scheduled across North America this summer – including a stop here in the Queen City on July 22nd at The Fillmore Charlotte.


Known for their sinister synths, killer beats, and alluring atmospherics, the pair never fails to put on one hell of a must-see performance. From their vibrant light shows and full-band sound, to Barthel’s daring, sexy stage persona, if you’ve seen these guys perform before then you already know – there ain’t no party quite like a Phantogram party!

As part of the band’s efforts to continue raising awareness for mental health issues, starting on July 14th the band will be donating one dollar for every ticket purchased to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Their efforts were strengthened after Barthel’s older sister (who was also close friends with Carter) took her own life last year during the making of Three.

On select dates, Phantogram will be joined by ambient project/producer Tycho. So mark your calendars, and prepare to dance the night away!

* = with Tycho

Born and raised in North Carolina, Cynthia Haithcock is a self-taught photographer who has always had a love for taking photos. Along with photography, music is also one of her greatest passions in life. She attended her first concert in her early teens, which soon after resulted in her spending most of her youth at numerous gigs. She quickly became addicted to documenting the music scene and began further pursuing digital imagery while shooting local rock and metal bands in various cities around NC. She later joined Shutter 16 in 2011 and has since had the opportunity to cover many talented acts, both local and national. From crowded bars, to sold out stadiums, few things make her happier than being behind the lens, especially when it involves combining and sharing her favorite forms of art.
