Last Sunday, Phantogram headlined the Palace Theater for the final night of the venue’s re-opening weekend. The sold out space was HUGE, cavernous at the upper levels, but the views were solid from pretty much all angles. The crowd arrived ready to have a good time and opening band, The Veldt, did a great job of harnessing that energy. The snow was falling outside, but you wouldn’t have known it by the size of the crowd just before Phantogram went on. The stage display made their performance even more dazzling and lead singer Sarah Barthel was electric from the moment that she stepped on stage. The sound throughout the evening was excellent as well as the lighting, the Palace is worthy of it’s place among Minneapolis’ top venues. Phantogram played a gamut of their most recent hits, including an encore performance that gave everyone more than their money’s worth. A stunning display, I’d recommend buying your tickets early the next time they’re in town. Check out the photos above and be on the look our for more from Phantogram.
