Fans of the dancier edge of 70’s post punk would do well to be in PhilaMOCA on September 6th when R5 Productions bring British agit-funk band Shopping back to Philadelphia. The band will be touring on their acclaimed new album, The Official Body, a fiercely danceable selection of songs that regularly draws comparison to Talking Heads, Gang of Four, and ESG (Shopping supported the latter two bands on previous tours).

A performance at Johnny Brenda’s earlier this year was singled out as “one of the best things of the year so far” by some anonymous WXPN sources (aka a variety of people on our editor’s Twitter feed), so we can expect that Shopping will once again stun the city in September. Tickets are available now at R5 Productions; watch the video for The Official Body opener “The Hype” below and listen to the band’s Indie Rock Hit Parade live session.
