Alex G is no longer a well-kept secret of the Temple house show scene. These days if he plays a basement, it’s a surprise set kept under wraps until after the last band on the lineup plays. If he plays a show in Philly at all, it’s a sold-out gig at the First Unitarian Church or a headlining spot at Union Transfer.
Meanwhile, a flurry of announcements about festival slots around the globe are streaming in and today the band starts a two week jaunt across Europe and the UK (and not for the first time). But, luckily for us, he’s not leaving his Philadelphia roots behind just yet as we see in a new video for “Bug,” taken from last year’s Domino Records debut Beach Music.
