Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater, or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a general-admission ticket (up to a $39.45 value, including service charges) to see UB40 at the Electric Factory on October 10 at 8 p.m. The ticket can be picked up at the box office any time during box office hours or on the day of the show.

One of the best-selling reggae bands of all time, UB40 will fill the Electric Factory’s intimate club space with some of the hits that have sold more than 70 million records worldwide. Slow-groove with a lover or confused survey-taker to the scintillating reggae backbeats of “Red Red Wine,” the politically charged “Food for Thought,” and many more. Rob Paine will DJ with a dense mix of house, reggae, and dub before special guests SOJA dread the crowd’s locks with a warm-up of intricate reggae drum and bass melodies.

For the past 40 years, the Electric Factory has been Philly’s go-to spot for an eclectic array of live music. This season alone, the acoustical institution will host the B-52s, Jimmy Eat World, GWAR, Bad Religion, Guster, Insane Clown Posse, and Bing Crosby.

Customer Reviews

Boy George's voice is as clear and strong as ever. He engaged the audience and made us all feel like we were a part of the show. The entire band was awesome. One of the greatest shows I have ever seen.
