On June 18, 2017, July Talk put on an explosive show for the Radio 104.5’s Summer Block Party at Festival Pier in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Of the bands performing — The Revivalists, Missio, July Talk, Irontom, and Vital Stats — July Talk was the favorite. Peter and Leah appeared to be having as much fun as the audience while they sang and danced in a provocatively playful way. Leah continually interacted with the crowd and at one point jumped off stage and did a tightrope walk along the audience barricade. After the show, July Talk recalled the setlist, "Picturing Love, Now I Know, Summer Dress, Beck and Call, Push and Pull, Guns and Ammunition, The Garden... didn’t keep a copy but I think that’s right."
It was a pleasure to see a young band put on a great show and play live music (without backing tracks.) To really appreciate the band, they need to be experienced live.
