Friendly Fires

Thursday during CMJ (10/23) I headed over to the BrooklynVegan CMJ day party at Pianos to see Friendly Fires for a third time after seeing them at Bowery on Tuesday and popping round the corner to the Annex after Wednesday's show at Mercury. Friendly Fires were consistently awesome each time, but I think they played some different songs at Pianos making that set even more enjoyable. After they finished I hung out for a while and was able to catch Sebastien Grainger and the Mountains, who I thought were very good, despite not being an electronic/dance act. They basically rocked in a very straightforward and loud way (like lots of less than amazing bands do) but Sebastien Grainger and the Mountains were actually talented musicians, so it was good. - Showtrotta
Of all the bands who played the BV party that day, Friendly Fires definitely won "biggest draw". Based on that logic, I'd say they're sure to pack the Annex in NYC (again) on December 9th. Tickets are on sale. They also play Spaceland in LA two days earlier. More pictures from that Pianos show below...

I saw them at CMJ. The sound was good but they are super cheesy, I didn't find them innovating.

Anyone know how to avoid paying the booking fee for Annex shows? It's $3.25 per ticket on Ticketweb which on a $12 ticket is pretty damn high.
