Friendly Fires @ Bowery Ballroom (more by Chris La Putt)
Friendly Fires

Friendly Fires just played two nights at the Bowery Ballroom on March 26th and 27th. Coming up, the UK band has two more NYC shows on the far horizon. They'll play (Le) Poisson Rouge on Wednesday, August 12th (Tickets), and the next night, Thursday, August 13th, at Music Hall of Williamsburg (Tickets).

Accompanying Friendly Fires on many of their upcoming shows (though not NYC, as of now) is Hockey, who played four New York shows earlier in the year.

The bands seem to be splitting festivals, with Friendly Fires at Coachella in the US (and lots overseas) and Hockey playing Sasquatch and Bonnaroo (with lots of UK/European fests, as well).

saw them at the annex last year and just got my ticket to see them at le poisson rouge. what's not to like? they aren't trying to be the beatles. its just good dance rock.

Not Trying to Be the Beatles should be the name of a band. Anybody? Anybody?

Also, I like Friendly Fires. "Skeleton Boy" is a fun song.
