Foals

"I haven't seen people having so much fun as they did at Foals show last night in a long time. It was among the best of the 100+ shows I've seen this year. If I can get tickets, I'll see them again tonight." [Anonymous]
Foals kicked off a two night stay in NYC with a show at Bowery Ballroom on Friday, 10/1 (pics in this post). The crowd was also treated to the dark folk styles of Esben & The Witch who opened the show. Foals played Music Hall of Williamsburg the next night (pics coming) and are now on tour. They hit Austin City Limits on 10/10 and log more US dates before heading back to the UK by month's end.

Esben & The Witch, who also played Matador 21 over the weekend, will be back in NYC to support A Sunny Day in Glasgow on 10/26 at Knitting Factory. Tickets are still available.

I went to see this Foals band! I don't usually go to these kinds of shows (or go on or post on these types of websites) but some hipster girl dragged me to it. I just wanted to say I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the show....and how good that pussy tasted.

Really stellar performance. The crowd was totally up for it as well. Most fun I had at a show in a long time, maybe since Dan Deacon at Red Hook back in June. I'll definitely check Foals out on their next run through town.

I WANTED to see this Foals band... I usually go to these kinds of shows (and post on these types of websites) but some hipster girl dragged me to a falafel stand instead. I just wanted to say I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the place....and how good that hummus tasted.
