Frames

"While Glen Hansard is more recently known for his 2008 Oscar win for co-writing 'Falling Slowly' and being one-half of the folk duo the Swell Season, his first band the Frames is what has made this singer and songwriter a legend in the Irish rock scene. So when the band celebrated their 20-year anniversary, it was obvious that Hansard was overwhelmed by the heroes' welcome he, Colm Mac Con Imoaire, Joe Dole, Rob Bochnik and Graham Hopkins at New York City's Terminal 5.

"Sincerely everybody, we really appreciate you coming out to us," Hansard told the packed venue on Saturday night (Nov. 20). "We thought you've forgotten us. You've given us a great welcome."" [Spinner]

The Frames played 21 career-spanning songs on Saturday night, four encores, and the Swell Season's Marketa Irglova on piano for a tune, included. The crowd, as Glen Hasnard even pointed out, was heavy with Irish accents. They cheered appreciatively and even broke out into the signature football (soccer) chant of "ole ole" between songs.

Jake Clemons opened the show with, according to Toby, "a 40 minute set of up-tempo country pop tunes. Before he left the stage he declared his gratitude to the Frames for allowing him to open for them and was quick to credit Glen Hansard for being the reason he learned to play guitar in the first place."

The Frames kicked their North American tour off in Philly on Friday, but stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon one night earlier. Video from that TV appearance, with more pictures, videos, and the setlist from Saturday night's NYC Show, and the rest of their tour dates, below...

Jake Clemons is the nephew of Clarence Clemons of the E Street band, and played sax during the last Swell Season tour.

Did he not play his acoustic at the show? Wanted to go but couldn't make it. Looks like a great show!

He definitely broke out the acoustic. Maybe 4 or 5 songs in.

Show was great but T5 continues to be awful. Crowd upstairs was loud &
disruptive even after Glenn asked them to be quiet. Jake Clemons & two
associates were part of that nosiy crowd- disrespectful for an opener.

Too bad this was at Terminal 5. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice ...

Really great pictures and videos. It looks like they put on a real show there.
Maybe next time they'll get a better venue for their concert. And a better crowd, for that matter.

T5 is very lucrative for touring acts. Despite all the (warranted) complaints, it's not going away anytime soon.

So many T5 shows sell out.

Diss it all you want, but people buying tickets.

People who complain about this place are among the most vapid concert goer out there. If you don't like the venue, don't go. Bitching only makes you look like a whiney anonymous pussy

10:45-

It is perfectly valid for someone to complain about Terminal 5. I, along with many others, have had concert experiences completely RUINED due to overzealous security acting like they're a SWAT team, overcrowding and trampling due to oversold shows (sometimes leading to heat stroke), soundsystem breakdowns, and of course, the fact that you DO NOT have a view if you show up after doors open, even though you paid full ticket price.

Terminal 5 is a horrendously designed venue that is a health hazard, a fire hazard, and a very unpleasant place to see a band. It is also unfortunately is run by a cash-gargling monopoly that can pretty much pull any kind of shit they want in New York and STILL make money. You're absolutely right that Terminal 5 will not close in the near future, because Bowery Presents has the power to work appealing deals with talent agencies and consistently book GOOD acts that people in the United States' largest city WANT to go see. Between casual fans, people who have never been to T5 before, and those of us who decide to give it "one more chance" because maybe it won't suck this time around, T5 has no problem selling 3000 tickets.

But, if you're like me, and enjoy going to shows quite often - you would be upset at the absolutely embarrassing and extremely frustrating quality of Terminal 5, and be almost depressed at the fact that our favorite bands will continue to play there regardless of our sentiment.

I personally like T5. I have never noticed this "bad sound" everyone talks about, and find that these audiophiles are acting like a bunch of yuppies.

As far as the swat team security you refer to, I have smuggled hummus in there multiple times and eaten it on the dancefloor.

And although the sightlines can be a bit of drag, head on down to the tranny shop and get yourself some platform sneakers.

I was upstairs too and it was loud! Especially by the bar where I was standing. I could be wrong, but I think Jake may have been talking to fans and asking them to keep it down. I only saw him up there for a moment. Either way his set was solid and The Frames were unbelievable!!! I was just glad to be there.
