Friendly Fires @ Terminal 5
Friendly Fires

"By the second song, the soaring, drum-heavy hit "Jump in the Pool," Macfarlane had jumped into the crowd, carrying the handbells he was playing. He was back in the crowd two songs later for "True Love," singing from the middle of the audience, then pushing back to stage.

If Macfarlane's antics were reminiscent of a younger Bono, it was no surprise: Some of Friendly Fire's songs clearly echoed U2 - especially "Chimes," with its soaring guitars and two drummers pounding out military beats. They also were incredibly tight.

Other songs were downright disco - "On Board" and "Skeleton Boy" -- again appropriate, with the enrapt crowd essentially becoming the throbbing mass of a rave, jumping and clapping as much as dancing -- by halfway through the set." [Lehigh Valley Music]

Friendly Fires played their 2nd-to-last tour date with Theophilus London last night (10/26) at Terminal 5 (they finish tonight at Paradise in Boston). More pictures from the NYC show below...
