Franz Ferdinand @ Hammerstein Ballroom - 10/22/13
Scottish dance-punks Franz Ferdinand returned earlier this year with their fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, and after doing a surprise, intimate show in Brooklyn over the summer, they brought their tour (which also hit Chicago) back to NYC this past Tuesday (10/22) to pick on a venue their own size, Hammerstein Ballroom. Opening the show was dream pop musician Frankie Rose (who played her own show a month ago) and Casual Sex.
Franz played a chunk of their new album at the show, but also delivered the hits, playing old favorites like "The Dark of the Matinee," "This Fire," "Michael," and "Take Me Out." Pictures from the show are in this post.
