Happy Holidays! I take on more than I can handle. That results in a lot of unposted content. In the name of catching up, while also taking it easy during this final week of the year, here’s some of that lost material.
“This’ll be our last gig for a long time,” reckons Friendly Fires front man Ed Macfarlane, before the band bursts into Lovesick in front of a lively, beered-up crowd at The Coronet [in London].
We hope he’s just being dramatic, because tonight’s gig proves that live, Friendly Fires are even better than their intelligent, original, pop-carnival-dance album suggests. And we’re looking forward to seeing more of them. Soon.
Although their reception is magnified by the audience’s boozing and the lateness of the hour (it’s 1.40am), the acclaim is totally deserved. [Londonist]
That review comes from Friendly Fires‘ London show which was not long after their December 5th show at Webster Hall in NYC where this second set of pictures are from. They’re continued below…
