Franz Ferdinand and Sparks FFS

FFS, the supergroup combo of Franz Ferdinand and Sparks, put out their genuinely great debut album earlier this year and they've just announced a short North American tour for the fall. While it will be cool to hear FFS songs like "The Man Without a Tan" and "Piss Off," having Franz Ferdiand back the Mael brothers on Sparks classics like "This Town Aint Big Enough for the Both of US," "The Number One Song in Heaven" and "Achoo" may be the real appeal. (They do Franz Ferdinand songs too.)

The NYC date happens October 6 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/7) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (85) at noon.

All dates are listed, along with FFS music videos and their performance on Later with Jools Holland and their entire Glastonbury 2015 performance, below...
