Fleet Foxes

A wise man once said: "If girls come to the show and sing the lyrics, you know the band is gonna last." The idea is, where the girls go, the boys go, and when you get girls and boys together, you have a happy crowd. Judging by the gender ratio at Friday night's sold-out Fleet Foxes show at Neumo's, the Seattle quintet is in store for a very long, fruitful run. (That wise man was actually roots-rock grandpa Col. Bruce Hampton and the band he was appraising was Widespread Panic. Still, it's a good point.) [The Seattle Times]

Tickets are on sale (@ noon) for the upcoming Fleet Foxes show at Bowery Ballroom.
