Frightened Rabbit @ the Siren Festival
Frightened Rabbit

"Before starting their encore, Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit admitted to the crowd, "We had such a crazy year of touring last year that it was like 'Oh fuck, touring again?' But you guys have changed our mind tonight." It was clear that he was being sincere. The sold out crowd at Maxwell's in Hoboken (7/17) was a rabid one. They cheered loudly after each song, listened intently to most, and sang along to a few. The band grew more comfortable as the set went on despite how hot the room got." [Blackraptor]

Scotland's Frightened Rabbit will continue touring North America, on and off, for most of July, August and September. Like Built to Spill, Frightened Rabbit played Maxwell's, the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago, and the Siren Festival in Brooklyn over the weekend (including Thursdaya)....
