Lo-Fi-Fnk @ Fontana's, NYC (BV CMJ show) - Nov 3, 2006
Lo-Fi-Fnk @ Fontanas

Laptop or no laptop, Sweden's Lo Fi Fnk (Leo and August) are coming back to the States to pay us a visit. Last time they were here for CMJ. They played a few shows including one at Galapagos and my day party at Fontana's. Here's what they had to say about that:

We are back from the United States both physically and mentally. It sure was a wicked time and makes u understand why Americans think of Europe as the same country, not just the same continent. Cause this was something really different even though we only saw NYC and Philadelphia. We wanna give a big high five to Greg and Darren who made it happen and everyone who we met(like john lee). Thanx for teaching us all the trendy words and phrases which we 4 sure will use in our euro-american lyrics and which 4 sure will be totally not cool and trendy when you will get to hear the tracks.

This time they'll see many more American cities including LA, Miami, and Austin (SXSW). They'll also come back to Philly & NYC to play some shows (dance parties) with Datarock. Should be good. All dates below...
