Fleet Foxes - Webster Hall 10.05.08

Thanks to Alex for taking these pictures with my broken camera

Second night in a row of Fleet Foxes bliss. I know, I really am spoiled. Same amazing sounds, different banter. That's really the charm of these guys; they love to respond to the audience. I like how someone just randomly yelled out, "Ren and Stimpy!" To that, Casey Westcott joked that there was no open invitation for random pop culture references. The best moment was when someone yelled, "Play Katie Cruel," right after Robin had done just that.

Oh, and if you were wondering, Robin spent the day in Williamsburg. Seems appropriate.

Does anyone know what "important" attending people were responsible for making FF nervous tonight?

I'm going to keep this short, so check out the post on last night's Grand Ballroom show here for more details. Click here to hear more songs, read about other FF shows, and to see a video performance of "Crayon Angels."

If you haven't seen Fleet Foxes yet, you seriously have no idea what you're missing. I feel sorry for you. After this tour, FF is heading back to Seattle to record their next album. So, it may be awhile until you can see them again. :( Sad face emoticon is definitely appropriate here.

The "important attending people" could have been Dan from Department of Eagles. Just a guess.

dan rossen??? it's funny that you say dan from DOE instead of dan from grizzly bear. maybe it's because their record release show is tomorrow... would love to get tickets to that.

I saw Chris Taylor from G Bear (who is also in DOE I might add), so Dan was probably also there. It was definitely at least a partially G bear related comment though.

here's a video I filmed of Silver City...


Sorry for the video quality, had to switch quality settings, due to memory shortage. The sound is alright though.
