Foster the People

Last night, I went to a concert in Philadelphia with M and my intrepid friend, Lisa. We saw Foster the People in concert (high energy from start to finish, fantabulous music and stagecraft, and made of all-around win!) and their opening band, Gardens and Villa (whose album I will be purchasing when it goes on sale next week - they were also most excellent).

Foster the People is best known for its hit, "Pumped Up Kicks", which is a perky, happy sort of tune accompanying grim lyrics about shootings. I happen to be a huge fan of the band's, as well as being a fan of perky songs about serious and/or sad subjects (such as The Smith's "Girlfriend in a Coma", The Jam's "Smithers-Jones" or Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer").



The crowd was full of happy, dancing fans and the show was well worth it's extremely reasonable ticket price ($14, plus another $8 in fees - I KNOW!). See this tour if you possibly can!

I discovered Pumped Up Kicks a few weeks ago and love it. :) How fun you went to their concert!

It was a really great concert - both bands were excellent, and Foster the People had tremendous (and very positive!) energy throughout.
