    Default Friendly Fires...make it happen Paul!

    Saw these guys open for the virgins at spaceland a while back. Their performance out shined the virgins. Last night they played a set at cinespace just before DJ Falcon took the stage. Their set had such good timing, energy and integrity. The band had even the most jaded concert goers jumping. I think 2009 will be a good year for Friendly Fires and I think they should be at Coachella 09 (Gobi Tent)

    i went to the cinespace show too and thought they were better this time than opening for the virgins, totally agree. also went over to the echo to see them do a free show the next night where they only did one song but ed was super friendly and recognized me from sending him myspace messages...

    That song about jumping in a pool is good.

    I hear some early prince influence on "in the hospital" and lcd soundsystem on "on board" I think that is my favorite song off the album...at least live it is. I can hear some radio 4 and vhs or beta in thier popier stuff. all in all its a solid album

    I would LOVE to see these guys in '09. Just saw them a couple weeks ago in NYC and loved the show. They'd kill one of the tents.

    BUMP.

    Ok, so maybe many of you have not even heard of Friendly Fires. I totally support this thread. The band is amazing and they HAVE to be at Coachella 2009.

    Here are some vids for those who've never heard 'em:

    Paris


    Jump in the Pool


    On Board


    Cheers

    I wish I was in the video for On Board. It looks like all kinds of fun. I would hope their live show is the same way.

    I just discovered these guys through this board a few days ago. Super fun album, and if they're good live, count me as there!

    saw them twice, they played spaceland a second time but I missed it. I hope they are on the list. I will just assume that they are and take a chance on making an ass out of u and me.
