Loved it. Hope to see lots more of them.
The Joy Formidable will be chatting and playing a track live on tinychat tomorrow.
Wouldn't it be rather cool if we could get some acts to do a track or two on tinychat in the run up to the 2012 festival (IE after lineup announcement), maybe just from their rehearsal space/another show.Quote:
With just a week to go 'til we finish our North American tour and as we really enjoyed the brief webchat we did in SXSW; we've decided to do another one this Saturday, tomorrow at 2pm Kansas City time (Central time) ( That'll be 8pm in the UK, 3pm on the East Coast, 12pm on the West Coast). You can log in to the chat at Tinychat.com/TheJoyFormidable and we'll be performing a track, answering questions, talking nonsense, the usual.
they were the perfect start to a perfect saturday:thu however, i do have a suggestion for ritzy:
seriously one of my favorite sets though
I would like to personally thank The Joy Formidable for writing the song of the year "Whirring". xxx Dave

great great set, never expected such power
i still need to go through pictures. These are the 4 i grabbed out of the bunch to put on the internets:
Crap i wish knew about that tinychat show.
This reminded me of seeing Bob Mould early in the Gobi a few years ago. Loud as hell, amazing set, and setting the bar for the rest of the day. They were fantastic. My friend just saw them in Pittsburgh, where they played for less than 75 people (much different than playing Coachella).
they were awesome on conan last night, everyone went nuts
He probably desires it after changing lanes without signaling before the show.

Their fee is $5/ticket, flat.
Why does every band I fall in love with end up on a Twilight soundtrack?
And "Endtapes" is such a great song. But if bought from iTunes, I will have to suffer the awful album cover art popping up in my screensaver.
Free show tonight at the Joint in Vegas. Get there early its first come first entry til capacity.
Album out in UK on 21st, going to see them on 23rd. SO long since I last saw them.
I was lucky enough to meet them on my birthday in 2012. They were extremely nice and approachable.
The Joy Formidable does no wrong, and I'm impatiently awaiting their new album next week. It's been getting great reviews by several of the music rags.
Wolf's Law is fantastic.
the new album is a weak album 4 decent tracks on there, but then again add those 4 to their 6 other decent tracks and theyve got a decent sized setlist
So they're out. Toronto/Montreal weekend 1.
90's Rock as never sounded soooo good. Hope they drift over to Coachella.
They opened for Passion Pit at the SB Bowl a few weeks ago. I hope they make it to Indio (they will)
Sadly (truly), they're done touring for a while. Ritzy said they will be working on new material but that probably won't be finished until later next year at the earliest. Thought they might be a repeat for 2012 but not so (missed the 2011 set cuz of the ungodly early time slot). Really hope the next album gives them the attention they deserve.
