Want To See Fleet Foxes Tomorrow?

Better score yourself a set of tickets because the Kilby Court show is nearly sold out. Despite certain local press reports describing Fleet Foxes as a Vampire Weekend-type hype machine, the Washington-based band has serious staying power and talent to burn. The lead singer's voice is otherworldly in a Jim James howling down a tunnel type of way and I can't wait to hear what it sounds like in such intimate quarters. There's nothing like seeing a band play Kilby before they outgrow smaller venues. And with Fleet Foxes opening for Wilco in August (sold out), it's likely they've already reached that next level.

and here's Jim James (let it play a bit, then press pause cause it takes forever to load):

  1. Funny thing is, they were in Urban Lounge not long ago and there were, I dunno, 40 people there? Their album hadn't dropped yet, o'course, and it was even better. No crowds + good tunes = beauty all around.

  2. At the same time,the urban lounge isn't all ages, and sometimes late shows just don't work out when you have to be at work at 6 the next morning.

    regardless I'm excited for this show tomorrow.
