Franz Ferdinand are playing at The Commodore tonight and I am PUMPED. The three (!) times I’ve seen them have been epic dance parties, especially their last Commodore show. Is there a better live venue in Vancouver for big acts? I think not.
Plus, I’m going with some awesome friends, including Ethel. I intend to DANCE. I’m also going to listen to their three albums on a loop at work today.
In the meantime, please enjoy this giddy, hilarious, and appropriately laudatory review of their debut LP on Pitchfork (“They’re poised to be the next Duran Duran or the next Pulp” indeed!), brought to you by the guy who wrote the most overwrought review in the history of music criticism. I love Kid A too, but come on. Anyway, I’m in the mood for hyperbole tonight, so I will dance my face right off!
