|This World Fair at the Varsity
THIS WORLD FAIR - VARSITY THEATER, MINNEAPOLIS 5/26/2007
Since the last time I saw This World Fair, Chris now sport a semi-beard.
Toward the end of the set, they took it down a notch and lit candles and did two songs in acoustic style (no heavy drums). One of the acoustic song was that Disturbia song, "Don't Make Me Wait".
Touring was good for them, and listening to Zach (the guitarist) telling about how they loved playing in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Here are some other long-overdue concert reviews:
JET - HOUSE OF BLUES, CHICAGO 5/2/2007
I'm going to assume everybody know about this Australia rock band called Jet, so I'll skip the introduction.
This was a sold-out show. The security was INSANE, they had metal detectors scanning your body for cameras and recording devices, but I managed to sneak in my camera. Which I don't really understand because they let people in with camera-phones :/
They did a cover song, it's an old number, like from the 60s. I couldn't really tell you which song it was - maybe someone can take a look at their setlist and tell me.
The "Are You Gonna be my Girl" song set the audience into a frenzy, obviously.
By the way, I thought the drummer was really impressive. He can really drum, and he also sings on certain songs, this guy is amazing.
|The Kooks at the Metro
THE KOOKS - THE METRO, CHICAGO 5/5/2007
These guy are from Brighton, and they stole their name from a David Bowie song. They've only have one release Inside In/Inside Out (Jan 2006), but they are well loved by their fans.
Nothing really stood out at this show, the lead singer did some crowd surfing (which the venue have a strict policy against crowd surfing and stage diving with their signage as you enter the venue!)
I saw about three other people from Minneapolis (which basically means that the Kooks decided to skip Minneapolis in favor of Chicago.)
