The Ferd Rocks The House!

Wow-ee! energy blast! electric musical moments! Franz Ferdinand kicked major posterior at Roseland last night (pictured right). A highly kinetic display of charimsa, sharp playing, formidable songwriting, and fey-scotch-art-student-chic. Five hundred spectators became one surging, bopping, singing, saluting mass as FRF dazzled with their instant classics, 'Take Me Out,''Matinee,' 'Tell Her Tonight,' and, best of all, their homoerotic ode to the pleasures of dancing closely with 'Michael.' Shimmering multicolored lights bathed FRF and its warm-up bands, which were: the Futureheads with by-the-numbers guitar new-wave with a-capella overtones, and the Delays, two 'right on time' sets of british brothers with intriguing melodies and arrangements, crowned by impossibly beautiful and high-pitched lead vocals and good playing.More concert pictures to come. Up tonight: Scissor Sisters, the gay pop sensation that's rocking the nation. This will be the third time this summer I've seen them with Thomas, this time, at Irving Plaza.

Pardon My French / Pour Mes Amis Français

Found in Translation, for my friends Denis & Christian: La-haut: Franz Ferdinand, les rockers écossais qu'on a vus hier soir a Roseland. Ils ont fait sensation, avec leur energie, performance brilliante, et leur air étudiant d'art de sexualité floue. Leur tubes ont fait sauter, crier, et suer les 500 spectateurs. Jeudi j'ai été trempé jusqu'a la moelle, voyez la photo prise par un collegue - c'était notre tour a faire face a la terrible Frances qui a démoli la Floride. Des pommes artistiques en plastique sont apparu un peu partout a Manhattan, j'ai mis des photos mercredi. Mardi, j'ai racconté ma visite au siege temporaire du Musee d'Art Moderne a Queens, pour voir l'expo des nouveaux gratte-ciel formidables qu'on construit en ce moment.
